  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hey George. Congratulations on your new Super 7 purchase. A great looking car. What a great way to start the New Year!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. It's no 7! But I think it's kinda cool looking. Put the Revolutions on and cut the windshield down and it may not be too bad.
  10. Interesting. Does anyone know what that grey gadget is parked next to it?
  11. Awesome car! Maybe I missed it but I see no contact info. Can you post a phone # or an email addy?
  12. That black Superlight looks nice, decent price too. However I can't help but think "somewhere there's a dunebuggy without a steering wheel"
  13. Mr Astro. You first mission at Wirewheel, should you accept. Is check out that BDR powered 7. Providing they still have it when I sell this awsome race car that nobody seems to want!!!
  14. New back on this site. I'm shopping for another 7. What do you mean about "Autocourseinc"?
  15. 1/ The Porsche was headed to the pit lane (Drivers Right) 2/ If Nissan didn't want people to not see them, don't paint your car that stealthy flat black! Didn't they learn anything from LeMans? 3/ I can't watch that car and not think of this: 4/ Call me old fashioned, but I don't want this car to succeed. It just looks wrong to me! The only reason it's fast is, super light weight and no frontal area. 5/ It's got be a bitch to drive. You have to leave a set amount of room with the front so that the rear clips the apex. Plus when passing when you stick the nose in will th
  16. William Check the valve clearance first. If you've got a bent pushrod or valve you'll have increased valve clearance on that valve. Investigate as much as you can to find the problem before pulling stuff apart.
  17. The car is sold. To a gentleman in Texas. Dang! I miss it already. The good news is the sale freed up some dosh so that I can do more racing :driving: Thanks to USA7's

  20. Hi all. I'd like to post my car for sale (Actually I'm kinda bummed to sell my car) But I need to pay up to use the For Sale page. I have no problem with that, but can't find the person responsible for taking care of this. I know I'm setting myself up to have twenty people saying "It's me give me your $20!" Thanks in advance
  21. I can vouch for Tony being a straight up person. He brokered the Seven I bought (I still love it) I paid a fair price for it, he helped with the shipping. Helped me get a seat so that I could fit. We need more Tony's
  22. I'm impressed you found such a good parking spot!!
  23. I've been lucky enough to have raced Pikes Peak '87 '92 '93' 94 for Team Mitsubishi. It's a fantastic event. You're there for the whole week doing practice runs (A third of the hill at a time) and doing qualifying (half the hill) The ONLY time you get to run the whole hill in anger is your one timed run! I didn't get to the point that I could close my eyes and remember the whole run was the third year. The first year I remembered the corners I didn't want to go off on (they all have guard rails now). The second year I remembered each corner as I got to it. By the third year I could close
