  7. Thank you for all the good Classic info. The overdrive gear box might be very expensive but it is still a nice thing to have. I really look forward to seeing your car. It is one of the nicest ones I have seen. I wouldn't give up on my first gen for one yet. I love my 06 JCW. I am still curious about where the picture was taken. The big Caterham sign got my attention. I have a Caterham and did not know any shops around here had a connection.
  8. They did not come with overdrive, always a 4 speed. the gear ratios post 1984 are: 3.647|2.185|1.425|1.000 with the diff ratio changing from 3.105 to 2.76 in 1996. That lower the rpm at highway speeds and reduced noise, but sacrificed torque on twisty roads in lower gears. I can run 65mph down the highway with no issues, the biggest issue you can have is overheating on extended highway driving in the hotter humid summer. That can be corrected fairly cheap with improved water pump, radiator, and if needed a larger pulley to decease the speed the pump spins. James had his re-geared as he drives it on the highway for long distances, and he said being able to cruise at 80 was not worth what he lost where you do your fun driving.
  9. Ali - Tggrrr looks great. I look forward to seeing it in person. That guy in Norfolk does a great job. However my primary questions are about that really cool Classic. I want to know if the latter Classics had 5 speeds so highway driving is easier? I would also like to know where the picture was taken? I have a Caterham and I was not aware there was anyone around here who worked on them.
