    "CHEAP Kit Cars That SMOKE"

    This came up out of the blue on YouTube and features some members cars......
    Stratos section starts around 14.53 and goes virtually to the end at 17.20
    Enjoy!

    PS not convinced by the "CHEAP" moniker but I guess it's all relative

    A somewhat sweeping feature with lots of factually incorrect images & stats quoted?
    Sometimes it would be nice if they contacted the manufacturer when compiling these articles to establish some facts and to avoid confusing the viewing public.
    I saw footage of a Tomasz Cecot home built chassis, Tim H's ex Hawk, the Cylone V8 Hawk & in car footage of Claus Aulenbacher's original Lancia.
    There was some good coverage of David's, Richard's, Leigh's & Stephan's cars along with some glimpses of Nick's and Rob's old cars which were actually relevant to the feature.
    Rather than "cheap" the term value for money should be applied.

    I've always wanted a Lanshia Straadoes.

    Oh yes, and Bertone designed the 246 GT Dino, we're led to believe.

    That article is a video version of coffee-table books.... pretty pictures, a few words (ok, a lot, cos he doesn't shut up, but you know what I mean) and not-that-great accuracy. And surely it's not going to inspire anyone to dash out and place an order straight away, without doing further research on costs and build, etc? Or I hope it isn't! Fine as an appetite-whetter though. And I'd love to see him try and get into any Stratos wearing that hat

    Design by Bertone. Just like the Dino. Picture of a 246 Dino.... 'nuff said. Still enjoyed it!
