I have been building ‘crazy’ cars since 1984 when I built a 9 foot tall street legal DALEK.
Next in 1990 with a friend, Danny Curtis, I built the IMPRESSED, it started as a Hillman IMP, and finished at 26 inches tall. It was listed in ‘The 1990 Guinness book of records’ as the lowest car in the world.In 1998/9 I built ‘LOWLIFE’ a radically chopped, sectioned and elongated Mini featuring mid-mounted Rover V8 power plant and trick hydraulic suspension . Tarmac to rooftop was 24 inchs.
‘LOWLIFE’ was recognized in the Guinness Book of Records 2001 edition as the lowest street legal car in the world.

In 2002 I had a break from building cars and entered the ‘Robot Wars’ with ‘MR NASTY’.
After spending a fortune and coming home from the ‘war’ with a bag of bits ! I decided to stick to building cars.
