    Thumbs up

    Hi Peter, I enquired about the possibility of a factory built Dax 427 at DJ Sportscars in early 2006, my cousin had built a SR V8 and now a Dax and it would have been rude to ask him to build another.
    DJ's directed me to Dave Brookes and so I took a train up to Stoke and Dave's completed cars were a testament to his talents and experience, also he was courteous and patient with moi (a non-engineer who spoke with a London accent.)
    If you want something a bit different, Dave will somehow interpret whats required, and suggest/design/fabricate, a rare talent.
    With such a wealth of experience he knows the Dax kit very well, he also loves cars and is a champion of free speech and the freedom of the road.
    I knew he'd build me a lovely Dax but was STUNNED when the car materialised, still love it three years later.
    I didn't think it was too expensive either, furthermore your guarantee is something Dave will honour,this doesn't mean you would have to get it to Stoke if you had a problem, Dave will explain this to you.
    You will not regret having a DB Dax built, go for it!

    I think it's Dave generating some free advertising before christmas , I'm not sure it'll work, people out there probably have the money to buy others a Dax replica as a gift but where are they going to get a sock big enough to fit it in ?

    Hi Peter,

    All Joking aside, Dave does very nice work. You're welcome to come and view my car, Dave hand a hand in the finish and I can't fault the work in anyway, the quality is excellent. Drop me a PM, I'm not that far up the M11 from you.

    Cheers
