It seems the name Haynes Roadster has been used before, in fact it was in use a hunderd years ago. 8-)

32 bhp, wooden wheels and brakes on the rear only. Well, how on earth did they get that through the IVA I wonder ?

I rather like these historic motoring photos, incredible to think that was 100 years ago though http://www.shorpy.com/node/4651

Understandably for a small volume car there dont seem to be many about now but the Iowa car museum apparently has a 1916 Haynes somewhere

Lets try to make sure some photos of our cars survive.

Some interesting stuff there. :)

SVA/IVA was not introduced until the late 90's ( (98 seems to be stuck in my mind.

Prior to that date, one was able to knock up a kit car, submit it for MOT & register it with DVLA.

Those were to good old days before the euro bods had their say. :(

If only it were that simple now. :D :D
