THE ROBIN HOOD KITCAR.

& THE NORTHWEST AREA OF THE OWNERS CLUB

The Robin Hood kit car is  a copy of the famous Lotus 7 sports car, and is built by amateur mechanics at home in their own garages. The car is built up using a kit of parts supplied by Great British Sports Cars and a donor car which is presently the Ford Sierra, although earlier models have used Triumph Dolomite, and Ford Cortina's as Donors. The kit manufacturer has made the kit so that only the one donor vehicle is required, but a number of builders have found that by substituting some assemblies with parts from other vehicles, it will make the final car much better.

Like most kitcars, improvements are made to them from time to time, either to upgrade certain items by fitting aftermarket components, or even fitting larger engines, sometimes from a  non-Ford donor such as the Rover 3Żltr V8, Toyota 1600cc, or the Vauxhall 2ltr, 16v.

The Robin Hood Owners Club is a national club, with over 900 members, and with around 100 members in the North West area, which stretches from Cumbria in the North, to Cheshire in the south, across to Manchester and West of the Pennines  in the east. If you are interested or own a Robin Hood kitcar, live in the Northwest of England, especially if you are still building your car, then you don't know what you are missing if you're not a member of the owners club.

There are approx 15 separate area's, each with an Area Secretary who co-ordinates the activities in each Area.

The Area sec. for Lancashire and the Northwest, is Mitch Gaynor, who lives in Euxton, assisted by myself, Jim Stott

The club caters for anyone, you do not need to have a Robin Hood kitcar, just the passion for kitcars.

Who said there was a Nut behind the wheel?

Well Simon is tightening it anyway!

Now having a wheel arch in the passenger seat for company, Andy wants to make sure that if anything else falls off, at least he'll know!

2B side panels and wheel arch instructions are back
