    Replica Kitcar industry Legends

    I'm setting up a Hall of Fame board or Legends Board on my site 360.illuder.com
    Can you please nominate whuch builder deserves to be on there? and why? Maybe a 20 word history on him.
    Multiple nominations welcome, i'll use the mictures of the wordings you have for them.. Builders can be anyone who'se made a good name by making a kitcar body for production resale. not once off for personal use. Any ideas/suggestions?

    first on my mind Robert at exotic glass
    Mike Vetter and John Watson of course
    The Needles Dance, The Gauges Glow,
    As Engine Speed & Heartbeat Grow,
    Gears They Shift 'Neath Anxious Thumbs,
    SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES...

    My vote would be for Darrell Kirban. He was the "D" in D&R Replcas. If you could have seen the fit & finish of his cars at past Carisle shows you would agree. Also he brought the standards up for the diablo replicas. He had a book out, still may have it, something like Tips for building replicas ( that doesn't sound correct maybe somebody else can remember the name).

    When it comes to legends, then you need to include Bill Tritt and his 1950s Glasspar.

    I would also include Richard Oats with his Sterling design.

    I would say Ray from IFG, he's the one that started with the Lambos 5000s then 25ths.

    Please note Darrell Kirban is no longer with D&R. He started his own Kirban Customs & I believe his main focus now is Corvette aftermarket products.

    Bob Bracey, Corporate Concepts, designed and marketed the Mera. The Mera is the car most all 308 and 328 kit cars were molded off of. 247 made. Sold only as a new car at Pontiac dealers. Never sold as a kit and never installed on a used Fiero.
