It is good to see the LEC still going strong and it has been a few years now since I have been able to attend a meet. Work has been the key reason I have not be able to get out to events, and even worse not use the car. After some sole searching I think it is time to let my beloved Locust go to a new owner who will enjoy the car. I am currently tidying the car for sale, but I would prefer it to go to someone that likes our breed of 7. If anyone knows of an interested party then please let me know. If I have not sold the car before the next show I may get to a meet before the car has gone.
I have a Pinto, 2ltr engined Hornet, chassis no. 052, for sale. I built the car and have been its only owner. The engine has a big valve head and fast road cam fuelled by a pair of twin 40s developing 125 bhp. is in very good condition, but some of the panels need a repaint. I have the paint. If you are thinking of building a car, why not buy this one as you could not build a car of this specification for the money. Plus you have a running car, that will come with 12 month's MOT, that you can use for the summer.
If you are interested email me for a detailed spec and some photos, or ring me on 01895676043, or 07758919005 firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm trying to source a locust chassis and wondered if anyone still makes them or if plans are available to make my own. I've had a set of the original JC plans for the body tub for about 25 years and think it time I did something with them!!
