    I have to admit I am partial to silver sevens, owning two myself. I think we need more photos plus a driving video.

    Oh I would not worry about getting too old for this - grow old disgracefully - works for me all the time

    Okay double Mikes, Here are a few more pics. You can see the Crystal River Nuclear Plant in the background on some of the pics that Gulf Power is in the process of decommissioning.

    Its good to see that your seven confirms the old truth that sevens look better than their owners - at least for me anyway!

    Super clean - it appears to be a high-quality build. About the only thing I'd do is replace the steering wheel with a Momo.

    Mike, I really like the looks and feel of the Momos. However, since I will be autoxing it at times and have to pull the seat way up due to being fairly short (5'7") and the cockpit being much longer and slightly wider than the older Stalkers, the current steering wheel seems pretty ideal sitting close to my chest.

    Great looking se7en! And over-the-top power! Your ownership reminds me of one of my favorite sayings (mentioned in previous posts): "Youth is fleeting, but immaturity can last a lifetime"! Since I am older than you, I know of whence I speak.

    Your saying is one that I will remember. It reminds me of what Carroll Bryant said: "Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional"

    When my wife is asked if we have any children, she responds, "Yes, one, and Bob is it".
