What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Car and Driver, August 2006
Included in “The Homemades: Yes you can build a sports car for just a few grand”

“There’s a good deal of interest these days in backyard car-building, thanks to Ron Champion. In 1996, he wrote a book, Build Your Own Sports Car for as Little as £250. In Yankee greenbacks, that’s about $465. The book shows how to build an inexpensive sports car practically from scratch, but more important, it can get a gearhead thinking, ‘Hey, I can do that!’”
