  1. Solved 2/3 of the fit issue (maybe only a half depending on how you count) by adjusting the accelerator and brake pedals. Now my right leg has plenty of room. Clutch cable was not adjustable up top by the pedal. I'm assuming the the adjustment for it is inside the rubber boot down by the clutch.

  2. Good tips. I ordered the battery. Kitcat's comment pushed me over the edge to get a lithium battery. My previous thinking was to stay with PC680 because 1) it's more or less original (totally irrational, I know, but hey, the whole car is totally irrational) 2) fear of the unknown and 3) with this car I'm trying to resist the temptation to continuously "improve it" and be disciplined to "leave well enough alone".

My dad was in the hard wood lumber business, so he thought the combo of English style and wooden frame was the ultimate. My acquaintance referenced the Seven as an ultimate sports car and I’ve held that opinion ever since. 30 years ago my wife gave me a model Seven for my birthday. When a car looking almost exactly like the model came available, she encouraged me to get the real thing and I could not re
