Re: The 1951 Lancer... First of the Fiberglass Sports
I have no beef with glass body cars. True, some of the kits out there are pretty bad (i.e. Fiero-rraris, VW bug Fords). However, some kit builds show a lot of innovation and high quality customization from home builders (just like hot rodding). They provide a good basic platform that can be built on in lots of ways. My dad built a Cobra kit. It's fun, fast, and good looking, and because it was a less expensive kit, he applied lots of fabrication skills and ingenuity to end up with the car he wants to own and drive.
