I remember this also, it was Kit Car Magazine around ~1981.
I actually saw the car in the flesh at a show back then.
The guy's name was Alexander Pipe IIRC.

Mike 'the' Pipe was a custom exhaust builder who advertised in various Kit magazines back in the day, he was in my neck of the woods (Wallington / Carshalton, Surrey).
