This book looks in depth at the marvellous UK kit car industry - its history, formation, best cars, best people, and its milestones. Tears, laughter and a passion for the underdog shine through in this book.From his unrivalled experience, the author tells the story of some of the great, some of the bad, and some of the most downright crooked characters to have graced this quintessential British industry since 1949, when Derek Buckler offered him a 'replica' kit form version of his little trials car, the Mk5. Steve didn't know it at the time, but Buckler would come to be regarded as the father of the kit industry, even before the term 'kit car' existed.Personal recollections of the main characters reveals some incredibly skilled indivduals - as well as some nutcases - all of whom tried to make a difference.There's lots of interesting facts and obscure information - and with facts, figures, listings, unrivalled photography, and trivia, this book contains just the sort of stuff that true automotive enthusiasts and fans of the underog love ...a real insight into how a kit car manufacturer operates.
