    I like that 308. Pity you need to have a front plate displayed. A brilliant piece of automotive styling.

    I keep mine in the cubby under the roll bar. If I get stopped I do the "It fell off, sir. I am on my way to have it remounted."

    I just don't worry about it. Didn't display one on the old Miata either. Our Texas cops do not seem to care. Bless them. Anyway, some tickets are just like a tax. If we enjoy the benefits, we shoould be willing to pay the tax. Plate ticket = tax on beauty. Speeding ticket = tax on speed. I just pay and go on.

    Cops are very tolerant of cool cars. At least state troopers. I have been warned to cool it a couple of times without getting more than a gentle adminition. And that in a 2000's Boxster. A caterham is sure to get even better treatment.

    Default Thank you!

    I would like to compliment you, Croc. You are a busy man with significant professional endeavors, yet you faithfully search out and post the most comprehensive collection of Sevens I can find anywhere. Hemmings is a drop in your bucket of Seven goodies, and they're pretty good with rare cars. Aware as I am of the immense remuneration associated with this task, your results are even more wondrous. I hope to purchase another Seven soon, and I consult your work regularly. For all who have enjoyed the explosion of senses, the instantaneous reactions, the visceral impact that is otherwise known as piloting a Seven, I salute you. Please keep it up. You are doing more than you know for Seven ideology.

    Limited experience with police so far in my 7 but I did get pulled over twice in one night within 3 miles.

    Mind you at any point in time, my 7 is in violation of at least (inspection, exhaust, no front plate, no rear plate light) at any point in time.

    Got pulled over for no lights on the rear plate. Told the cop cars like this come with certain limitations. He sympathised and wrote me for failing to notify dmv of change of address (was also true). Then when pulled over down the road they said they saw me take a turn a little too fast and were curious as to what car it was (during the night). Chatted for a bit and off I went.

    Thank you Bruce. Coming from someone with such an eclectic background in past car ownership (like me) that counts for a lot.

    Good luck finding your perfect seven later this year.

    I concur and also give Croc endless kudos. I've been checking this list for probably 7 years now, before I was even in the market for a 7.

    I'm just glad Croc is not TOO good at doing this, otherwise he would have spotted mine and it would have gotten snagged before I got to it

    Glad the seller sold it last auction at no reserve. All the reason for him to try and sell it again....
