Was talking with one of my closest friends I haven't talked to in a long time lol.
But yea, he says he's doing a project, gonna make a car from scrat... Show morech. Now, it sounded abit far-fetched to me till I realized his plans.
Well the car is going to take after the Lotus Super 7, formally known as The Caterham. But I wasn't used to it being called the Super 7 till he showed it to me... my jaw just smashed through the floor!!!
I'm like 'WTF THAT'S MY DREAM CAR!!!' and he got a good laugh out of it which really embarrassed me since I'm still thinking the car was only made by hand and made only for racing in Europe... I was WRONG!!! Turns out the car is mass produced and really cheap! Like, the thing only weighs in at about 1.4k LB, features a I4 at 330BHP with almost matching TQ, and can challenge a Ferrari with no struggle and kill most any American made car hands down!
The Caterham has been my dream car ever since the day I saw it on Sega Grand Prix on the xBox when it first came out, it's design was the main thing that intrigued me. Well... thanks to http://www.furaffinity.net/user/bluekitsune , I can now presute that dream again of getting one as I now know they are mass produced and really cheap o_O Not only that, it proves to be a menace on the track to even big names like Porsche, Ferrari, Mercedes, and even McLaren!!!
I freaking love that car and will forever be a supercar in my books!! :D

About a week later I got him home on a trailer for obvious reasons lol. Haven't gotten around to washing him up yet, instead I was literally in shock tha... Show moret not only was he my second car, but the fact he was one of the original Z body styles and the same one who inspired the retro 370Z running around today!Anyway, I cleared a spot for him in the driveway, he's at my friend's house since I don't trust this area very will... poeple even stare at my 944 with hungry eyes, it just makes me nervious... Well, who wants some pictures?! :D Here we have Ms. 944 welcoming him to his new home and family :D don't mind that unsitely Chevy back there >_> lol (and yes I still have my 944 and I'm not giving her up with out GOOD reason, so back off!!! >:D ) Show Less
you can really see how dusty he was. The previous owner installed that air scoop on the bonnet to help prevent vapor lock as these cars did have that bad. I ... Show morehave yet to run the car on the freeway to find out just how well it works but I must saw the guy did a great job at putting it on and feathering it flush to the bonnet's surface!
