DrivenToys.com is not a company!

I’m just a guy who loves cars.

Since I was a child, I’ve found myself building, customizing and modifying cars of all kinds.  I’m not independently wealthy, my passion is the pursuit and work involved. DrivenToys.com is the site I use to list my projects after I’ve had the fun of working on them.  Stay tuned and you may see one of my completed projects available for purchase.

JPS Motorsports Speedster

This little guy has been sitting in my collection for a while in California.

This car is a rarity, in that it is registered on it’s early VW Vin in California. It was tube framed by JPS Motorsports and is smog exempt.  It’s quite quick and everything you would expect from one of the last hand crafted coach builders in the world.

The biggest issue with the car is the amount of people that crowd around it. Going to the corner store or gas station can take much longer than expected when you have a crowd of 5-10 people.  Everyone is amazed that you can still purchase a hand-built coach work car, with the amenities of a modern car, but the beauty of a classic.

A new JPS Motorsports Speedster will take around 6-12 months to have built and will start at $39,000.  Why wait?  The registration work has already been complete and it is easily insured or transferred to any US state.

This car is full of options, very quick and fun to drive. I have been tooling around town in it for a couple months and it has exhibited no issues at all. The pictures don’t do it justice. The car is in very good condition with no known mechanical problems and has just over 14500 miles on the odometer since built. It has some minor body scratches (see final 3 photos), exactly what you would expect from such a low mileage car.

The short geared transmission and 2110 cc engine make it a blast to drive
