There's likely some crossover between GRM and LocostUSA, but I hadn't seen this one posted yet here.

Quoted from LocostUSA

Hey gang,
I'm thinking of selling the Meerkat project. I know I'll kick myself for doing this, but there is a solid reason that I'll share in the next couple of weeks.

Anyway,
Alan Bertwhistle's Meerkat project I picked up last fall in Florida.
Mid engine using 1st gen Toyota MR2 donor.
Engine, trans, knuckles, steering, brakes, etc all from the MR2
Completed space frame chassis with steering, and mounts all sorted. Some work still needed on rear suspension and shocks

Extreeeeeeemly cool fiberglass body that Alan created from nothing but imagination
Most of the body molds. There were a few bits we couldn't locate

A couple of boxes of bits and bobs (Alan's words) pulled from the MR2 and lord knows what else he dropped in there.
Hundreds of drawings and pics

I won't kid you, this is a project. There's some welding, plenty of plumbing, wiring, fiberglass work,...; well basically everything to be done.

Asking $1500 for everything as it sits in my garage right now.

Greensboro, NC...in case you were wondering (now fighting the urge to spend the rest of the afternoon on the locust forum)

Why don't I just buy all the things?

I thought that is your plan!
