So when I introduced myself on here a while back I had mentioned that I was going to start on my Lotus 7 clone this summer. I've read into the matter for over a year, planning out all of the technical aspects, but never looking how much it would be to insure a 200hp 1200lb Lotus 7 clone with a 20 year old male piloting the pocket rocket. I was unpleasantly surprised with the quote they gave me, and further searching has yielded no better results,
Ive been reading The Driver by Alex Roy, Im not sure if you guys are familiar with him: He drove across the US in 31:04 (yes 31 hours), winner of Gumball rallies, and so forth. He has a pretty good setup in his car
And recently I found out about some underground rallies (not street races) in my hometown area and the idea has just struck me: Why not build a rally car, much like Alex's M5?
Ive had some ideas for cars, preferably a 4 door sedan, something with plenty of room for all of the electronics, and something big enough to cruise comfortably.
I know this is a lot of reading, but I'm coming to you guys for suggestions for a sport touring car, used, priced right around 5K. Thanks for putting up with my novel of a post.
