How to Build a Cheap Sports Car, Paperback Book

How to Build a Cheap Sports Car Paperback

Part of the Motorbooks Workshop series


The dream of building a sports car with one's own hands is nearly universal among automotive enthusiasts.

This book tells the story of one man who actually did it - and did it for cheap!

For roughly 20 percent of the cost of a Caterham Lotus Seven replica (think about $7,000), Keith Tanner built his own Seven-like sports car that is faster than just about anything else on the road. "How To Build a Cheap Sports Car" entertains the reader as they watch a car being built.

The reader shares in the trials and tribulations of turning a bare frame and wrecked Miata into a little racetrack demon.

Tanner's direct writing style and commonsense approach to the challenges of the build make for an enjoyable and informative read.
