    Well that makes sense. It is our good friend Graham who is also on this forum and has a well set up and very quick Honda Locost.

    Sadly I won’t be posting tomorrow as I just do not have internet signal to get the search results processed. So I will have a nice relaxed breakfast bobbing around the North Sea.

    "sob". Will miss the little jewels you seem to find and am a bit jealous that you will be bobbing around the North Sea. Have fun and have a mimosa for me!

    Since Croc is out on the North Sea (jealous) This just popped up on Fleabay. Interested to hear what you'all think. Did Caterham make a '67? Windshield looks odd. Am I the only person who thinks that's Derek Bell? https://www.ebay.com/itm/283575508222?ul_noapp=true

    I think it means he has an early Caterham (correct - look at chassis restoration photo) that is titled as a 1967 Lotus in his state. Graham Nearn did not buy the rights off Lotus to manufacture the seven until 1973

    Ouch. Is that vehicle insufficiently pursang for USA7s? Points, though, for referencing LocostUSA without saying "those people".

    I agree that it's posted on the wrong forum, mostly because it's £4,500.00 (about $5250 'murrican money) and it's on the wrong side of the pond. It probably would do better in a forum with "UK" in its name than "USA". And as it's only 3/4 of a Se7en, perhaps <UK5.25s.net> would have a place for it.

    Yes PanAmericano was a little harsh there. I have always enjoyed the company of Locost owners. I would not afflict that Reliant Robin beast on them.

    Mind you, you have to watch out for Westfield owners - they sneak up on you when you are not watching and some of them even like Porsha Boxsters.

    Well, I don't know what one can say about the Robin, except to make fun of it.

    No intention of snobbing the Locost side. I tried to buy 2 home-builts before I found my bargain basement Birkin.

    Since Croc is out of range, here is one from LocostUSA. Apparently the ebay sale ends today, so hurry

    The windshield is installed incorrectly and too upright. The base of the mount should be parallel with the join line of the scuttle and tub. And yes, that certainly looks like Derek Bell. I seem to recall he is involved with a car dealership in Florida where that car is located.

    It looks like the front mounting bolt is too low. Re-drilling the mount properly would leave a visible hole.
