I'm sure these have been seen before, but OH YEAH! How can you go wrong with bodywork and sequential shifting? Sign me up!

Are these cars built to "book" standards, or something else? They seem wider and larger to me. Maybe it's because i don't speak Norwegian. =P

It was tough to really see bodies there, but almost every Swedish 7 picture I've seen has had slightly different lines than we see over here or in the UK.

Better lines!

I'll have to look but I've got a pic of one with a V8 that just sets my heart a racing every time I see it.

Of course they have a website: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fsevenracing.no%2F

I ran it through Google translate. :wink:

I really like the look of the cars with the side pods/full bodies. That solves a lot of problems.

I'll say it before JD gets a chance...."Well, y'all know that's why Bubba built a Mallock look-e-like. Dat's my Nor-wee-gee-ian bloodlines showing. Y'all have a nice day, now, hear." (My very poor impression of JD's southern vernacular) :D

Go back in your igloo, Bill, there might be a hockey game on, eh? :rofl:


I do like the looks of those cars, though.

Hmmm... Perhaps there is some Nor-wee-gee-ian in my ancestry... GrandPa got around when he had that motorcycle...

Looking at all of them it appears there's somewhere you can buy those body parts. I wonder who sells them and if we can get them in the good ol' US of A?

What are you thinking JD? It's summer. There's no hockey on now. Everyone here is busy watching the US Open tennis tournament...even though all of the Canadians were out earlier than expected.

Yeah, that's too bad... But, ya know, they might do better if their tennis rackets didn't look like this-

But fall is in the air down here, high today was only 92! Come on down for a visit! Bring your tennis racket, we'll use it to swat mosquitoes!

Gonzo can you tell me where you got this picture?

I'm searching forums worldwide to try to find some sort of 7 kit that resembles this and so far haven't had any success. There are too many of them showing up in those videos for everyone to be making their own from scratch.

It doesn't matter what model it's for, modifying an existing kit is easier than starting from scratch.

Damned if I remember... The "info" tab for the picture says the photographer is "Bengt-Ace Gustavsson"... Playing with Google led me to here: http://www.racefoto.se/index.php/nggallery/mina-favoriter/bestof/page/3?page_id=13/ Which I think is the website of the photographer, and I found a link to http://www.sevenracing.no/ which I think is the series for those cars. Now, iffen I could just figger out where they hide the pictures...

Try those links, see if you have any luck. I'll look some more too.
