Kimini 2.2 - Other Builder Links
Some impressive cars that others have built:
Morris Minor/Fiat race car
A really cool site of a guy building a Bonneville racer in his garage much
the same way I built Kimini. A great build diary and lots of pictures
of his continuing construction.
into a MG Midget
A cool site with lots of pictures. He also converted the suspension to push-rod in the front and IRS in the rear.
Mid-engine 4WD 700lb single-seater This
thing will be a terror. He's planning on turbocharging it too. 700lbs
+ 300hp = Yikes! Oh, and now he's installing a 300hp Hayabusa-based V8...
Norton Shrike One man's journey into building his own 3-wheeler from scratch. Hat's off to
him as he designed and built it over 20 years ago. There aren't too many builders who still drive their homebuilt after 20 years!
MR-2 powered, mid-engine, Super-7-esque two seater.
If I had roughly ten times the budget, I'd have to build an Ultima. Here's
Another large group of builders are working on versions of the Locost
sports car. This is yet another Lotus Super-7 type car,
redesigned recently by Ron Champion to use very common and low
cost parts from British cars. This use of cheap parts
produced a book with the (rather optimistic) title "Build your
own Sports Car for as Little As 250 Pounds." While
technically not a true scratch-built car, so many people throughout
the world have modified them so much, that they're all but true
custom cars. This is why I include it here because many of them
may very well be one-offs. Here is
the main site, dedicated not only to Locost builders, but all
builders of one-off, home built cars. A very useful reference.http://www.locostcarclub.co.uk
