    Forgive me father as I am about to spend money this morning by letting my dick control my wallet....

    I found these lovely carbon fiber hand brake grips for sale on Pistonheads this morning and I simply cannot live without buying one...
    http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/t...andbrake+lever

    so I will!

    I have also found a car for sale that I desperately want - so I will need to log off shortly to control my irrational primeval urges and will take up cold spoon therapy.


    But getting back to looking at sevens:

    This one is not in the US. Its technically not a seven but it looks fairly close. It will take about 16 of your kidneys to buy. It is gorgeous.

    I won't repeat the Locost with yamaha R1 as I am bored of seeing it but you will find it for sale on Craigslist, Ebay, Bringatrailer and other websites for $7500.

    Anyone need a Birkin radiator?
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Birkin-S3-ra...4c64d3&vxp=mtr


    I also won't repeat the three Caterhams for sale in San Francisco. Feels like they have been for sale for years. Prior posts will still have links active.


    A Birkin for sale on Fleaboay with a starting bid at $25999. Looks a little steeply priced by my view but I bet someone on here might like it?

    The BRG Westfield with tan upholstery is still around at $32k

    Well, so far I've pissed myself (twice), squirted hot coffee out my nose (skip;, I know how you feel ), drained the savings account, made arrangements to take out a second mortgage on the house and now have the wife and kids strategically located around town at various intersections with cardboard signs in hopes that we will be able to eat tonight.

    Hank, that is simply a beautiful build story and an exceptional conclusion to what must have been a lot of work. I had gone back through your threads and even noticed that you worked hard to match period style glass for the windscreen. Good job.

    I was wondering however if the non-stock engine was of any concern. Wondering why you didn't rebuild the stock engine that came with the car?

    Boy, I would love to try driving that car. My Birkin is a different beast, to be honest. It'd be fun to try an original 7 on some corners! I bet it'd be a blast.

    I loved the build pictures. I restore cars from time to time too (working on a Europa now, and recently a 68 Nova drag car) and you know, some of those old pics of that car scare me with how much work has been put in to it. Its daunting when you're at day 1. I cant believe how nicely it turned out though!

    The "stock engine" was long gone. The Twin Cam dry sump was part of the previous owner's bastardization of the car into (we guess) was to be an autocross vehicle. The pictures of the condition at the start of this project don't do justice to just how bad the car was abused.
    With all that in mind, and with Mike Ostrov having a Lotus Seven America with the stock 948cc BMC engine (a roaring 36 horsepower) I decided to go to the Seven America configuration, but use the last iteration of the BMC A Series...the 1275cc found in the late Spridgets. (Please note that the car could be returned to a "bone stock" configuration quite easily with a 948cc motor as the mounts are the same) Rebuilt by Seven Enterprises here in Auburn (who build SCCA championship Mini Cooper engines/transmissions) it was bored .010 over to get 1310cc, with a mild cam, twin SU's and the four branch exhaust, it has an estimated 90 HP and loads of bottom end torque (a guy has to have some fun out there on the roads!<g>). Added a Gustavsen hi torque starter in the process along with a Pertronix ignition. The Spal cooling fan is independently switched and fused and provides air flow in any stop and go situations of length. I completely rewired the chassis, using one gauge heavier wire in all runs, along with marine grade spade connectors. The gauges were all sourced to be period correct...Seven Americas had chrono tachs, I added a chrono speedo. And since I had been a fan of the original Prisoner tv show which I first saw in the late 1960's, I went with the green and yellow motif, but left the lower body natural aluminum.
    It was a challenge, but an immense source of fun, to rebuild it into what you see now. But, approaching our 70's (like next November) the car is just "too much"...the missus doesn't like being wind buffeted any more, and I can't blame her, and much prefers the more refined ride and civility of the Lotus Elite. So, the Seven will be available for someone to become the next caretaker, to enjoy it, maintain it and pass it along in due time to another aficiando. Thanks for all the nice comments about the car.

    Okay, Mike, I'm sitting in College Station, TX. Getting ready to burn up some track time at TWS. But first, I need my morning read. Don't miss the new Storker (chassis #154) listing in Craigslist. Coffee's hot.......come on!

    Sorry I got distracted doing a VIN exam on BAT's listing of an E9 3.0CS. Unfortunately I would not recommend that as a buy!
