    I came to my senses and the CSR is no longer for sale.

    Croc- Thanks for pointing out it was still on Craigslist.

I'd be surprised if it doesn't head back to the UK since it's RHD.

    Croc,

    Thanks for the nice intro. Buddy loves to see his name in print.

    It seems that Ebay is having problems with my ten day listing. It has had something like 500+ visitors in two and a half days and when I looked at the back end; it says the listing ends in five hours. It just went live on Saturday! Maybe it is due to your post ;-) Than you very much.

    The Ebay supervisors' response was that "We see you listed it for ten days. We don't have a way to inform all of the people "Watching" the listing that our system broke. We are sorry for any inconvenience. You can relist it at not charge after it expires tonight."

    For those of you that were watching, it will be relisted. You can see additional information at www.topdocsracing.com or contact me directly md7@7mds.com Thanks for looking.

    In South Florida (where Pompano Beach is), unpainted steel will develop surface rust rather quickly even when stored in an unconditioned garage. I'd hazard a guess that it was purchased from CMC when they were still in business and has sat in that garage since then. I think the left-rear shock has leaked, too.

    I live within 10 miles of it and thought about it for a hot second but I'm willing to wait (and pay) for something closer to finished and/or driveable. It would be far easier, quicker, and cheaper to fit a rollbar and fix the airbox/hood on the Lexington locost that's currently on the market than it would be to complete this rolling chassis.

    There were very few pictures in his ad and a lot of them were underexposed so no details were visible. I had also asked for more pictures and if the rear axle and other suspension pieces were new or not. In response, the seller told me in a rather snarky way that I should fly in to look at it and that I was welcome to take as many pictures as I want. Maybe he thinks he is running a museum and thought my objective was to get pictures of his car/kit It didn't seem to make sense to pay 10% of his asking price to go see it. I became suspicious that he is hiding something and is hoping that once someone had traveled all the way there, they were more likely to overlook some flaw.

    It appears to be surface rust, but at any rate there would be an undo then do as it has set so long. And what is the age of the tires? Too many unknowns here. And at the present time there are many "bargains" in the reasonably priced/completed/sorted/maintained category to be taking on a project, and just doing needed maintenance is a full time job.
