Post Hello! - Newbie in Buckinghamshire
Hello all

I am new to the Forum so I thought I would introduce myself.

I am new to GTMs. My previous kit car build was a 1.8 K-series powered Sylva Fury and before that a xflow-powered Caterham 7. Other cars include the usual midgets / spitfires but have always loved lightweight fiberglass sportscars, particularly the little GTMs - the Libra is still in my wishlist. (one day..!)

I am intrigued by the Coupe though - to this extent I am looking for a GTM coupe that is needing a bit of TLC (and at a later stage an engine conversion - possibly a Honda unit or one of the modern lightweight twincams). But for now its a case of learning more and listening to the knowledge and wisdom of existing owners !

So my thanks in advance and I look forward to the discussions on the forum.

cheers

Richard

Welcome! You should get plenty of advice to help in your quest and with the project when you find one. There is at least one Honda powered coupe in this community.

Good grief - didn't realise the Coupe could take so many engines.

The Honda b16s seem very pricey these days, but the Toyota t-sport engines are pretty cheap and powerful.

Failing that a left field choice - Fiat 1.4 16v / 6 speed gearbox is a great engine and largely overlooked. Turbo versions too..

The new owner tried to cross breed it with a tree is what I heard.

I'm not too sure he was very successful :cry:
