    Default Lotus 7 America

    I bought this 1960 Lotus 7 America from an estate in Maryland. Is anyone familiar with the car? It will make a nice garage companion to my 1984 Caterham. I’ve attempted to attach pictures, but am not sure they did. If not, it is orange, car race number 72, and was originally owned by “Bud” Williams. Thanks!!!!!

    I am not exactly sure what I’ll do with it. I am sure it will make it on to a race track at some point. Whether that’s a track day or vintage racing, I don’t know. The previous owner blew the engine, so there are a lot of issues needing to be dealt with first. Fortunately, I have a spare engine for my Bugeye Sprite, and they share the same one, so it won’t be a big problem. The previous engine had a hole in the block you could put your fist through, broken crank, broken main bearing cap, and an assortment of other things you would expect to go along with that damage. It reminded me of the fact that just because you WANT to pass the car in front of you, doesn’t mean you CAN.
