Nah, the scoop is nowhere near that big on the Saturn bonnet. Front top wishbone don't look like Haynes either.

The roll bar looks very home brew, never seen anything like it before.

I've not seen a Robin hood with front wishbones like that.

I'm no expert though.

That's the one , I've no idea if it's a turbo or not, I just can't place the car at all , if you boys don't know it's got to be a home brew for sure

It looks like MK bodywork and the wishbones look home made locost ones.
Can you get a measurement of the width of the wishbones and I will measure my locost wishbone jig for you to see if there the same.

Thanks Danny

where are the reg-plates on that car, at least the rear?

vin-plate and v5c would also (eventually) identify the brand.

looks locost-ish....front wishbones a bit heavy and homemade.

with that kind of damage i would say : brake it...economically not worth repairing it.

Hey guys,

Came to see if I could find an owner and found this tread ! My thread is here
http://bristolkitcarclub.co.uk/smf2/index.php?topic=4257.0

What a co-incidence !


The number plate is f986 gnw. As it was a cat c, there is no V5, however the hpi check came up as :
Make: ----
Model: Goodall
Year: 1989

The frame is not really damaged that much but the welding quality could have been better

chassis thank god wasn't bent (apart from a little snap at the very front which caused the A arm bracket to go into the side and damaged the inner tie rod. A arm bracket is already in place and just needs welding and put an extra plate just for some extra strength.

My only concern at this stage is the nose cone. Do you think it might be MK guys?
