Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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

“This book is useful for Locost builders in the U.S. because it focuses on the Miata as the donor vehicle, a car that is readily available ...  it’s an instructive read.”

                                                                                                                                                                                               

American Car World (UK), December 2006

“This is a good effort and an enjoyable 192-pages that will be a useful addition to your workshop manual type book collection.”

 

Grassroots Motorsports, October 2007

“An absolutely brilliant read for anyone even remotely interested in cars, engineering, high-performance track machinery, engine and suspension tuning or garage projects in general. Turns out Keith’s a fine, often funny writer with a wonderful, practical, nuts-and-bolts grasp of things … Better yet, he puts it into words and phrases that an average Joe can understand. And enjoy. Go online and buy yourself a copy right now.”
