  1. I registered the Birkin in Wa. with no paperwork troubles, however due to pandemic, I did have to wait a couple months for an appointment at the State Patrol VIN inspection lane. The DOL agent required a VIN inspection to complete the process. The car was from Calif as a 1964 SPCN Birkin S3 with a 2002 Ford engine. The WSP inspector only looked at the VIN labels and matching number plate on the frame and did not delve into construction or safety items at all. Interestingly the Yr Make and Model all changed on my title which now shows as a 2003 yr, KITV make, 1964 LOTUS model with Roadster body style and 1100 lbs curb weight. Good luck with your Brunton and hope to see you out there sometime!
  2. It's been a few years since I've been that way. The Forest Service website says that it's open with dips and potholes to negotiate! Forest Road 25 Can't go next weekend but maybe soon after. Want to go on a blat, John? Anyone else?
  3. Mt Rainier was nice. I did it twice! Anybody wanna go for a ride? Let's set something up! Mt Rainier Drive 360 video
  4. How Seattle-ish are you? I drive by there all the time! I'd enjoy comparing notes with a Caterham build. These pretend cars are a blast, you can have a spin in mine!
  5. I've put over 2000 miles on Eggsy locally in the last month. Only one 7 seen and it wasn't even a cheesy kit replica. I think next week a ccw loop around Mt Ranier. Stevens canyon road and hwy 123 are pretty bitchin this time of year. Anybody wanna go? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
  6. C'mon guys! I've only seen one other 7 since owning one. Today: Driving up the waterfront from Ruston to Shoreline then figure 8 lake Washington back South Plans are subject to changes. Is there anyone else nearby blatting?

    Went to my local dyno for a baseline horsepower reading. The nice car guys at the shop were jazzed to see something different than a Honda! Four pulls all did 150. Shout Out to Rich-Tuned Motorsports in Lakewood, Thanks! Dyno.compressed.mp4
  8. Looks like a half-ton of fun! Let me know if you'd like to cross paths toward the South Sound!
  9. I'm looking forward to seeing another green one in the neighborhood sometime! I really need to learn the acronyms like IVA and PBC lol! Cheers and good luck!

    Getting a State Patrol appointment for VIN inspection is a real nuisance with the Covid delays these days but finally got it done. They have deemed Eggsy to be Yr Make: 2003 KitV, Model: 1964 Lotus. Weird that they took off the Birkin make and I think it looks more like a 67 but I'm not complaining...not a word about bumpers or high-mounted brake lights. Thankful that the hoops weren't as bad as many that I read about here. Happy to have it all legally transferred and registered.
  12. Bump! Eggsy and me are ready to meet up with any other Pac NW Se7ens!

    Less than a week to go for the State Patrol VIN inspection and I've been getting more familiar with Eggsy. The Autocross was a great way to learn to drive and shake-down the rust from all those years of storage. I've entered into another event in Bremerton on Monday and have been making Eggsy more reliable and race-ready. It was nice to see Al from Chelan in another Birkin and I'm copying a couple things I saw on his car. First was to remove the spare tire for several lbs savings then I drilled new holes in the steering arm to quicken it up, new fuel filter to hopefully help a left-turn starvation feel and replaced the 15 year-old Avon tires with a new set from Toyo.
