I've been searching the interweb for an email or website for Chris Farren at Fibreclass but have drawn a blank. Anyone got any details?

Does anyone have any pics of the ccc stiletto driven by Enderby? I cant find any online
Also does anyone know Stephen Brett ?...
I’ve just been reading up on Enderby and his mason stiletto, I’m hoping to drag it out of the shed soon and make a start on it.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum in fact any forum!
ive seen previous post from Graham De Looze regarding the blue /white spaceframe saloon. He says at one time it was Andy Ciakovs? That car has been mine now since 1997 , bought it as a rolling shell from a guy in Stoke on Trent and after much work I started hillclimbing it in 2000. Its morphed quite a bit over the years..long story short...I made a mess of it at landow early this year. Ive heaps of work to sort it out and have been looking for a one piece grp roof and pillars among other bits. I have bought other saloon roof mould and rear screen mould but they have been cut short and are not complete. Will consider stiletto top now that I have to rebuild it. Grateful for any help.

I remember when Tony Bridge brought this car to Ingliston and it blew all the other Imps away in Special saloon > 1000 cc qualifying, got some video of this meeting and took some pics (from my tv with the iphone here) - that Imp was awesome no wonder it became the Drambui imp mk2/3!

Still looking for a spaceframe imp guys. @Colin, thanks for the offer of a new chassis, believe this will be beyond my budget and capabilities. Prefer something with a bit of history, requiring a straightforward restoration. Someone must have something somewhere...

Thanks Colin. I'm assuming it's the same Andy Wilson that's on here? Just dropped him a note via the forum, so hopefully I'll hear more soon. Many thanks, Matthew

Lot of history with this car.....originally built by Brian MacLeod from Alness, and raced many years at Ingliston.

I bit the bullet yesterday and dropped all my panels off to Chris at fibreclass, he’s confident he can replicate my original panels and he’s going to put a coloured gel coat on too. I’ve been looking at my tub and started to realise there’s quite a bit of work to replace the cage and some of the original tub needs welding too but it won’t get done if I don’t get it done!
