Seven11's Seven

Post by seven11 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 4:03 pm

Well it's about time. After a couple of years wandering around these forums I finally swallowed the pill and purchased Frosty's Leitch Supersprint. I drove up from Christchurch to Auckland in the weekend. My wife, who's 37 weeks pregnant came along for the ride up to Wellington.

I'm loving the driving and had a fantastic time bringing it up. The car handled well and only developed a couple of small rattles on the trip up. I managed to get good use out of the roof with snow coming down on the desert road and plenty of rain coming out of Wellington.

It's got an Nissan SR20 S15 in it. I've got lots to learn about looking after this thing, but it's a lot of fun to drive.

Looking for any excuse to go for a drive currently.

Wife in the picture is a wedding photographer so I had to stop and let her take lots of photos.

Great to see Frosty has finally sold his car, being a good mate of his it was with him I had my first conversation with about owning a Seven and the following week he went and turned up in one, that was way back Dec 2008, in Jan 2009 I got Grace and we had a few drives together before he managed to blow the escort motor up that was in the car when he purchased it and that's when the Nissan motor went in and he started his quest to put the car on the track, from that point on we never did a road trip again as the car really only ended up doing trackdays and a couple of races.

Enjoy the car it's a good car just needs some TLC from what I saw and a owner that is interested in it which you seem to be.

Cheers Stephen

Probably pertinent to keep the story of this car going - I'll start a new topic under my ownership.
