    Caterham
  1. Maybe I should have been more clear. Has anyone ever modified a 7 that is Left Hand Drive to make it Right Hand Drive? I'm thinking of moving back to the UK and I love my current Caterham which is LHD
  2. I think I already know the answer. But has anyone ever changed a LHD 7 over to RHD?
  3. Congratulations on your purchase. Ultralight is IMHO the only 7 variant that's possibly better than a Caterham. As far as registration is concerned SB100 has become tricky in California as I'm sure you've read. But I think not being a "Caterham" might work in your favor. SB100 is going to take you some time and it's kind of a pain, but if you're patient it's doable Since you mentioned Topanga I'm going to assume you're in the LA area. I recommend you use the Thousand Oaks DMV. They have a reputation for being hip to SB100. Please keep us all up
  4. Anywhere from next day to never! Sorry mate
  5. The unfortunate thing is it seems that since Covid the CARB has got involved and put the kibosh on Caterhams. There are many 7's in California trying to get registered under SB100 (myself included) and it's just not happening. Please prove me wrong
  6. KnifeySpoony. Good luck with your SB100. It's not been good for Caterhams in California post Covid. It seems to go fine until you get to the Referee Station visit. We're all puling for you. Please update us on your experiences.
  7. I've not seen anything in writing about "new rules" I have heard that there was an issue with companies scooping up SB100 sequence numbers. Not sure how much truth there is to that.
  8. Tom. That's great! You got someone to talk to. If you don't mind sharing the number that would be great. Please keep us posted on how things go
  9. The weird thing is, I've heard lots of people being told stuff by DMV or BAR but nothing seems to be in writing! My understanding of SB100 is: 1/ The car is sold as a kit. 2/ The engine is sold separately. 3/ The kit is built and the engine is installed. I don't see anywhere where it says you can't install the same engine in all the kits. I don't see where it says you can't pay someone to build the kit! Apparently Caterham has also come under scrutiny because it sells complete cars in England. I think one of the situations that stirred this up is
  10. Since I'm presently one of the people caught up in the California SB100 clusterf*ck! A thought crossed my mind. My daughter is a student at Portland State University. She will be going back to in person classes in September and will have a Portland address. She already has an Oregon drivers license. I'm thinking of "giving" the car to her (she's going to get it when I die) and registering it in Oregon. Has anyone here registered a Caterham in Oregon and what's involved? Cheers John Norris
  11. Here's my story. I bought my first Caterham in 2009 it was a 91 from Michigan. I registered it in California through SB100, but when the economy slowed down I had to sell it in 2012. In 2018 I retired and bought my second Caterham, a 2001 with a Zetec. The car of my dreams! It was already registered in California, but as a "Caterham" not "SPCNS" as it should. The problem with that is it required smog test every two years. Obviously that was not going to work. But I loved the car and have done SB100 before so I set about getting it registered correctly. I live near the T
  12. Hey George. Congratulations on your new Super 7 purchase. A great looking car. What a great way to start the New Year!
  13. It's surely a nice car! Whoever wins this is going to enjoy it. I was wondering about a solid axle car with a 5 speed? I thought they all had 4 speeds
  14. Since Croc is out on the North Sea (jealous) This just popped up on Fleabay. Interested to hear what you'all think. Did Caterham make a '67? Windshield looks odd. Am I the only person who thinks that's Derek Bell? https://www.ebay.com/itm/283575508222?ul_noapp=true
  15. Lotus 7 S2 - seen this car at Owl Head museum once when I was there https://maine.craigslist.org/cto/d/s...938383194.html I want to know what size wheels and tires it has? I love the "steamroller" look of the front!
