This site describes the construction of a home built, mid-engined car. First conceived in 1999 and inspired by cars such as the NCF Blitz and Onyx Tomcat. I finally began work this year(2005) with a friend, who is an Aircraft Engineer. Why Mistrale? Well, the author of 'A Year in Provence', described the Mistral as a "brutal, exhausting wind that can blow the ears off a donkey" - appropriate for a car with no roof, sides or windscreen. An 'e' was added as others have already used 'Mistral'
