Once Upon A Kit: 1960 Lotus 7 Replica

It is almost time for a big foreign bearded guy to break and enter into millions of family homes around the globe — but only after he has stalked young children for the past year…but if you want to get you mind onto happier thoughts, check out what you can get for less than 10 large? Find this 1960 Lotus 7 Replica offered for $9,500 in Santa Cruz, CA via craigslist.

Between the vintage style fenders (will it float at speed?) is a 1.5 liter Nissan 4-banger that is fed via a few carburetors and mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The seller has owned the car for the past 16 years and it looks like a good deal to me.
