Building your own sports car? It is not as hard as you imagine!
(that's him in the picture) told us about The Constructor's Car Club (CCC) in New Zealand.
According to their web site...
"The Constructors's Car Club was founded in 1988 by a small number of enthusiasts who were interested in building a vehicle either from scratch or from a kit, but were concerned by the rumours of impending legislation and the impact it may have on their hobby.
The club they formed went on to become one of the 10 founding clubs of the Low Volume Vehicle Technical Association (LVVTA), the body entrusted with New Zealand’s modified and custom built vehicle certification system.
25 years on and the Wellington based club has over 160 members, with approximately 40% scattered throughout New Zealand.
