Can't say I'm a fan. That said, I also can't argue with the time and effort that must have gone into it, and it's nice to see people giving this sort of thing a go.

i think it would have been better if he just tried to weld his own design instead of trying to make it look like a zonda

He's infamous on PH. I only know this because he was also on ClubScuderia which is a forum I subscribe to. He posted pictures on there when he first brought the car into the UK.
Looking at this article it is much improved. He has taken a considerable amount of stick. I think I left detrimental comments (as much as I dare) on the ClubScud thread. This really was dreadful when he first posted it (it's better now, which is all I am saying) and I for one would have been a bit embarrassed at the original pictures.

Nick Truman comes online at page 9 on the above.

I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.

I think the body looks like it's been sculpted out of marzipan. But who am I to talk? It's a hell of a lot better than I would ever be able to create.

What a waste of time and money.

Each to their own, but I think his efforts would have been better spent making a proper kit car.

If he'd gone with his own design he could be the next Lee Noble. Instead he's having his fairly impressive efforts ridiculed. I'm pretty sure I couldn't build a Zonda rep from scratch.

Symon, I remember the Peugeot advert. A cracker and very like the Zondareplicar.

If I couldn't do a lot better than that I wouldn't waste time & effort trying!

Symon. Thanks for the reminder on the 206 ad, always loved it. And the Zonda effort? I couldn't or wouldn't attempt it but fair play to him. A new set of hammers maybe?

Nick is currently posting regularly on the forum I mentioned. He's currently keeping the car and says a few TV/media companies have approached him regarding the car.
