I've been lurking for a while. I really want to build a Locost at some point, this seems like it would be a great starting point, but I don't have garage space.

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/5332277475.html

These don't come up in the SF Bay Area that often. To be clear, I'm not the seller.

I have no idea if there is interest in this.. but I've been trying to get rid of my last project for a few months now. Why not try here?

Tommy, if you succumbed to it's allure (and the bid remains realistic) would drive it (again once you're all healed up and sold the Locost) or just look at ?

At my age I'm afraid that looking would be it.

And it come with a FF engine!

Always really liked the 61. Thanks for the post.

Toys are meant to be played with, so I'd drive it. I know I'll never get a scca racers license because of my heart so it would see Solo and PDX only.

Id do some more research on its history to either prove or disprove the naysayers in the comments section

Not mine, no affiliation. Personally don't see 10k, but that's just my opinion

would be cool when finished

The buyer had a plan. Clean it up and make 3 grand or more.

Have you guys seen this?
Ford Ecoboost crate motor.
I've been emailing with him today about fenders. He seems like a nice guy.

I like the rear end
