Just finished reading Chris Goodrich’s book, “Roadster” for the second time. If you’re in any way interested in building or learning about Lotus/Caterham Sevens, this is a neat book (you can probably find it on Amazon, BN, etc.).

The book has sort of a “Zen” approach to the whole topic, with Goodrich admitting that he’s sort of a mechanical doofus…..and you may learn a bit about Nietzsche on the way.

Goodrich occasionally drives his creation at Lime Rock, and I’ve seen it in the flesh. The car’s great…the book’s great fun!

Thanks for the review.. How about getting the car itself for me to review.. images/icons/grin.gif

I always liked the 7.. But no one is stupid enough to actually let me drive one.. Ha ha ha ..

Excellent book. If I could afford the kit I'd build one...I'm pretty financially tapped after my two resto projects.

That sounds like someone just like me, maybe there's hope for me yet.

And the Seven absolutely rules!

A Seven kit is right at the top of my "Gosh, I'd like to try that!" list. Problem is fitting in one-I'd need the stretched version!
