    Interesting what is out there in the area we don't know about. But I guess both sellers smoked unknown vegetable matter.

      Chequered Flag is a dealer on Lincoln in the Marina. They offer up all kinds of cars.

      The 40th anniversary car looks like Clark's!

        If somebody should be interested in the Birkin, this used to be Bill Gemini's car that he sold last year. He can surely answer some questions about it (PM for contact).

          According to the Birkin list archive, Bill's car wasw built by Larry Anderson at Woody's shop (MSI). That ought to be a pretty good car.

            Ah ha, I thought it looked familiar! I saw it at Woody's shop when Larry owned it, then again on a blat when Bill owned it. Hopefully it will stay in S. California and I'll see it again soon.

              I really like the 40th Anniversary cars; the color scheme was my first choice for my car. $39,000 for a crossflow car seems awfully high-was the car that expensive when new??

                Someone could have spent that much in 1997.

                The basic kit was about $28K in 2001, plus engine and transmission. Add leather seats, paint, 40th anniversary extras, assembly costs and you might be at the $39K in 1997

                  I paid about that for my Superlight R with only 4k miles on it and all the expensive racey bits, seems a great deal comparatively.
                  I figured I would have had to spend around $65k to recreate it as new.

                    Maybe they set the asking price hoping for somebody without a clue or who does not care. Otherwise I have heard of similar Caterhams go for 10k - 15k less lately. No sure if the "Anniversary" tag has some value, though.
