Roderick Meek Many thanks for maintaining an excellenet forum for Challenger owners and other interested parties. I am sad to say that I have managed to sell my car but am delighted to report that it has gone to an enthusiastic new owner who, hopefully will get as much enjoyment from the car as I have had over the last ten years of ownership. Your website generated substantial interest for my car and ultimately produced a buyer. One thing however did become clear in my discussion with interested parties is the general lack of appreciation of these cars. My general feeling it that a lot of enquirers honestly thought that they could acquire a Challenger for a bargain basement kit car price. I can only regard them as foolish or opportunistic to assume that they could buy a fully functioning high performance sports car with classic looks, Jaguar engineering and modern reliablilty for less than £10,000. Just because it has the "tag" replica after it does not necessarily mean inferior. Make no mistake the Challenger is a serious alternative to a Cobra, Healey or Original E Type and is in my opinion, having some experience, a superior car. A wellbuilt Challenger will reward its owner with exclusivety, comfort and exhilarating performance. Treat these cars with some respect after all they are not plywood and fibreglas bolted to a wheel barrow chassis with a Ford engine. You will get what you pay for. But for an expanding family and mortage Ii would not have sold my car, in spite of no longer being an owner I will continue to check out this site and the new Challenger Owners Club site. Thanks again. 27th November 2002

The information listed is mostly related to early sale literature.I need to know the front spring rating, as both of mine have broken! I understand Steven Green designed the suspension. Is there any way of making contact with either him or someone that would know the spring ratings. It won't be just the front ones, if mine was anything to go by! - webmaster 12th August 2002

Hi to all the interested People out there. I am looking for a Challenger Kit and I was so sorry to hear it was no longer build. Is there any chance to restart the production? I would pay 10.000 € to take part on the production. If anyone else is interested in this way, maybe we are able to get it working. Please contact me on heiko@tilebein.de

I am extremely interested in obtaining a challenger. If anyone does decide to build them again, please contact me. I live in Australia and would need to have it shipped. How many serious buyers will it take to make this a viable business opportunity for someone. Im sure we can arrange something by raising enough capital by way of deposits. Keep me in the loop.

I took delivery of Challenger number 306 in late December 1991, which may be one of the last to come out of the factory in Scotland, unless anyone knows any different. The car is still only partly built and I am considering selling it. Any sensible offer considered. Please email for further information

I have been building a Challenger for some time now, but I am getting desperate for a hood frame.
Does anyone know where the hood frames were made when the car was in production.

In mid 1990 I visited the Corby factory with check book in hand after many calls and discussions drove a custommer car (Sorry Dereck) as a demonstrator(JAG...S the door latch was broken at the time and I wa duly hooked. I paid my deposit and looked forward to recieving my rolling chasis 6 Months latter. Unfortunatley I had to back out as the Construction Industry floundered and I was unable to forfill my part of the deal. At the time I was very impressed with the Factory abeit small, complete cars were stacked on the walls awaiting delivery. Im would still love oneeven though I have wife and kids which i didnt have when I was originaly interested. Give the interest of the site, Greg other and may be my self should be able to do some thing be it on a limmited basis. Moulds should not stop the show and if I remember correctley the chasis jig was based on a triumph herald. Gentlemen, it just needs enough people interested which there is, a good product which is irefutable, and some coviction and enthusiasm. Come on lets get to gether and talk!!! Suggested date 29/6/02 Amesbury Wiltshire. Give me a call if you are interested on 07801 1944 83 FX 01980 626 711

Jack Somer A challenger (wildcat) is currently being offered at Bob's Classics in California for US$15900, a lot considering the current etype prices. Make no mistake - a Wildcat is NOT a Challenger! (Some would say) the Wildcat was never considered a true replica - webmaster

A real tragedy that this outstanding replica kit is no longer in production, especially now, as all the major manufacturers are going for a "retro" look. Please, someone, rescue this project and take an order from me for the first off the production line!

I have been surprised by the number of emails I have received since contacting the site last. As none of the originators, for reasons best known to themselves, have bothered to answer e-mails or requests for info, then if the interest continues then I will take up the 'Challenge' no pun intended.
