Enthusiasts' homepages in the USA & Canada.

Welcome to the links to websites for kit car enthusiasts' homepages in the USA & Canada.

These websites are a great source of information.

For newcomers to the kit car scene, reading a build diary can help show what is involved in putting together a kit car.

Some have hundreds of photographs, extensive cost breakdowns, information about problems and pitfalls and articles about how their finished car drives.
