This is the kit I'm looking at. They're out of VIC and the kit is a copy of the Westfields which are very popular world wide. My preliminary budget comes to a few cents under $30k which in reality means about $40k.

the setup the company you posted a youtube link to who do the inboard horizontal susspension sounds interesting, even if its just coz you coudln't do that on many other cars! IRS is another thing which only some kits have yeah? going with the orginal width or one you can actully near fit in would be another tough decision...
what engine are you thinking of going with? (just saw you'd replied in the time i wrote this - last time i talked to my bro about it he was saying tou can't build 4age ones anymore due to emissions?)
i hope to one day convince my brother and dad to buy one, but i do question if i should just get one now or not...alot

People are starting to use the 1ZZ and 2ZZ engines. A few F20C's which are becoming popular as the half cuts start to pop up and there are some bike engines used as well.

Don't let all that hard work go down the drain. Awesome car.
I see too many people do up Zeds, run low on cash towards the end of the project and give it away. I was in the same boat but am glad I hung onto mine. To all you Zed people get out there drive your car and enjoy it. don't keep it in the garage needing work all the time otherwise you will lose interest.
Just some advise from an old Zedman who needs some company on these drives.
too true. i often thought of selling mine when it was running rough. now that it's all good and driving often i wouldn't dream of selling.
tidy looking car. need bigger pics.
Found this in another post

Today I went for a drive in a clubbie. Had no windscreen so I got bashed about by the wind. Had no roof so I got a bit sunburnt. Had very little room so I was squashed and stiff when I got out. Had an old stock 4A-GE that felt like my dads car on the straight. But when we got to the twisties and the sign was saying 55km/h and we were doing somewhere over 100 I first shat myself and then relaxed with a grin as I felt the car grip the road like a fat kid gripping a chocolate. These things are a drivers car. Me like. Me want.

it would cost someone more than that to get it to the finish yours is in
saying that i would buy it if i had the cash
would you consider a 10% down payment a a $5000 payment over the next 7.2 years ?

Oh, buy this months RACE magazine with a pic of a V8 Escort on the cover, has an article called "clubbie corner" and they chat about the bad CD figure of these cars. Apparently a Hummer H2 has a better drag co-efficent! He builds his own streamlined body and it looks awesome..
