I do like your style....I really do...  :classic_laugh:

 

We have a single car garage at the house. 

 

Or as I like to call it. 7 + 2 bikes :classic_biggrin:

I have tried to get in contact with this owner/seller as I do see a windshield in the pictures and other parts but had no luck.

 

 

The trick with reaching a seller after auction or actually anyone on Bringatrailer is to find an auction where they commented and simply add a post to the end with a @NAME  [swap in their profile name] and say you are trying to make contact and provide your email.   Most users have it set to get an email if they get an attribution in a Bringatrailer post.  It may just work this time for you.

Another new guy here. Do you know this car?
My brother in law passed away last summer and I have had the good fortune to inherit his Birkin S3. He was another 'Dan' from Sebastopol Ca. and could have been a member here or in similar clubs. The car was built by Birkinsport (ser#000002) in Vacaville CA and I've been trying to learn more about that company and this car's history.
It appears that the car has not been driven in a few years but only needed a new battery and fresh gas to get running again. I've adjusted the pedals to almost fit my feet and found the defective brake light switch down by the differential, weird. There are 19.5k miles on the odometer and I've added only about 50 so far. I've made great strides in completing the title transfer by securing an appointment for a State Patrol VIN inspection the first week June. I'll probably get a trip permit or two if I can't resist taking it out of the neighborhood for a spin before then. Mt Rainier is looking better and better every day!
I'm another old Dan and have lived it the Tacoma area since the 70's. Boeing machinist until Y2k then CDL towing and automobile transport for over a decade, now driving a dump truck for a small family owned construction company. I haven't built a kit car or bought a turnkey or had such a fun toy but I used to build and race hobby class and demolition derby until they closed my local track back in the day. It's been a little while and I look forward to that sort of fun again!

I truly hope to meet some of you and I'm excited to be here right now!

Welcome to the forum and se7en ownership!  I'm sorry to hear about your brother-in-law but it's great to know his car is staying in the family.  Woody Harris was the Birkin dealer in Vacaville.  I haven't connected with him in over 10 years, but I do have an email address that might still work if you want to get in touch with him.

Hi all, I just won an auction over on BaT to finally have a Seven of my own and figured I'd say hi.  The Seven will join a family of carbureted, fuel injected, and fully electric machines, each slightly less "practical" than the last.  Thank heavens for a patient and understanding wife :classic_biggrin:

 

Looking forward to bringing the little car to the greater Boston area real soon. Not super looking forward to what registration and inspection will be like, but I'm sure it'll be an adventure.

Congrats on the purchase and glad to see you understand the importance of decreasing practicality in the garage.  It's surprising how many people have trouble grasping that concept :)
