Mick O'Malley's Moss Monaco
When this was launched in 1984 I was just starting building my first kit, a Dutton Phaeton II, bought new for £752. The Monaco, at £499 immediately appealed to me with its Triumph underpinnings so I sent off for the brochure and had a quiet daydream.
33 years and 15 or so kit cars came and went.
I'm on the Moss page on Facebook and on Boxing morning a post and picture appeared which I 'liked' and commented on to the effect that it was my dream car. A private message appeared on FB a few days later asking if I was interested in an abandoned project. It turned out that the owner didn't think he'd ever be able to finish it, and, as it had been given to him in similar circumstances, I could have it FOC on the condition that I completed it!
I went and had a look yesterday, it's eminently do-able and I'm collecting it on Monday on a low loader. As soon as my Tribute A352 passes its second MOT (imminent) I'll set to.
