I want a spaceframe Imp... The bank manager says no, though... :x

Mine would have to be a Maguire rep, though. Gorgeousness in race car form! :P

EDIT - Your Jarvis spaceframe is rather lovely too! :mrgreen:

Lee,I find the easiest way with a photobucket account.
Upload pics to photobucket
Click on the selected photo.
A wee board thing with 4 things in it will drop down.
Click the bottom one,it will go a colour.
Right click,that saves it.
Come back here,click then right click,that inserts the picture.

I would like to take this oppurtunity to thank Lee and he's colleuges for the exceptional high quality of work they carried out on my car, they worked long hours to carry out deadlines. and gave daily reports in high detail of work carried out, also he gave valuable advise on bits and pieces that required attention. Lee will look after all your needs to a very high standard, I will certainly return to him in the future even if it does mean a 1200 mile round trip!! :D :D :D

Often wondered about these, which item belongs to an IMP then?
Not really IMPs at all are they?

Ahh then I can see in your case its ok, but to call a space frame an IMP when it only has a face that has a sort of resemblance is not right is it, bit like fit a Rolls Royce windscreen then it becomes a Rolls Royce.

It's not supposed to be an imp though is it. It's supposed to be a silhouette racer as per "back in the day" of the super saloons. It's supposed to be a bl***y quick race car that bares some sort of resemblance to it's namesake

The Bob Jarvis Stilleto was one of 2 cars built by Ray race cars they had Imp engines in them hewland gearbox
Later the Imp was replaced with a Ford motor and the car went up a couple of classes.
The other Ray stiletto was later converted to a sports car with Vauxhall xe engine to race in the Supersports series late 1990s

Pats car is the one converted to the Supersports car.It was originally built by Mike Law and he ran Pat in the car then Pat bought it.
Later the car was owned by the 2 Imp racers one lived in Billingshurst ( names escape me at present) and they later they converted
the car to the open top sports car with Vauxhall engine for Supersports.
