wow upto 24 Roadsters in progress with 2 more starting shortly, plus the original 5,

best order some more plaques Slim

some of us that were at the Stoneleigh kit car show vowed to have our cars there next year so hopefully there should be at least 10 Roadsters on display in 2010, maybe even more, would also be nice to see the cars currently being built overseas at the show.

Would I still qualify if I built a live axle roadster?

Both sierra's and cortina's are scarce over here and escorts just don't exsist. Waiting on finding my donor before I decide exactly which way it goes.

(Budget says the cheapest donor I can find)

on a serious note ...

is everyone happy with the suggestions that have been put forward so far ?
any other suggestions welcomed , as this is a forum , its open for discussion, is this plaque idea something that would be wanted by forum members?

Well ill be building by friday if all goes to plan, however i disagree with the idea of plaques as i firstly feel that we may never know if people have built roadsters using this book and never saying a word on these forums, so we cant say for sure that mine is the x number roadster built as we cant be sure. Then we come to the point that many people who again have never been on these forums may have bought the book and used the book as a guide to building their car and not actually building it to te letter so to what extent can we call one of the car a haynes roadster. The idea of having plaques is actually quite good, but it wont be practical and may never be 100% correct.

Perhaps it can be known as the Haynes forum plaque? I would find it difficult to believe that someone had bought the book and started building and not stumbled across this site.
"Merchandise" for this forum at present appears to be non-existent.
There are 1000 forum members. Plenty of people who join car clubs etc don't mind stumping up for stickers, badges, hats etc. I can't see how a couple of quid for an engraved plaque is any different? Its not as though it will add any value to the car.


By the way, yes, that is 2 - and I will give away the first 5 for free!

Im all for the idea. However i do know someone who has nearly finished his chassis but never knew about this forum. I've suggested he become a member though.
