Something has come up, and it is a bit too good to pass up, so Mrs groovy was duly consulted, and it seems mini groovy #1 is about to get her first car (only 3 years before she can drive lol).

It's green. It will be A series powered (needs an engine and box). It's rear engined, and rear wheel drive.....

The idea will be to collect it on the Tuesday after the BH weekend, then find an A series engine, and then teach the kids how to rebuild a car by making them do it 🤣 with supervision of course. Then minigroovy1 will be able to use it for production car trials and autotests etc. Happy days!

One of those GTM kit car things? I forget all the possibles...

It is a kit car thing, but not one of those.... There are lots of possibilities. BUT there were only 12 of these made in the 90s

I've never heard of them.

Done a little research, 6? built.

Someone even stole one once. Whats the World coming to?

Good luck, you may need it.

So 1 in 6 of all Hollier Mosquitos have been stolen?

Must be a record? Beats 1980s Cosworths and Nova SRs?

There's a bit more to it.

Someone didn't pay the garage bill, so the garage sold the car on ebay. allegedly 

Owner reported it stolen, again allegedly.

What do I know? I only ever built 2 cars with my name on.

I'm 4 behind Hollier.@Bfgis the kit car manufacturer record holder on here iirc.

You guys make me chuckle 🤣

12 built in total by Chris, this being number 5 it seems. Bought it from the man himself. He's a very lovely chap, and gave me shedloafs of paperwork and history with it. There is much to do before November, including picking up an engine tomorrow. 

Oh, and poo count still zero 😱🤣
