    In Co Kerry, that particular example was based on Vauxhall/Opel running gear I think.

    Any chance you could get a few pictures of it. Thanks

    Does anyone know where the TMC Costin spotted in Kerry is now?

    He didn't make them but a factory in Wexford did to his spec.

    The car was designed by Frank Costin and built in Wexford by the Thompson brothers, Peter, Sean and Val.
    The Thompsons were related to Professor Seamus Timoney who designed and built the Timoney Armoured Personnel Carriers and Fire Engines in Adtec Teo, Gibbstown, Co. Meath.
    The Thompsons and Frank Costin all worked for Timoney for years.

    Yep - Castlebridge, Co. Wexford. Saw one of their own ones last year - was getting some bodywork done on a car and theirs was in for a respray. Man, they're bare bones cars but I'd still love to have one.

    Mad looking things in race trim. I remember them as an iconic niche car - Stephen Roche on the Late Late Show promoting them - but when I see all the other Lotus 6 kit cars now, there are prettier. And I'd still love one.
