        Is that Caterham's inventory?

          Yes, the pictures of the cars are at the Caterham dealership. The building picture is of Redline Components, about 300 metres away. Redline is the Caterham approved source for early Caterhams and Lotus Sevens. Basically Caterham offloaded the old car business to Redline several years ago.

            I was at Redline in 2003 when I had the opportunity to attend the 24 hours of Le Mans with the Lotus 7 Club. By a stroke of luck I was put in touch with a club member who had an open seat in a rented Caterham. It had fluctuating oil pressure so we had to make a side trip to Redline for a new sender.
            I didn't realize that they had taken on the second hand Caterham business.

              They haven't taken on the 2nd hand, i.e. used car, business. They have the early car parts and restoration business.

              Here's another shot from my trip:

                Town of Caterham, old shop on the hill.

                Ron,

                Looks pics at the original Caterham site in the town of Caterham. Is that correct?

                Great pics

                  You are correct about the 1st pics. The pic taken from the cockpit was taken just after leaving the Hockenheimring on the way to the Nurburgring.

                  Ha anybody noticed what's wrong in this picture?

                    The thing that jumps out at me is there's no water temperature indicated on the gauge.

                      No alternator output, running on 11 volts. I was curious about the rearview mirror, is it a Caterham part?

                        The driver is on the wrong side of the car.

                        The piston gear shift knob is wrong.

                        The driver's hat is really really wrong. :-D

                          Turn signal stalk on steering column, or is it indicator?

                          Gauges don't say Caterham but could have been changed. I like them better.

                            It's not a Caterham

                            The funny thing is my wife goes " What is that car a Morgan ? " and I said "No that's a Caterham but there is a Morgan driving it " -delise

                              Why would anybody arrange the gauges so that the tach is furthest away from the driver?
