NG Kit Car
Why build a Kit Car?
Some years ago I saw an advert for NG cars in Practical Motorist and
immediately fell in love with the flowing lines and classic style. From then I
harboured a desire to build one. The thought of owning a vehicle so
unusual and the satisfaction of having built it myself are the two things which
fuelled my desire.
(The background to the madness!)
I started visiting NG's web site
and, after my work circumstances changed, I began to believe in the possibility
of attempting the project. After swapping e-mails with the man who ran NG at
the time, John, I dragged my wife off with our caravan at the end of October
2000 to Surrey so that we could visit the company which was then situated in
Epsom. After what must have been the windiest night of the year, we arrived at
NG to be shown the demonstrator cars.
I fell in love with the TF model all over again as we talked about the
practicalities of building one. I had only seen pictures up to this time but
now I could see the superb quality and finish in the flesh. The only niggle at
the back of my mind was how on earth would I persuade, cajole or otherwise
press-gang my beloved into thinking it was a good idea!
Then John offered me a ride. I was surprised at the comfortable springing Ė not
at all choppy, as I had expected. With sporty performance it was tremendous fun
(even though it was a little windy) and it was impossible not to grin from ear
to ear. Then John offered my wife a ride and she came back with a big smile
too. From then on, she presumed I would be building one so I didnít have to
convince her after all!
