This is Bill's car the 'Superscheißekasten'

The car was built over a period of 9 weeks on a reasonably small budget. Bill had very definite ideas on what he wanted. There had to be no polishing, painting or cleaning!

Most of the parts were supplied by Bill himself, and we put it together how he wanted. It's not to everyone's taste, but most people agree that it turned out well. Bill is still dead chuffed with it!

He continues to refine it......maybe a new engine soon?

The Roe's Oval

The car is a South African 1956 oval. It was brought up to UK MOT standard by us a few months before it came back for the major work. The car has had a full bare metal repaint in gloss black. The brake system is now dual circuit with front discs and rear late drums. The wheels are 6"x15" American Torque Thrust II's.

 
More photos to come...

This is Andy's roof chop

This car was originally roof chopped over 12 years ago, and was unused for at least the last 8 years. Andy wanted us to do something very different, and this is what he and Jerry came up with!

The car has: full flip front (with an Audi TT fuel flap); custom US 3" oversize rear wings; solenoid doors; electric windows; teardrop rear lights, billet aluminum running boards; Center Line style copy wheels (8"x15" rear, 5.5"x15" front).

Rear end was rebuilt with metal replacing glass fibre.

Car in Lamborghini Orange, and tinware to match.
Note hidden carb behind fan housing.
