    Hello everyone.
    I have owned 3 Z3s so far. Love them :)
    I have designed and am in the process of building a basedZ3 kitcar.
    It's called the Bertini GT25 and I can't wait to get it finished.
    I will post a few pictures of the progress in the Z3 section tomorrow.

    Hello,

    That is something I would like to see.
    I have build a cobra kitcar which is BMW E36 based as underpinnings, but the chassis is "purpose made".
    I suppose what you are talking about is a panel refit, keeping the chassis.

    There is nothing wrong with the Z3 chassis and it's underpinnings/engines/etc.
    So very curious about the result.

    ....as always: it hasn't happened (or isn't happening) unless you have pictures :)

    Welcome Anthony,

    Been following your progress on your Facebook page for a few months now, and I thinks it's a really interesting project. It goes without saying that it won't be to everyone's taste of course, but from the pictures I've seen it should be a head turner like the Z3!

    Cheers, Gary

    kit cars can be quite collectable, the Marcos springs to mind
    I had a Lenham le-mans GT, a Healey sprite based chassis and engine
    I have a picture somewhere
    Wish I had it now

    I thought this was amazing after mentioning I had a Lenham Le-Mans Gt
    This appeared in my inbox from barnfinds
    http://www.barnfinds.com/never-finished-lenham-gt-project/
    I had the roadster with a detachable hardtop
    That brings back fond memories, I was 19 years old then

    Footnote
    I saw one at Silverstone the value was 20k+ a car I should have kept :bashhead:


    I also once owned a 998 Austin Cooper and a Straight six Ford Zodiac at the same time
    A Weekday and weekend car
    What a poser then, a lot hasn't change lol just a lot older
