Hello everyone,

I've been lurking on this forum for a couple weeks now and I've definitely been bitten

But before I completely get caught up in this I have a few questions:

1) I live in Raleigh, NC and I'm wondering about the registration process. How difficult is it? Also, does the car have to pass emmissions? I thought I read that this is no longer required in NC. Is that true?

2) I'm also curious about my prospects for insurance. I'm currently 24, but I'll be 25 by the time I finish the car. Now I don't expect to get a great rate, but will I have a lot of difficulty even finding somebody to insure me? This won't be a daily driver and I have a pretty good driving record. One speeding ticket 3.5 years ago and no accidents/claims. Anybody have any experience with this?

I'm sure I'll have many more questions later, but these will do for now.

there is a spec racer in Raleigh, a coupe in Chapel Hill and Roadster just off i-40 west of Raleigh (arno).

We have a group of about 70 in the NC/SC/VA area called the MAFFROGS...http://groups.yahoo.com/group/midatlanticffrog/

If you join the ffrogs, there is a document posted there about the emmisions.. It does not have to pass.

THe insurance, thats a different question. I have no idea.

It is well worth the trip to go to Whitby's. Very nice people who can answer a lot of questions for you. I haven't ordered my kit yet, but one of these days I will. It's always good to see more Carolina people getting a roadster.

I have a couple of buddies that have FFR cars and live in or around Raleigh. E-mail me and I'll put you in touch with them. They can help you with the registration process.

I have a neighbor, also in north Raleigh, who is getting ready to start his build in a few weeks if you want to see one going together.
