Built in 1986 would you believe - or at least first measured at the Babbacombe Nationals in 1986
Built by Adrian Summers of Christchurch - he bought a Goodwin kit, took the measurements, threw away the materials (not good enough) and did it properly - bit of a perfectionist. He went on to build his own AC Cobra, a man of taste!
The Sting used to carry a lot of lead - I wonder if it still should
