Lotus Seven replica

50

It’s not a real Lotus, but it runs like one. It takes all the good bits from the Miata and weighs right around 1300 lbs. The engine has been worked over and makes about 175 hp out of 1600 cc. It currently holds the overall lap record at our local track. You might have seen it in Grassroots playing with an Atom. It’s also the subject of a book. Warning, the website might suck you in.

Keith's Locost is one of the cars I wish I could vote for twice. Actually, almost all of Keith's cars make me wish I could vote for 'em twice.

Dude, you wrote the web software. I'm sure you could vote as many times as you want!

Wouldn't be fair... and it would actually be more work to make an exception just for me.

Enjoyed the book, but wanted more power. Built mine with a Rover V8 (1465 lbs.). Now it needs more tire.
