    Can some of y'all take a look at this and comment? I am seriously considering buying it.

    First observation is that it has been for sale for a very long time through a variety of channels. Good indicator of over-pricing so be sure of your value going in.

    There is a photo and some discussion (I think) of this car in the Dennis Ortenburger book. Its not clear if this was a Lotus experiment with IRS or an individual owner's modifications. With history so vague it makes valuing the car difficult. Also it makes it very owner specific in terms of liking or not. I suspect it is a very effective vintage racer which is why you are actively considering it. How effective a racer it is should be something with some level of documentable proof by the seller so you have a guide to potential before diving in.

    Assuming that you will be racing this, make sure it will be accepted by the organization you want to run with and classified properly.

    Get all the documentation you can!

    Good Luck!

    Now for something a tiny bit different. For V-6 Storker drivers that think they really should have had a V8:

    Is that an autox car or one made for the demolition derby? We Storker owners are a bit more se7enesque, don't you think? Hehehe, I do like my LS3/480 in my Storker XL.

    Wouldn't that car be hard to steer? I've never seen steamrollers on the front of a car that wide.

    I love that the seller of the "steam roller" V-8 special explains the sale by saying: "downsizing parents." The less we know about that the better.

    I think you posted this on the wrong forum. To find a buyer, this belongs on the LocostUSA forum. Slap an old VW front end (air cooled Beetle) under it and call it done.

    The word is out about Croc.

    From LocostUSA:
    If you have any link to the vehicle information you should put it on the usa7s.net a user called croc keeps a weekly updated list of just about all the 7 type cars for sale in USA and Canada. It's a major resource for anyone looking for 7 type car, I have sent many people over to the list who are looking for cars.

    Ref this car:
