How To Build Your Own Sports Car That Will Actually Run

Aug 17, 2007
Everyone has probably heard or replicars, you know the car kits that you build on your own. It's a way to get a cool and unique looking replica of a more expensive and possibly out of financial reach dream car. A true replicar fan is concerned with building the most accurate and high quality replica available so that one has to really look close to tell that it isn't the original model.

One of the favorites of replica car builders is the Cobra, which is also a favorite of mine. If you build one of these right it will be very hard for the average person to be able to tell that yours isn't the real deal. These clones of the old muscle car have nearly universal appeal and will turn heads everywhere you go.

It can be very rewarding to build a replica of your own. You may want to build one based on a dream car that is just way out of the realm of affordability like a Ferrari or Lamborghini. You may decide that you want to do one as a project to bring you and your son closer together. The cool thing about these kit cars is that they allow you to build a working, drivable vehicle using the body you get from a replicar company and a regular drivetrain and engine that you can get parts for anywhere.

When you build your own sports car it not only gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment but it also gives you a much stronger connection to the car and since you are the one that built it you know what it is capable of and not capable of. When you take your time and build one of these correctly you can actually end up with a higher quality vehicle than one bought from an automaker because of the time and attention to detail that you put into the project.

Another great point is that you can find lots of support both online and off in the replicar community. These people are usually very close nit and open to helping and sharing ideas and tips. There are also an excellent resource for finding parts and asking questions on how to deal with a particular issue you may be having in the building and assembly process.

Building a replicar is a great way to get a really cool looking replica of dream car that may be out of reach. It can also fool a lot of people, you may build one so good that it can't be distinguished from the original, kind of like the relatively new moissanite stones are to diamonds. What are you waiting for, go build your own dream car.
