Your Next Project Car Could Come in the Mail

The term "kit car" used to be a four letter word- conjuring visions of sloppy clone cars that no one in the right mind would want to drive. But the times they are a changin'. Companies like Factory Five, Superlite Cars and DF Kit Car are proving that supercar performance can be achieved in your own garage for a fraction of the cost, and a lot more elbow grease. So is a kit car the right choice for you? Well, maybe...

    i went to the factory in detroit for the slc and got a tour around the place by the owner. the basic kit was $48k plus whatever power plant you pick out. many carbon fibre options and engines will fit for the kit. the kit can get up there in price when you add carbon fibre, forged wheels and transmissions. the cost for them to put the car together was around 30k depending on what options you decided on. in total the car could cost over 100k easily for them to build it and 80k for you to build it. the car is incredible.

    As someone who has restored a variety of old Mustangs, 60’s Pontiacs and Buicks, as well as old MG’s.....remember that the work load / time is doubled or tripled by having to take it all apart, clean or replace, and still have to put it all back together. I’ve already decided that my next project will be some form of kit car due to these factors.

The term you were looking for a magnificent I guess. Designed to endure and survive in war and became an icon of peace since, which has sold almost 20 million classic ones in 65 years of production under the name of Volkswagen "people's car" and keep evolving with the brand new ones. I wanted to believe that was an honest mistake.

    this is why I love older cars and just know I am 61 and have been pulling them apart since I was 10 but now day's you have thing's at your disposal I could never dream of so way easier long as you have a place to store and build take your time pick the car after the tools and have fun do not hurry and it will get done faster than you think, I restored Mopar's like them because they are not quirky the parts because a lot of them fit across platforms and a normal toolbox will suffice if you follow the bag and tag rule take digital picks and have a plan you can do it in six months and most of the great parts are bolt-on with very little work or you can just restore it as a faster version of its older self

    Should also mention that kitcars usually have very very poor resale value. Also, I'm curious as to if there's any kitcars out there that come without the need of a donor car. I don't see myself (or anyone, really) buying a Cobalt only to ditch 80% of its parts. Even if it's a wrecked one, it does look like a lot of waste.

    It makes me super happy and hopeful for the future of motor sports seeing as most of the old school gear heads and engine builders who have lived and breathed everything and anything about a motor and how to build, tune, and just know them inside and out all their lives are leaving us by the dozens and most younger kids have no interest in learning about motors or cars in general because once they leave us their lifetime of knowledge and wisdom goes w them and it's lost to time.... also w the government trying to make it illegal to mod your car who knows what the future will bring... but it makes me happy and hopeful for motor sports to see younger kids building and racing their own cars they built themselves picking the brain and listening to a life long gear head and soaking up every bit of info and knowledge he spits out.... it also is cool to see the technology of the day being integrated w the sport.... leaps and bounds have been made In what a motor can do w the technology that is available some old school builder would of never dreamed of making 500 plus hp out of N/A V8! Makes me hopeful for the sport and I'm glad I'm at a age where I haven't seen the end of gas motors and excited to see where its heading! I just hope it's around for my kids to see and enjoy the sound of healthy V8 w a large cam and a open large exhaust! Here's to the future of internal combustion engines!

    Look respect to the kid who's parents bought him a car to build while in high-school and probably drives a jeep wrangler his parents also bought him. he wants to learn cars and you know I spent years building cars and trucks with my dad even until this day at 29. but for what he paid for that catheram that's over 20k because James may drove one in grand tour last season and it's sick as hell. but do you know how sick of a VW Golf 3rd or 4th gen I can build for 20k? it would eat that kit car alive and best part, i can drive it from day one. Im ranting, but I hold my opinion and I doubt many would disagree with me on this one. Respect to Colin for his build though. I was 19 or 20 before I got the building and race car bug in me so best of luck kid. just don't flip it or be stupid. that thing probably scares the shit out of his mom.

    So now I definitely want that kit Shelby 😍. Take the coyote out of my mustang and just place it in that kit.... how hard could it be.... I've changed my own brakes before 😆. I think the biggest issue is the price of these kits. When you can buy a fully running used performance car for the same price, it's hard to justify paying that price of 15+ to then have to build it yourself. Idk that's just my opinion but damn do some look great when completed... minus the interiors. Idk why the interiors always look so cheap/uncomfortable compared to the outside.
