My mate had a look at the Minari that Markp2 gave a link for and he says it is a really nicely done build. The engine is sound and it drives well, the interior is the tidiest he has seen.
Unfortunately my mate John is well over six foot and built like 2 brick S***houses, he got in it and drove it Ok, but it was just too tight for him with the soft top.
The guy that built it knows everything about it apparantly, and is a real old enthusiast.
Always nice to buy from the builder!
The link has changed it has now gone on auction instead and the starting price is about 1500 pound less than he was asking as a classified.
Is this a bargain? John is glad he didn't buy it now, despite it's being a gem, he would have been pig sick, typical Yorkshire boy. Mind you if he bought it, it wouldnt have been reduced!!!
the ebay link is now
I think I would rather build the kit, then it is my baby. mind I am crap at mechanical stuff so maybe not :-(
