Hi Paul, That is bad, but between now and Spring something could turn up. Ignore the naysayers, you know what it is worth. When you have created something it becomes part of you, something people who have not done it do not understand. Look for other solutions first. Good luck. Dave
Yes, that's a Lotus Seven S1 from about 1959. I owned one for about 20 years. It would have had an A Series (or Coventry Climax) engine originally but a Ford 1300 had been "transplanted" with the exhaust running via the passenger footwell. I bought it with a bent chassis so had it repaired at Arch Motors with an S3 front end. Paranoid about the alloy nose, I copied it in GRP for everyday use. Another car I should never have sold!!!
Hi Paul, keep your head up. I fully understand your position as I am also a self employed Consultant / Project Manager and signed a 20 Month contract in April with my current client only to be told last Friday that the project I was working on is no longer going ahead because of financial reasons so I was given one months notice and will be finishing at the end of September. Life is a funny thing as I was driving home contemplating the news I received a phone call about another project for a year at a company 3 miles from where I live. Like you just waiting now to meet them and hopefully get the job so its a topsy turvey life being self employed but you will get something very soon I am sure, I would be devastated if I had to sell the car but needs must so I feel your pain. Hope all works out for you and pretty sure it will
I've done that before and had to re-do a bunch!
Don't forget some rain gear for the Revival!
Wish I could make it this year, but $$$ is not there for the
airline tickets from the USA.
