Welcome To American Locost!!
Welcome to my web site!
This page is to provide ideas, information and moral support to all you Locost and home built car builders out there in America! In case you don’t know, a locost is a home built Lotus 7 looking car which originally came about due to Ron Champion’s book, “Build Your Own Sportscar for $250 Pounds” (yes, that should be a sign for English currency but I’m totally technologically inept, so bear with me…). This has become known as “The Book” to locost builders throughout the world. I am currently overwhelmed with other responsibilities (work, kids, house rehab, etc.) but am researching and designing my locost build in my head, hoping to oneday be flying around an autocross course in one of my own! Until then, this site is to pass along some of the great info and cool ideas I’ve come across. It’s geared more toward the home builder on a budget than someone starting with a full kit and will cover all kinds of homebuilt cars, not just Lotus 7 -inspired. I’m pretty much tech illiterate so please bear with me while I add more content and figure out how to build this page as I go along! Enjoy!!
Check back often to see what cool stuff I’ve got for locost and home-made car builders!!
