Back in 2015 I found an article in a French language magazine where the journalist reviewing a Citroen 2CV based Sammio Spyder (known as 'Fireball') had this to say about it -

'...a monstrous stinking turd non-imagination, intended to cut down more of those who want to look ... but who have only stupid.'

Obviously Google translate has jumbled up the words a bit, but the sentiment is still pretty clear.

Anyway, time to carry on building my water-cooled, front engined Outlaw Stinking Turd Speedster using all the non-imagination and stupid I can muster.
That's a bit harsh ! I know there have been poorly built examples of just about every kit / special, but blimey, that is a bit strong !
