Post your pride and joy here.

You must be proud of it so let everyone else see you handywork.

Pictures need to be hosted somewhere as you will need to link using a full URL. If you have trouble with this or don't have anywhere to host send me an e-mail with the pictures and I'll host them.

Sold it this year but here is (was) my Mk 2 Sumo. Always thought it was the best Mk 2 around (I never saw better) Someone prove me wrong!!



very sad to see it go. Started building it in 1991, finished and registered in 1995 and sold 2003. Loved it but it had to go in the end.

Here's my VVC GTM Libra shortly before being told to drive around the SVA centre and come back when the brakes work!! The bloke didn't fail it though so no retest fee....which was nice!
There are lots of things to do to it now it's SVAd but I can't be bothered as it's just too much fun just driving it!



ER, John...I think I got it wrong again!! How am I s'posed to do it???

No problem Ferg the img url was referring to your page rather than the image.

The image was a bit big anyway so I've nabbed it made it smaller and uploaded it. Hope you dont mind.

Cheers, John

That's great John, I was amazed to see in this months 'Which Kit?' Nigel Dean lining up the Ultima outside that very lane and then getting the same inspector as me as well!!

if I knew how to do this sort of thing, this would be a picture of my Litton, as it was a couple of years ago. In 2005 (when i return to Blightey) it'll become Alien. I could link it:

This is my first post on this forum, hoping it'll be a little more liberal than the StratosSuperSite

It accelerates well, handles well and feels like a extension of my body. The wheels must be exact, but no larger than 15" diameter. . . etc. I don't want to knock such attitudes, but I don't share them. SO for my benefit, and to maybe exorcise my being the black sheep of the Stratos crowd I am evolving the bodywork to something much less Stratos-like.

Welcome to the real world.

I'd love to join the Ferrari owners club, I'd even put a body kit on my MR2, but I still don't think the'd accept me?????

This was my car and still is to a certain point Ive just taken it apart again and a lot of ppl will say its not a 'kitcar' but a body conversion and they will be quite right but my next project will get me there

Hey, no it isn't a kitcar and this is a kitcar forum, but......
that is the nicest body conversion I've ever seen!! It's a great colour for it as well!!

Looks great, but its still a Jag to me. I'd be tempted to completely rework the interior, redesign the glass and rear quarters area and apply a 3-D dazzle ships paint job. But it still wouldn't be a mid-engined sportscar. What are your plans?

In the Stratos community, there are many who want there car as exact a copy as possible, but there are equally as many who just want something that looks like a Stratos from the outside and want to enjoy driving it.

Your own plans for your car are EXTREME to say the least, but I don't believe anyone on StratosSupersite has discouraged you, or failed to help you with information, etc, just because of your plans.

As you know, my own car is far from an exact replica, and I'm more into making it a better car for use in my rally activities, than I am into it being an exact replica. Rallying is much more fun than having a car stood at a show, but, as you say, each to their own.

The following photo is of my car in action.


and hopefully another



As you might realise from the pictures, having my car in concourse condition, is not my overriding concern.

Hopefully, we'll speak in the Stratos Forum soon.
