THE BUFFY-PORSON: A Car You Can Build and Drive

With just a little help from an ""Older Person"" (but not too much because ""grownups often have very short attention spans"") a reasonably coordinated and patient kid could use these plans to build his own downhill racer. The Buffy-Porson is a wood, soapbox-type racer with rope-rigged steering and brakes, but what makes it special is the styling (including hood strap, exhaust and spare tire) which is modeled after the sleek 1934 MG. Mike and Peter Stevenson are the father-son team who designed and built the original Buffy-Porson; their careful, prideful approach should inspire other car nuts to new heights.
