        Al Navarro on the East Coast here. If the cost isnt' too crazy, I'd be very interestedin going. I'd leave the Superlight at home...but perhaps look into Caterham's rental plan? On second thought, probably best to drive in a larger rental due to the RHD thing.

          50th Anniversary Celebration

          I've already discussed this event with my wife and said it's something I'd like to attend. Our '7' is a 40th Anniversary model and I'd like to see first hand what the 50th Anniversary edition looks like! Besides I have a number of cyber friends in the L7CGB it would be good to meet in person. At this point, this trip is high on my wish list and an excellent motivator to get my expired passport replaced.
