    A 'Credible' Stratos Replica?

    Just what is a credible Stratos replica?, and what would the SEC actually accept or reject?

    Some of us decided that (this idea) isn't credible, but where is the line drawn?

    Does the web site not define the club?

    "The Stratos Enthusiasts Club exists for all enthusiasts of the Lancia Stratos, in all of its forms."?

    Something with longer doors than any Stratos that ever existed ought to be out then?
    I wouldn't want one, anyhow.

    Maybe Michel but I suspect that Chris was averring to one that was built on an MR2 chassis….. The body on the one in your picture was available (at least twice) on eBay a year or two ago minus the chassis.

    As Ian says, if you're an enthusiast you're welcome, we'll look at anything!

    You should have seen some of the debates going on within the Lancia Motor Club recently! Would the club accept Chrysler Delta and Ypsilons? Built in Italy but badged Chrysler in the UK market. Maybe. The new Thema built in USA? Probably not….

    As Guy says Michel, we know that car. I've not seen it in that single colour before though.

    So, is this one ok for the SEC stand?:

    Ho wowww
    Do you really like all these deviations ?
    because am 67 ( old crocodile !!) may be I do like only Stratos when they where born and raced time ago !!
    I do not appreciate all these new shapes ( personnal thoughts only)
    For me Stratos represent a big part of 70/80's car history as the Escort ,Minis and similar famous rallye cars ; involved all along my professional life in track sport cars I never approch the Mytic Stratos .
    So now my interest is only on tempting to learn and know as much as possible on past cars . This is why my next built is a Strat replica .
    I can understand some to be fan of modern ideas but it's not really the scheme I was in cherch , joining the club the max deviation I was admiting was the Gr5 turbo ones !!! LOL
    Was watching also that "Henessy" Gr5 track car ( done by apast kit manufacturer )and it was not too of my taste !!!
