Sterling Kit Car
Own this exotic hand-built fiberglass kit car... LOOK LIKE A ROCK STAR, AND FEEL LIKE MARIO ANDRETTI!
I built my Sterling Kit Car in 1977 while living in northern California. I rebuilt and upgraded the 1970 VW chassis, installed a rebuilt 1972 Super Beetle engine. The car currently has 35,212 miles on it. Most of the miles were put on the car in Northern California, from 1977 to 1984. Due to a company relocation, I moved to southern California in 1984 to 1994. In Orange County, I added only a few more miles on the car. I moved to Upstate NY in 1994, due to another company relocation. After arriving in Upstate NY, I drove the car only once in my neighborhood to make sure everything was ok from the move (the car was shipped in a moving van). I never re-registered the car with NY State, so the car has been in my garage since 1994.
