Westfield Sports cars

I`m considering buying one.

Has anyone had one or got any advice on buying. 
I would generally use it for having a ride out over the North Yorkshire Moors or Yorkshire Dales. Would it shake itself to bits on these roads or are they quite strong?

Cheeky

I had 2 Caterham's, direct descendant's to the Lotus 7, Westfield's are very similar. 

My first was a Super Sprint, my second a 2 ltr Vauxhall engined flyer.
I can tell you they are  manic. You will not have more fun in any other car. The Westfield do a SEight, if the budget stretches to one of these go for it.
You will laugh your nut's off trying to get in and out of the thing when the weather protection is on.
Good luck, hope you get one.:biggrin:

Caterham

I would say get a caterham I did a load of research on it and just the Caterhams hold their value better than westies. 


I got a 2001 super sprint. Love the thing, the sun is beaming and I am out in it. Drive it most days to work and people staring at the car never gets old.

Thanks guys.

Unfortunately the budget will only stretch to a Westfield.

I am not a speed freek, the car I want must have a 16/1700 crossflow with twin 40`s.....I`m more into nostalgia and stuff I can fix than BHP figures. 
Theres a one on the Bay at the mo I quite fancy but there may be problems with it because its regd as a 1970 Cortina! tax free though! But I could be buying trouble if it needs a modern SVA when a copper sees it doesn`t have 4 seats!

mine isnt the most powerful

The one I have isnt the most powerful, it is far from it.


It has a 1600 vauxhall 8 valve engine with twin weber dcoe40 carbs.
It sounds great and new produced just over 110bhp and topped out at about a 105mph.

I would do what I did and save up a bit more as I compared them both and caterhams did win. 

Which ever you get its going to be a good time having it.

Westfield Eleven

My Dad made himself an Eleven a while back using a Midget as the donor car. Looks pretty sweet and goes like stink!
