Almost to Daylight 10-16-09
'62 Lotus Seven 1500 almost ready to see daylight for the 1st time since about 1975!
16 October 2009, somewhere in Los Angeles:
We bought a "barn find" '62 Lotus Seven 1500. It has been in storage for over 30 years. Its an old SoCal slalom/club racer.
Its been a very long day. Just got home at 2115. Left the house at 0430 to beat the traffic in Los Angeles (that's where the car has lived it's entire life). I met my friend Raul at the seller's home. He kindly volunteered to help out with towing the car back to our home. As our little S10 pickup only has a 4-cylinder engine I was worried about wheter or not it was up to hauling a car and trailer over the hills to San Diego. I couldn't believe it, he was at least as excited about the car as I was.
We spent all day digging the cars out of the sellers' garage (the Lotus went into the garage about 1975 and has sat there on it's trailer ever since), getting paper work taken care of at AAA (waaaaaay better than the DMV ), finding and then going across town to America's Tire and getting tires on the trailer's wheels (the kid at Discount, er, America's had never seen a 7.75 x 15 nylon cord tire before!), cleaning the garage, moving the other car back into the garage, driving back home to unload the car and then dumping all of the old stuff that we cleaned out of the seller's garage.
While I'm exhausted, I'm also pretty euphoric. We got the car out into the daylight and back to San Diego County successfully in one day.
The sellers are in their 70's or 80's and had good documentation on the car that includes dash plaques from their slalom racing history. They were an absolute joy to spend time with. Once they got rolling, they never ran out of stories about the people that they have met and the adventures that they have had with their cars in SoCal sports car racing circles during the 50's, 60's 70's. Basically, for me, today was like spending the best day ever with my grandparents and then having it be Christmas and my birthday too. All rolled into one.
On the other hand, it seemed like today was also sort of like being in the movie, "Back To The Future". You know, it was like I was talking to my wife and myself about 30 years into the future. I'm just hoping that my wife and I are as energetic and full of life as our new car's previous owners when we are in our their age!
Hopefully sometime in the coming months I will be able to find the time to get it running and then actually drive it.
Now I can tow another bike behind my trailer, in case I need to take a broken bike to the shop.
If I put a wheel underneath the front of the trailer and balanced the weight right, I could theoretically drive that bike and push my trailer, instead of pulling it behind. That would be weird.
