IN THE FEBRUARY ISSUE
WHICH KIT CAR?’s February issue contains our usual mix of
kit car material. For starters, Ian Stent made his first ever visit
to 35-year old Autotune. While there, he drove the Ford Escort based
Gemini and Jaguar based Aristocat. Kit cars of the old school, they
no doubt have an appeal all of their own.
Another slightly quirky car this month is the Burton. Of Dutch origin,
it’s a Citroën 2CV based traditional tourer… and
a very convincing one at that. Its professional styling and high
quality make this a surprisingly tempting offering.
Cobra coverage this issue includes Peter Filby’s visit to
Thunder Road Cars, a firm which can seemingly carry out any work
on any Cobra replica. The Magnum that made it to the cover is also
featured in Snake Pit. With Ford 302cu in V8 power (that’s
325bhp), it was every inch the big-inch bad-boy it appears.
Historic correspondent Martyn Morgan Jones took a look at the early
days of Marcos. It’s a fascinating tale of ups and downs and
makes gripping reading. Make sure you don’t miss it!
