Post Rossa fastback
Hi
I've always liked the look of Unipowers and the Deep Sanderson, but they are now worth way too much
I did own a Mk 1 rossa but it went to Germany a quite a few years ago
How about a home made one?

I like it too - were you thinking of a slatted back - they'd need to finish before the boot space - so it'd seal.

How's it hinged, could be hinged to the roof, especially if rhe roof was bonded on, or clamshelled?

I have always struggled with the back of a rossa, Orange suits it, and with your artist impression of the fast back, I like it :!: alot :!:

I think that looks pukka, you've turned it into a swan :shock:

It might be me but it brings the Mustang fastback to mind

Seal the boot off and have an internal boot box ala Unipower gt :wink:

Bond the roof on. Put a catch on the roof, with a release pull in the cockpit. (But the only problem is if you forget to shut it before setting off)

Obviously stirred up a bit of interest, the back end could be more like the Lenham sprites from the sixties

As for buying a Libra, if you have to ask, you don’t understand, for a lot of people modifying the car is a way to vent their creative flair

I'm glad someone else picked up on this comment, I was so sorely tempted but I thought better of it, as I know Bob personally, and thought that what I wanted to post would have been taken wrongly :wink: :D

Thankyou "flattrack500" for putting that better than I would have :wink: :lol: :lol:

I think that looks really smart. It's totally changed the appearance of the whole car. Nice idea!

Who's going to build one of these then?

Love the front end mod as well. Might knock up a skirt/chin spoiler for mine.
