Doh! Looks like great minds think alike. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Because the Devin is mounted on a MGA frame I posted this link in the MG section.

Opps! Different car altogether, than the one I posted... Even more strang!

The Devin is kind of cool isn't it?

Really cool. Saw one a few weeks ago in Flemington, NJ. First one I had seen since 1964. The NJ one was Corvair powered and really cool too but finished and driving.

Since we are talking about some rare oddball kit-type cars, here a competitor to the Devin.
Any guesses what it is? (there is a "Subaru" sticker on it, but it's obviously not a Subaru!)

To be honest, I saw this car at an event that I was running and had no idea what it was. I walked up to the owner and he told me.

Is that a Kellison? (The original "K" car.) A friend had one in the '60s, and that looks similar.

Bingo! Correct! (it's a Kellison J3R)
The owner told me that he thought that the fiberglass body was actually made by Chris-Craft. It had a Chevy small-block in it.

Yes a Kellison..........A chap hill climbed and raced one in the mid sixties when my father raced............Being a kid growing up at the race tracks i recall all kinds of unusual cars............I do recall the car was not very fast but then again the driver ran at the back in other cars also

I was looking through some pictures and found this Devin that I snapped at the 2003 NHIS Vintage Festival in New Hampshire:

Nial,
That Kellison is ABSOLUTELY tiny... either that or it's Bugeye58 driving it! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif It makes my Ginetta look big - he's got a heck of a roll cage on it too. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
