    Re: Restomods vs. Replicas

    For me, personally, the Stratos was the first car I had a poster on the wall for, growing up as a nipper. Come the Eighties & I added an Integrale & a 288 GTO (whilst all my mates were putting up...

    Re: Restomods vs. Replicas

    Ah, ok, I think I get it now. When you use the word "homage" to describe the replicas, then that is my kind-of light bulb moment. I also didn't appreciate how they were originally conceived &...

    Re: Restomods vs. Replicas

    Chris, why is an LB STR "a kit car first & a turnkey product second"? Is that due to the numbers of each?

    I don't hear Caterhams commonly being referred to as kit cars so why an LB? A...

    What a lovely howl.

    The 3.2 V6 in my 156 GTA doesn't "quite" make that same noise :cool:

    Re: Stratos for sale (ebay)

    Good grief, what an absolutely appalling advert. Nigh on 8-year old pics, the briefest of write ups & a "pretty" ambitious sale price.

    I've seen v few LB's up for sale that have actually been made by LB themselves, is that right? I'm still a relative newbie so excuse me if I'm talking poop.
