    I did reach out to Josh at Rocky Mountain Caterham, just after I joined here as they were not listed on the Caterham website. His response was first class. Answered every question I asked in detail.

A lot of people on the forum have had very good experiences with them when buying their cars. I've also had positive experiences sourcing parts from them, even though I have a Westfield. Over the years some Caterham dealers have been a little uppity with me regarding Westfield ownership, so they score extra points in my book. If you are looking for something else, it might be worth posting the desired brand(s) to get other recommendations.

    Jonny B When I read your post, I was going to respond and say "Apologies on behalf of the Caterham dealers...give me a call and a chance to change your impression. I am glad to hear that Josh was responsive and helpful. I guess I raised him right after all.

    Hello S7 enthusiasts. I have a 1990 Caterham Super Sprint, live axel, four speed. I bought the car from Vince Hayden Cars in 1997, when they were in Salisbury. I drove in England for several days then Hayden Cars disassembled it, and shipped the parts to me. After assembly at home in Escondido Ca, it was one of the first SB100 cars in California. Today I live on the southern Oregon coast. I’m retired from the medical device business, where I was an engineer and manager. I also enjoy my 67 Elan, and a couple of 50’s Alfa Giuliettas.
    Cheers, Brad

    Hi gents, my name is Mattie. Owned an Elise for 7 years and regretfully lost her driving in the mountains and recently totaled it. Found this forum, and just bought the Dunnell powered Birkin someone had listed here. Always been a fan of less is more and lightweight roadsters, and after the Elise, this is about the only thing lighter around. Also own a couple of motorcycles, KTM 625 Supermoto, Yamaha Bolt C-Spec, street tracker Yamaha TW200, flat track Yamaha SR250, Honda CB360 bobber.
