Nice to meet everyone at the weekend, hope you all enjoyed it. Excellent owners club turnout. Good to talk to visitors from Sweden, Belgium and Holland.
Thanks to this show we now have customers over the water in Belgium and the Isle of Wight.
Thanks to Den Tanner and the crew for doing a great job.
Exeter next then, mind you I wont be camping!
Anyone got any photos to share?

Yes and no......., I undestand it says Vindicator F4, but my comment was more relating to the design than the manufacturer.....

A plane on wheels, or a rocket with seats......biggrin

It's been said it was commissioned by a customer.

It was indeed a commission from a man who had a dream from a young age to build an aircraft style car and Vindicator pulled it off for him. That makes John at Vindicator a dream maker. Glad to see eccentricity is still alive and kicking.

Figures banded around were £400 for the steering rack Glass for cockpit runnig into thousands and estimated total kit cost around £40K

Dont think Ill be having one in the near future

If I had that money and was allowed a 2 seater Id have a factory built Murtaya with silly BHP engine

But not allowed a 2 seater so Ill have to stick with the Sprint Family the 4 seat "7" as someone loosely called it ahem

Oh and what a fantastic car the Sprint Family is!! So versatile for a family of 4 to take a day out. Also with the possiblity of a track car too. 'The possibilties are endless'.

The F4 is truely an animal and a dream come true for the guy with the money. If someone of his age could have a grin like a little kid at Christmas.......

Hmmm. Must remember not to grin so much whilst out in the car.
