Want to buy a Caterham/Lotus Super Seven, must have the Ford Zetec powerplant. Either PM me or email me at susej1981 at gmail.com

Thanks!

You should get Hayes at Wire Wheel looking for you, and contact Tony Vaccaro through Lotus Ltd.

Zetec you are looking at Caterham or maybe Birkin

Personally you should figure out which car you want, rather than focus on an irrelevant detail like drivetrain.

Everything over 100 horse is going to be fast enough to scare the crap out of you.

A De Deon Caterham is a hell of a of piece of engineering, and one with any engine will be nicer than most others.

How about a 7 SLR with a 2.3L dry sump, ITB Cosworth? Weighs 1180lbs wet... Plenty of power >:)

The usual story of new baby, too many toys too little time... :(

That's a beautiful SLR, the go fast carbon fiber bits and Tilletts make it really nice. I check USA7's and a variety of sites nearly twice a day looking for a Zetec S3. It wouldn't be hard to find one if I didn't mind a older carbureted model, but I'm pretty set on a Zetec due to parts availability (Ford Focus engine after all) and a Zetec isn't antique.

Appreciate the help!
