    The one that hooked me on kit cars

    Funny how things come full cirlce for you at some point in your life. The car pictured below was the very first kit car I ever wanted. It is being sold on ebay right now and has a current bid of $5000.00

    I remember this car was built by a guy in Port Orford, Oregon and I was in grade 11 and just gotten my driver's licence and had to have it. I drove all the way down to Port Orford from Vancouver BC (20 hours or so if I remember) with a buddy only to find out that the builder had left for Hawaii the day before.... Poor planning on our part since a simple phone call would have solved that...... I ended up talking to his friend and who helped build it and then drove back home. Obviously, never got the kit but I always wondered what happened to them. There ended up only being two built.

    Funny, I also remember it being a lot more beauitiful than I see it now.......... ???

    Thought I would share a little nostalgia.

    Who else has an old car that got them hooked on kitcars story?

    Cheers
    Don

    The back needed to be pretty tall to fit the VW Type 1 engine in....
