:D
I want pictures! Cheetah is just one of my all time favorite looking cars. ...and I might have a BMW E39 540i donor in a couple of years. ...and hopefully by then the Locost and the Europa are all squared away and I will be needing a new project.
:cheers:

Those ballscrews look pretty wimpy, I assume this isn't intended to be a high speed machine and you are just doing foam parts "for fun"

+1 Cheetah

Bye the way, a company has been formed to do a continuation of the series. They have full permissions and a license to build them. Don't know if they're using the original tooling, but they say they have all the specs and drawings. Not that many were built in the 60s, but here is the website for the continuation cars:

+1 Cheetah.

One of my all-time favourite cars too.

The entire Bill Thomas cheetah continuation company was up for sale on eBay a while back - I don't know how that panned out. Not a financial move I wanted to take on.

Another vote for the cheetah. It was my favorite of my HO slot cars when I was a kid (whatever happened to them I'll never know!) :(
