Just as we closed the proverbial shutters for the week, we heard that the Crendon CR427 project has been taken over by Anthony Hale of Absolute Horsepower, a man well-known for building top quality Cobra replicas over the years including AKs and the UK-spec Factory Five 65 Roadsters that came here a few years back.

The Crendon marque was founded by the gentleman that is John Kerr way back in the late eighties after he’d built a particularly fine Southern Roadcraft SRV8 and then decided to set-up his own company, Crendon Replicas based in Aylesbury.

Get out and get under with these terrific, heavy duty plastic car ramps (part number 6793) and the super-practical under car body board (part number 6680), both designed to make life a little easier when accessing areas under the front or rear of your car.

The plastic car ramps have a 2.5 tonne capacity and raise the car by 158mm (6.25 inches) which gives an easy working height under the car. The generous 254mm (10 inches) width means even wide wheels can be accommodated. Although light in weight, the ramps are super stable and will hold the weight of the car More >



Not content with releasing one new Quick Lift Jack, B-G Racing has just released a range of four different ones each designed for a particular form of racing.

The four products are ‘Rally Car’, ‘Track Saloon Car’, ‘Long Formula’ and ‘Small Formula’.

All the jacks are produced from high-grade mild steel with a durable silver grey powdercoated finish for longevity. Design detail includes an extra-long, detachable, shaped handle for excellent leverage and More >


Over in the USA the replica movement got a serious boost when the ‘Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act of 2015’ part of the far-reaching Highway Construction Bill, which came into force just over a year ago.

In a nutshell it means that low volume manufacturers in the USA can take advantage of the provision that allows them to build up to 325 replicas a year subject to federal regulatory oversight focussing on cars that are now over 25-years old.

One such manufacturer on a mission to make ‘old cars better’ is Orlando, Florida-based Revology Cars, who make three delicious-looking takes on More >


New car care brand, Smart Polish Pro has a very cool range of products that not only look and smell nice but actually go above and beyond the call of duty and make a real difference to your car’s appearance.

One that really impressed me is their Waterless Wash & Wax product that has been chemically-engineered to create a hydrophobic surface layer (‘beads’ basically!) on your bodywork that repels water for weeks at a time.

As it’s a waterless polish it is at its best without er, water. These types of polishes are superb if you don’t have access to a pressure More >



DEI has come up with an easy way to tidy up those wires and hoses that come with added accessories – and there’s no need to disconnect them to sort out the problem, either.

Their Easy Loom sleeves offer a clean classy way to protect exposed wires, hoses and cables and the split design makes it easy to install over existing wiring looms. It comes in various diameters allowing for any number of new wires to be grouped with the existing loom. The finished result looks like a factory-installed loom and gives no clue to the new wiring that is housed More >

The products have a ten-year life. So, if your extinguisher has passed this period, it can no longer be serviced.
