The Scottish Kit Car Club was formed by a small group of enthusiasts In 1985 but really took off after the first Scottish kit car show at Ingliston In 1992
The club currently has about 130 members with more than half having kits on the road. While most members have either built or are currently building a kit, some owners are owner drivers who have bought their kit from a builder who wants to go on and build another kit.
Members cars cover the whole range of car styles and donor vehicles. Kits usually consist of a chassis and body kit and can range from very basic to totally complete and from refurbished to totally new parts. Nowadays bodywork is usually fibre-glass but can be aluminium or a mixture of both. Car construction can take anything from two weeks to several years depending on the level of kit, the experience of the builders and their motivation. Members work in a variety of working conditions, some of them far from ideal.
At present the club meets on the last Monday of every month at the Grangemouth Rugby Club and the second Wednesday of the month at Cotton Mill Crosshouse both for an 8pm start.
