Just when I thought I did not have enough on my plate I have added even more. Let me introduce www.fiberclassics.org . I bet you are wondering why I needed to create something new. Trust me I have a really good reason behind it, even if it only makes sense to me.

Since the beginning of the internet I have watched countless websites dealing with specialty cars, handcrafted cars, and kit cars come and go. Fan sites, sale sites, forums, yahoo groups, and the list goes on. At one time many of these sites contained valuable info on specific brands, parts, publications, etc. Of all the websites that used to be around very few of them remain, and most of the ones that are still around have not been updated in many years.

My goal in keeping price of his toys running is to show people what is out there still for these great cars. I like to say we are the lighter side of kit cars. We find kit cars for sale scattered on the internet or submitted by readers and post about them. Sometimes we write good things about the car, and sometimes we write bad. But we do our best to keep these great cars in the spotlight.

BUT what I have always stayed away from is getting to much into the history of the cars. I occasionally write about certain companies and they cars they created but it is usually brief. This is where the new website comes in.

The goal is to create more of an archive if you will. A place where you can find more detailed history about “Handcrafted Cars” from the 1960s-1980s. Contained in the pages there will be info about the company, advertisements, photos, and when available build manuals.

In addition there is a fully functional vehicle registry . This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. This is open to any “Handcrafted” car from the 1960s-1980s. As of this post we have already had 27 vehicles uploaded from all over the country and even Canada. It is our hope that people will use this so we can get a better idea of what is left out there for these great cars. Long term we would love to put together a car show that the community has not seen in the USA since the 1980s.

Now just like with price of his toys we cant do any of this without your help. If you are fascinated by the history of handcrafted cars and would like to join the team as a researcher/writer please let me know. I could certainly use all the help I can get.

Also if you have any obscure literature you would like to donate or even just scan for us you can email us.

Again the website is www.fiberclassics.org
