Let's have a roundup of what people sell as replicas these days. High standards? You be the judge.
Tasty Healey with V8 power. Â£20k+ is a lot of cash for something that isn't real, although I'm sure it's faster, more reliable and less rusty than a real one.
Forty grand for this E Type, but it sure is purdy
Â£880,000 for this replica. It really is 880,000 times better than a Sherpley
Can the standard keep climbing ever higher? Errrr, no. Â£21,000 for this Beetle based kit with very visible torsion bar suspension is a travesty
9 grand for this "SS100 replica"? What colour is the sky on your planet, mate?
I tell you what, chief. You'd have been better off sticking with the Metro
I went to the NEC show last autumn and with the prices that 911s fetch nowadays I'm amazed there isn't someone knocking these Covins out. I'd perhaps give the 1.6 CVH engine a swerve and go for narrow instead of wide body, but I reckon you'd be beating the customers off.
