The Grumpy Grease Monkey mechanical engineer.
This is an opportunity to assemble a unique sports racer, 90% of what you need to complete the project is here, when completed this would be far more than just a kit car, there are a large number of original Lola T70 parts included which if not used on the build could be sold off. Brand New...
no I really don't expect anyone to do this but it would be great
now think how much satisfaction you'll get out of having me post a detailed thread,
of my step by step completing this guys project,
with what I think this projects screaming out for!

I need to find someone who has a great deal of cash to spend to finance a project I could post,
detailed step by step posts on, featuring both the skill and use of tools and what can be accomplished,
by some old geezer with time and skills,
(but unfortunately no where near the personal cash flow required)
just paying the web site, upgrade expenses this month was a P.I.T.A.
