    You couldn't make it up could you?
    He must get a couple of enquiries and hike the price on the strength.

    Do you remember the notice on the dash?

    Club display and Kart Grand Prix.

    If there is enough interest I would like to organize a club event at Hooton Park Kart circuit at Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. ( Next door to the Vauxhall car plant).

    Re: Litton Corse weights for IVA test

    That will be ideal for Suzanne I think Paul.
    Certainly more than ball park figures.
    The greater chance is you have an S chassis Suzanne the same as Paul's with strut rear suspension.
    Is there...

    Re: Litton Corse weights for IVA test

    For anyone to help with that ( which I cant I'm afraid), you would need to add what specification the Corse is.
    S or I chassis? What engine?

    Yes Norm, given that he thinks that the 'norm' ( no pun intended) is amateurish, then he clearly has not done the research he claims he has. Its actually insulting.

    I see it's now described as a 99.9% replica.
    So a steel monocoque and Dino engine and transmission clearly only adds 0.1% value......

    Re: Zero build

    Yes, not sure I could cope with too much of that...
    I think that's actually the very first LB in that picture. Possibly the chassis that I have wearing the bodywork that went to Paul in the States?

    That wasn't the shell which featured in that great series of photos in a shop in Japan was it Chris? Under restoration?
    Very detailed photos of the original chassis I remember.

    Re: Hello from Cheshire

    Both Alloras in question have been around since the 80's Keith. Not new kits. And the Corse in Crewe has been a long term project too. Even my LB is 10 years old as a kit.

    If it was an unmolested Boxster chassis then surely it wouldn't need IVA testing?

  24. Re: Jaguar sues a bloke who build a replica - and wins!

    Ok Tim. They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Last I saw was a campaign to save Lancia.
    Any connection to the previous ownership or is it all new?
    And should we be worried....!?!?
  25. Re: Jaguar sues a bloke who build a replica - and wins!

    Two sides to every story, like they say.
    Maybe it's a good job Lancia have gone out of business!
