    Re: Hello all

    Welcome to the site Jon, have you joined the club to get access to the whole site? There's lots of useful advice here whichever route you choose to go down with whichever manufacturer!
    In case you don't know both LB Cars and Hawk have considerably waiting lists so you've got lots of time to source and prepare donor parts before the kit arrives. I'm not aware of any cars for sale at the moment but those that do pop up are usually either advertised here first or linked to if they appear on the usual classic car websites or eBay.
    Cheers
    Guy

    Hi Jon

    Not sure where in West Sussex you are but that is my neck of the woods (Arundel) so if you want a chat about building a Lister Bell let me know. Mine is finished - almost - and is currently being tweaked to get it through IVA (having failed on some relatively minor points).

    I'm sure it will open again and you'll get your order in. Until then the I guess the value of part built kits will keep rising? Let alone the finished articles!

    And yet, hardly anything comes up for sale these days?

    Which is a shame because there must be plenty of unfinished kits sat under sheets in garages belonging to owners who have long since given up or have maybe now even been passed down a generation.
    A barn find Stratos rep must surely be a thing of potential these days?

    If only I had a barn you'd find an unfinished (Hawk) in it. But there is a plan. It involves a house move and it the one we want comes off there'll be the potential for a garage day that doesn't exist here!
