THE STORY OF LYNCAR – INCLUDING WILT ‘THE STILT’ CHAMBERLAIN’S ‘SEARCHER 1’ PROJECT 

Most specialist car enthusiasts of today won’t have heard of a company called Lyncar, as they appeared on our radar for a very brief period nearly 30 years ago, but as STEVE HOLE reports there was quite a story behind the business.

Lyncar Engineering was based in Slough, Berkshire and run by a very clever engineer called Martin Slater, born in Windsor in 1936. Back in the Sixties, the motorsport enthusiast had built – and raced – his own Formula Junior and F3 cars.

Lyncar was debuted in kit form at the 1992 National Kit Car Motor Show

Slater’s first car build, the More >

LIBERTY F-6 – IT’S ACE!

Pete Larsen of Seattle-based Liberty Motors has been producing cool three-wheelers for many years. Indeed, his Ace directly inspired the Morgan M3W and has now created the Ace F-6, which is powered by a Honda 1.8-litre engine but not from a Civic Type R but rather a Goldwing motorcycle meaning it is a flat-six unit, so must sound glorious.

Larsen worked closely with designer Pascal Golay of Rhino 3D and the shape is striking to these eyes.

The Goldwing is now up to its sixth version, but Larsen uses the fifth-generation engine and five-speed sequential gearbox. A Haltech ECU keeps things in More >

SANSOM NOT SAMSON AND DEFINITELY NO DELILAH

INTRODUCING SANSOM CAR CARE …

A brand that I am a big fan of is Sansom Car Care and although only established in 2019 just before a global disaster they have made great strides and won lots of friends with the quality of their products.

Not only do their potions and elixirs have great packaging, bright colours and heady scents but most important of all they work beautifully. Several of their range feature in my ‘go-to’ list of products.
