  1. Anyone up for Carlisle? May 20th?

    Hey crew - it's been years since I've owned a Sterling and don't even recognize a lot of the current posters. However, I am headed to Carlisle and was wondering if Rick, Warren or anyone else might be there this year. I always like to attend when I can, although I'll be without a kit car again...
  2. Kit's at Carlisle is no longer?

    Hey all- So I've recently been working on my non-Sterling kit. I had zero cash over the summer, then finally had some money come in right as it got too cold to work on a car outdoors. However, I am/was still sticking to my goal of trying to get my car in running shape by Kits at Carlisle. But...

  4. You've got to be kidding me

    It's rare when you come across a sterling in the wild. It's even more shocking when it's less than a block from your own house!!! I've actually walked down this street a couple times and never seen it before now. Will try to get in touch with the owner to get the VIN for the registry...
  5. Dash from 92 prelude

    I spent some time in a you-pull-it yard the other day and had a look inside a 92 Prelude. The dash was quite interesting. There was a nice center console which attached to the dash board at the heater controls. The heater controls were very compact and were one unit with the vents (space...

    I know a few people have mentioned that they 'shop' while driving around. Meaning that you check out each car you pass to analyze what parts from it might look good on your project cars. I do this to the point of being unsafe. :-O Spending some time overseas, it's given me a whole new store...

  9. Using an MR2 as a donor

    Hello all, For over a decade I've played with the idea of using an MR2 as a donor for the Sterling. Having no car to work with, it's just all been hypothetical. Obviously, the MR2 is a monocoque chassis, so when you strip off the roof, some sort of custom chassis would need to be built...
  10. Squared off sterling?

    You read the title and thought Sovran, didn't you? Not quite. Before I get to the photo, I'll introduce myself. At the age of about 11 (this would be about 1982), I picked up a copy of kit car magazine and it had a Sterling on the cover. That very car turned me in to a car guy and my...
