    Was the 196 formerly owned by Jim Busby?

    If so, I spent many hours drooling over it. It was garaged a few doors down from me.

    the best way to describe it is a motorcycle on four wheels, there aren't much to impress you when it comes to brakes, but as long as you are careful and watch for people not paying attention, it is a blast (although very loud)

    Hello there. Does the 196 have an aluminium body? Did you construct the car yourself?

    Hi Kevin,

    The body is alloy. I purchased it already as you see it above. There are several threads about these.
