yes vince: a replica, but as original as you can make 'em! i don't think originals are road-legal or are they? sandy

The reason for my interest is, back in 1990, I spent a brief 6 months working for a company making ali. bodied C and D replicas. (The last great Classics "Bubble")

A customer would appear with a massive folder with exactly what he wanted it to look like. Even to the bend on the brake pipes. It had to be a very precise replica!

With a 300 + bhp Forward Engineering XK engine they were a bit frisky.
