who's VW beetle is that then
The best that you have is a complement indeed. Many thanks.
Had a lovely drive this weekend, went from CC down to Wales and then came back today. Have not owned a car with working aircon since 1997 (Esprit S3, Esprit SE had broken aircon, Elise had none, first 911 had none) and I must say it made a HUGE difference in how much I enjoyed driving in the sun. I hate being hot.
Rock solid, 3.6 litres of aircooled engine purring through hundreds of miles effortlessly, accelerating fast lag free and silk smooth, burbley overrun, icy cold cabin, and the most comfortable seats I've ever had.
Walking round Castle Combe I do miss my Lotus's, Interestingly I miss the S1 Elise most of all. I was chatting to Martyn and despite owning Esprits for ten years, I think the Elise S1 will be the Lotus I remember and miss the most, it's the last car Lotus made I'd really want to own. Vicki misses it more than me. I'd still own it but I can't/don't want to/don't have room to/ own more than one car. And besides, when you have owned all the ones you wanted to, committing to only buying one brand forever is pretty mindless...
Hand on heart, my ideal Lotus is an S1 Elise, non VVC,. And I really enjoyed seeing so many again yesterday. Just need Vicki to buy herself one!
