    you'll have an adventure with whatever you get. i'm not really pushing to sell the Birkin, ( I drive it almost every week) but will let it go to someone who really wants one. if you learn more about them and get interested, let me know.

    As near as I can tell, there is a difference between an equally spec'ed Birkin and a Caterham...$10k.

    There, that ought to start something.

    Well...things changing a bit. Wife is ok with getting car, happy with Autocross, not so happy with high speed track days.

    So now narrowing ( or opening the field depending on how you look at it) to
    2L Caterham or Stalker as they fit neatly into D Modified or E Modified classes.
    Iím more partial to the lighter cars myself, but would consider a Stalker...

    Still only interested in modern motors, 175+HP with Ecu and easy to source parts and service.
    Unfortunately there is no place(that I can find) in Autocross for over 2 liter Caterhamís due to weight restrictions.
