A MAZDA-BASED TRIUMPH

A lovely replica that has always sadly kept a low-profile is the Replicator RT3, produced in the West Midlands by Tony Griffith. First appearing in early 2010, debuting at that year’s Stafford show, the Ford-based Triumph TR3 pastiche really is a delight. Although the car has always been available, pressures of Tony’s main business has meant it’s always had to take a back-seat, until now.

A new factory has meant much more space and dedicated production areas. The Ford-based version has continued to sell in steady numbers, with Pinto and Zetec-powered examples currently being built.

BOOM, BANG, RATTA-TA-TA

Boom Mat has now launched an ‘XL’ version of the material. It stops interior noise by trapping it between a 4mm thick, aluminium stiffening top skin and a 2mm thick, odourless, butyl rubber inner layer.

New Boom Mat XL has twice the thickness of butyl rubber for even better sound insulation with no asphalt fillers. It boasts worry-free and sag-free adhesion to any interior surface,

either vertical or inverted, and performs in extreme temperatures. The nature of the construction means that only 25-50 per cent is required to damp a panel thus saving weight, material cost and installation time.

Formulated, manufactured and hand poured in the UK by ValetPRO, Beading Marvellous has been aptly named thanks to the impressive water ‘beading’ it produces. In layman’s terms, it affords a vehicle with a long lasting (3-6 month) high-gloss, protective barrier that guards and maintains a paint finish, sheeting and beading water ferociously (just watch the video and the now not so thirsty dog for proof!) as well as halting the More >

Early view of new Wild Cat Cheetah

BIG KITKAT ER, CAT KIT!

The Cheetah, devised by Bill Thomas, was always regarded by the GM fraternity as a ‘Cobra killer’ especially in the USA. Thomas was a handy mechanic and tuner of repute who also successfully drag-raced a Corvette, thus coming to the attention of the factory.

Early view of new Wild Cat Cheetah

Lots of hot Corvettes and Corvairs came out of his workshop and in 1963, despite a ban on American manufacturers supporting motorsport he gained low-key, under-the-radar, factory support to develop his idea for his own Corvette-based car, which became known as the Cheetah.

The car was co-designed by Thomas and his fabricator, More >
