    Hi

    First post, glad to have joined up. Looking for a kit that would use a "pinto style" running gear(since I have one) that is based on a early racer type car such as the Bugatti T-35 or something similar. Any ideas?


    Thanks

    Re: Hi

    Welcome to the forum.As for a Pinto as a doner,I don't know of any kits made for that car.Some of the doner cars that I know of are Fiero,MR2,and Corvett.Most Kits use the Fiero as a doner (chassie).The good news is a Fiero can be baught for as little as $500 (sometimes less)our looking for ( Bugatti T-35 ),I dont think a kit is being made for this car.For a complete list of cars order the Complete Guide to Specialty Cars (usualley listed in kit car magazine or try their web sight).

    Re: Hi

    One important thing to keep in mind - would you wanna spend over $10,000 to modify a car that's worth only a couple hundred bucks ? If you're gonna spend a lot of time and money, make sure you're gonna have something worthwhile when you finish. This is NOT intended to be a dig at your car, just something thought-provoking .... (it's also why I would not condider using a VW, although you can probably still find kits for them on eBay)

    Re: Hi

    There is a replica 1929 Bugatti on ebay now. Is this what you're looking for? Most of them are VW powered. I think there are some built with an inline watercooled four that look more authentic. The VW front suspension is a dead giveaway, but It might be fun to put around in one. They don't go that high in price. You can't build one for what you can buy one for.
