    I am sure you are going to gives us curious folks more pics, any lingering problems with the car and an asking price. Neat looking car from the one picture.

    Updated with price (duh!) and pictures/links. I really enjoy taking the car out, though startup with the Weber carbs can be a finicky, but once going, resonate a sound like nothing else. Big smiles always.

    $14,500? About 2/3s-1/2 its value, IMHO. Should sell fast. At that price I am tempted! Thx to the magic of Bring a Trailer (BAT), prices of this spec Cat have gone thru the roof.

    Solved one mystery for me - this was the Caterham featured in the Hagerty magazine write up last year (or was it earlier this year?).

    Congratulations on the imminent sale.
