Before I saw this book I had often fantasized about building an exotic car from a kit. I was thinking a replica of a vintage Jaguar or maybe an Excalibur. This book opened my eyes to the many steps that go into contructing a vehicle from a kit. The author shares with us his problems associated with contructing the car. A lot of the problems mentioned never would have crossed my mind if not for reading this book. This is a good book for anyone interested in building a car from a kit. It alerted me to the reality that I needed additional education and tools before I could undertake this challenge.
