For sale: Another Latvian 'speed machine'

This unusual aircar with a KMD team race diesel installed has run happily at Buckminster at 85mph without any work having been done on it or any tuning at all, other than a couple of turns of the needle. The damped suspension ensures that it is very stable.

KMD motor finger starts easily with all digits intact to prove it, but moving away from diesels and aircars, hence the sale.

£120 ONO delivery to Buckminster or postage at cost
