Over the past 50 years, since Derek Buckler, founder of Buckler cars, inadvertently started the UK kit-car industry by supplying eager customers with 'replicas' of his clubman racer, the kit-car scene has evolved from one full of 'funny little plastic cars' to today's position where it embraces credible businesses making superb cars, such as Caterham, Westfield and Ultima.
This comprehensive, authoritative and often humorous look at the UK's kit-car scene documents over 1,500 different vehicles, including the successes and the failures, the perennial survivors and the short-lived, the good, the bad and the ugly. Essential reading for all kit-car devotees, and an indispensable reference book for all motoring enthusiasts.
A definitive A to Z of the UK kit-car industry since 1949, marque-by-marque and model-by-model. Packed with original research, exhaustive information and sidebars featuring fascinating and often amusing anecdotes. Over 1,500 entries detailing individual kit cars, most accompanied by photographs. Marque histories, model evolution and specifications. A unique look at the UK's remarkable kit-car industry.
