Nice ! 

Will you be able to drive it in late October / November where you are ? At least to run it in.

Can't see any windscreen or roof on your one. Heater ?

Yeah so I live on the state line between North and South Carolina. Average temperature 8.2 million degrees, almost year round lol. Sometimes we do Christmas in shorts, sometimes in snow. I'll for sure be able to run it in this year.  Heater and heated carbon seats and a fuzzy hat will help. 

I will order a proper windscreen and a smaller, less obnoxious cage or roll bar before next spring.

LOL that sounds fun. We do have lots of that stuff around. I'm 30 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and about an hour and a half from the Tail of the Dragon (youtube it, trust me).  

Plan is to spend all my miles winding in these mountain roads.  Coming to Goodwood next year, most likely Revival, will meet many of you then I suppose.  Be good to get back to Jolly Old...

Might have to borrow someone's spare 7!

#105 - we drove a long way on the Blue Ridge Parkway when I made a pilgrimage to Charlotte for the NASCAR race in 2013  .Our Mustang coped well but a Seven would be a blast on that road. You live in a beautiful area- we loved it .

John c'mon back and we'll run the Blue Ridge parkway (when I get my 7). Only fun car I have at the moment is a 77 Land Cruiser that's *almost* got a new Cummins turbodiesel installed. A very fun slow car indeed.

Maybe we can get the Tail of the Dragon featured in 2023, with a certain low slung wild purple 7 CSR...  

Lol
