Hi, I'm Rod farnsworth.I've been propted to enter an intro by Basil so here goes. I have a 1968 Lotus Super7, a 1968 Lotus Europa S2, A 1962 Ford Cortina and the 1979 Jag XJ6L. Photos and desciptions are on my web site at:-index (https://members.shaw.ca/rfarnsworth/)
The Jag is my driver but doesn't like Calgary winters. The others are in various stages or rebuild and repair. See web for parts I need. I do need parts, who doesn't?
The major stubling block on the 7 is the gear box nylon gear lever bushing (early integral remote which is part of the tail shaft case on 3 rail box)
The Europa needs a set of pistons an liners for a High Compression Renault (10.5:1) Gordini 807 1565cc engine.
The Cortina needs lots..... see web
Any help on sourcing parts for Lotus and English Ford would be appreciated. I have visited most of the appropriate sites for these marques already.
Regards Rod

Welcome! That is a bunch of neat cars you have there. I particularly like the Seven. I am also from Calgary (well Airdrie).

Hi Rod,

Welcome to the madness... See you tomorrow night at the club meeting?

Anyway this forum is fairly wide ranging and should be of help I trust

One of my first recruits to BCF images/icons/grin.gif We need a few more northerners on here to make the winter pass by quicker up here in the frozen north... images/icons/grin.gif

Hi Rod, welcome to our humble forum! Hope you enjoy your time here and find it a fun and useful place to hang out. Since you have two Lotuses (Loti?) I hope you don't mind that I move your post to the Lotus forum (You posted in the Classified forum - that's for selling stuff). Anyway, no biggie. Welcome again!

Basil
