Looks like you're going to have your hands full with that Cobra replica.

Good luck on the sale.

Calling NPGMIKE---looks like a great chance to own. Just hop on I-24 East and bring some money
and you can own instead of want. Highly doubt that you will find anything closer--under 300 miles.
Not to worry. these cars really never are finished. You will have plenty of opportunity for cuts, scuffs, and general vocabulary enhancement. Great opportunity to show up at you Sevens gathering in a Locost instead of a Focus. Best of luck to the owner on the sale. Looks like a value considering cost of parts. let alone time spent. I wish I had gone this route.

The "bring some money" part is the problem. My money comes in dribs & drabs! So building suits my needs better. Also, I get almost as much joy out of building as I do driving. But having said that, there's no reason that hpbugeye couldn't run on over to Mountain Home with a "FOR SALE" sign on the Se7en. There are going to be more than a few people there looking to get their first start with a Locost!!!

Hey, hpbugeye! Like Boodog said, only about 300 miles!

Sorry MIke, didn't realize you had a build in progress. My bad. Anyway, good suggestion on
marketing the car at the gathering if not sold.

No need to apologize. My build is still in the dreamin' & designing stage, and things kinda got put on hold when we had a flash flood run through my garage about a year ago. Add to that, I was down with a broken leg between Labor Day & Christmas, but things are slowly coming back together now! :D
