After many years, I finally decided to get myself a 7. The 7 was designed in 1957 by Colin Chapman, the founder of Lotus. It was originally known as the Lotus 7. In the 1970’s rights to the 7 were sold to Caterham, who now sell the 7. Actually you get to buy a kit of parts and you have to build the car yourself.
This blog shows the path from taking the test drive through car building and finally driving the completed car. Most of the construction happened in April & May 2013.

I also went though some of the older posts and added some Hindsight comments in italics.
