    Maybe you should have tried a slightly more believable number, like 85%

    Re: Forever Cars

    Following on from my response to Dan earlier on in the above thread, a chap called Matt Ware contacted me. Would I be interested in featuring my car in Adrian Flux's Forever Cars section. I subsequently had a long telephone conversation with him detailing the history of my car, this was then followed up by a photo shoot .

    Here is the link to the finished article. https://www.adrianflux.co.uk/forever...ratos-replica/

    Well done, that's a nice piece. It's well written and the photographs compliment the article nicely as well.
    It certainly puts some of the current kit car journo's to shame.

    Re: Forever Cars

    What a great article! You must be like a pig in poo with that! I remember getting mine back in '87, with Stuart Gross delivering the body/chassis unit and me looking at it and thinking similar stuff to your father But, y'know, it wasn't such a bad kit really. I mean, if I managed to get it on the road it must have been a reasonable proposition! Did you imagine you'd still have it 30 years later? I thought, when I saw it on the August run, it had a fantastic patina, properly used but still good. Congrats, and here's to another 30 years, assuming you can still get in it when you're 90

    What a well written article and a great story with lovely pictures! I had written away and had brochures for the Transformer and Allora, then got as far as the CAE build manual, but couldn’t afford it then. Finally started 30 years later.... I love the simplicity of it all. Do keep on enjoying it David!

    Btw, what type of seats are they in your car?

    I bought the seats from Chris Jarvis, they are black leather and were sourced from an S1 Lotus Exige.
