    Smile Getting My 7 Tomorrow!

    Finally getting my brand new Caterham tomorrow!
    I ordered my 280 S the last week of November 2017 from Tony and Rick at Time Machines in Buffalo NY. It's been a long wait, but they were great to explain why the delay. Apparently, because of new European regulations, all the engines that go thru the factory must be emissions certified by them. A major undertaking as that was dropped on them like a bombshell. Then, Caterham decided to do the painting of the cars, "In-house", instead of subbing it out. So some time was lost there as the transition took place.

    No matter, at first it was a bit disappointing, but it's all for the best and water under the bridge.

    I'll post pics as the build comes together. I'm looking forward to it!

    The only salt that this car will near, will be from the "chips" while on a Fish and Chips run!

    Thanks everyone, I'll post some pics tomorrow! I'm going through the newly designed build manual right now and all night I'm sure... LOL
