    Where have all...

    ...the old Rodshop and YSR bodies GRP cars gone ? 20 years ago thery were still the staple of shows yet know you rarely see one now? I know steel is far more readily available but where are the old rods that were built back then ?

    Sitting in garages while their owners work out how to register them correctly, instead of on an old Austin 7 or consul logbook?

    Well if they are stuck I'd be interested in buying one at a sensible price . Especialy anything that was first on the road pre 1998 regardless of how it's registered

    I've wondered the same many a time... I know they are unfashionable, but I'd still love one of the more "kit car" type rods that ran on an Essex V6, Cortina front clip, etc. Loved the old blue Coop that did the Street Machine/Philishave tour. For me, would be so much easier to live with than a "period correct" (period adjusted for rose tints and current fashions) example. Sadly, I think a lot of the cheaper ones just ended up parked in council lock ups as they went out of fashion. Tried to buy a '32 Sedan Delivery a few years back, it had been sat on a drive for God knows, flat tyres, cracked gel coat, etc.... promptly disappeared after my enquiry.

    It did seem that at the early Supernats almost every other car was a YSR.
    These days it would appear that the majority are SUVs.

    I built my 'Rodline' '34 coupe around 10 years ago, rover v8, volvo rear, cortina based front, still running it all year round, although the front end went in favour of a drilled beam axle, the rear will be replaced with a '40 banjo next year
