    Would be interested in seeing pics of your Datsun 2000. I had one when I was in HS in 72. Lots of great memories of that car. But the Seven will spoil you.......

I just got it back to Alexandria, VA and it has caught the attention of the neighborhood, so much so I was giving short rides around the block. I am sure I will have questions in the future since this is my first Caterham so thanks in advance.
    Congratulations on your new purchase! Good to see you found a Caterham after your searching.

    If you want a gentle introduction to HPDE this year then this event is coming up:

    Thanks everyone! I had much rather buy a car in person, be able to look it over, and learn the history from the owner than bid on a car unseen and pay a buyers premium. It just so happened this car checked enough of the boxes and was in the same area as a trip I had planned.

    I will have to mark down the HPDE date, the event sounds like a blast!

    To save you some drama if you're seriously considering going this year, you will need to replace your driver side belt harness because it's likely out of date and NJMP inspection checks it.

    With that said, it's incredible fun to go and meet the crew and participate in 7 only session. Afaik it's the only event of the type in the country and every year it gets harder and harder to keep having it. I believe Mike and Tom are the two main organizers behind the event and go through great lengths and challenges to keep making it happen. If you have means and ability, I strongly recommend it.

    Vlad here is talking from painful experience on the belts. Prepare in advance - in-date 5/6 pointer harness, either SFI or preferably FIA labelled (longer expiry on FIA belts).

    Its not just HPDE, its intended to be social and build up a support network for all of us to call on. You can meet people who will be local to you for backroad drives, seeking out parts sourcing, upgrade solutions, etc. There are not enough of us around so we need to look out for each other.
