    Keep an eye on Bring a Trailer. They come up regularly. One identical to mine sold to 24K not too long ago.

    Good luck. Just went through that myself - the spousal approval! :-)

    Does it have to be a Caterham? I've started a new project and i'm only a short drive down the road in Las Vegas. My Birkin has 205 hp and independent rear end.

    I’ve only driven Caterham and WCM. I’m looking for something at least as refined/friendly as the Caterham (well most of them anyway) so my wife can drive it at autocross. There is no way she could have managed the WCM I had. Of course it was a Busa (and a beast). The finish of my WCM was nowhere near as good as Caterham’s I have driven. Need something that pretends to be a real streetable car, at least enough to not intimidate my wife, not a stripped out race car.
    also want something relatively bulletproof, I prefer driving to turning wrenches...that’s just me. ;-)

    So, that being said, not really sure about the Birkin, having never driven one. You can PM me if you like. I’ve had a few people contact me already with offerings. Happy to have a look.

    Thanks.

    You need a Superformance S1.
    What can I add to my fuel stabilizer to make it last longer?
