  1. What's new in this club
  2. Where is everyone?

    Well, I can't see me using it for quite a while; make me an offer!
  3. Where is everyone?

    Yeah, get your motor out or sell it to me.......... Please
  4. Where is everyone?

    Get your motor out Andy...it's too good to be sat about.
  5. Where is everyone?

    Ah yes, suffer for your heart's desires. You're in good company 'round here!
  6. Where is everyone?

    Usually Bibs yes...but it hasn't stopped raining for three days! At least I know what an escarpment is now! Andy A, it's the original one, no protection whatsoever...I got caught out a couple of weeks ago in a really heavy shower...it was like sitting in the bath!
  7. Where is everyone?

    Well I had to look that one up. Which version is it? And do you have any dry clothes?
  8. Where is everyone?

    Shouldn't you be on an escarpment @Hippo?
  9. Where is everyone?

    I'm still here...still got the Exige, and I bought a KTM X-Bow last year...am I allowed to say that?!
  10. Where is everyone?

    Hi Martin, Good to know you're still about! @ Mark; and you too, Loose Cannon!
  11. Where is everyone?

    Still here, last year a washout for events due to a missing engine, also a bereavement too. Hoping for better this year but still missed Duxford due to medical appointments...never ends!
  12. Where is everyone?

    Hi, I'm back, sorry guys but due to life, death and all sorts going on around me I've neglected tlf for a couple of years, hopefully more time to play with cars now, my garage has changed since I was last posting here.... Update.. Exige 260 cup track day car, elan +2 show car, elan S4 fast road car, elan sprint awaiting restoration!! Looking forward to contact with friends old and new. Cheers, Martin
  13. Where is everyone?

    Yeah but it would be the end of a beautiful relationship with the in laws!
  14. Where is everyone?

    Don't leave it sat doing nothing. The turbos will fall off and it will sulk
  15. Well I moved in with my partner and unfortunately she doesn't have space for the Lotus so it's ensconced in her Father's garage behind all sorts of detritus. So until and unless we get a bigger place it's unlikely I'll even be getting mot'd this year! Sob. But, judging by the lack of posts here (NEEG), I won't be missing much? Where is everyone?
  16. Hi folks, I appreciate not exactly on your door step either but the LEGS group is heading into the SW corner of our territory away from our normal hunting grounds and would happily see some of you join us. We are basically going to visit the David Coulthard Museum and Chocolate Factory in Twynholm. This is west of Dumfries heading for Stranraer. For more information and links to website etc. see the posting in the LEGS section here Cheers, Al.
  17. In London it's a traffic jam, in the North East it's a car show
  18. Excellent weekend in Newcastle, meeting up with Andy_A and his red V8 and another Esprit owner who had picked up his car less than 24 hours earlier! Thanks to David Harding and NE1 Newcastle for organising this inaugural event and hopefully more to come next year. Pics to follow but there is spectator footage already on You Tube - (Andy, we're about 1:00 in on the clip)
  19. Did anyone else get in? Pictures to follow.....
  20. David, of Fastlane car show fame, is organising a more focused show in Newcastle city centre. On Saturday and Sunday 11th/12th July Grey Street, and the Monument, will be closed to traffic for the show to take place. Whilst it's open to all to visit, you have to apply if you wish to show your car as it's limited for space. In particular he would be happy with a couple more Esprits on display. That's not to say other Lotus applications wouldn't be accepted. I've attached the entry form. If you wish to apply please fill in and e-mail or send to Dave at; [email protected] David Harding The Crown Inn Humshaugh Hexham Northumberland NE46 4AG Newcastle Show Entry Form.pdf
  21. Good turnout folks, nicely done
  22. So my neighbour David (Esprit S4S), new member Maurice (Europa S), me (Esprit V8), and my back up entourage (Volvo estate, partner, kids and dogs) all met up at the local farm cafe on a sunny, showery, chilly Saturday in May. And off to the Hexham Fastlane Show we trundled. The new venue proved to be ideal, although the logistics and directing of which marque goes where could have been better and I didn't feel there were as many exotic vehicles there as in previous years (or perhaps the site is just more compact). Still there was plenty on view from Porsche, Lambo, Ferrari, TVR, Chevy, et al. Land Rover and Range Rover had their place as did the "baseball cap backwards", hot hatch mob hidden in the back lot. There were plenty of Loti, mostly Elises, and some rarer models such as the 340R brought by dealer LotusNewcastle. We chatted with the owner and his mechanics and were impressed with their enthusiasm for the brand. There was live music from a band, plus the usual automotive gear, refreshments, and charity stalls. All in all a very enjoyable show; credit to organiser Dave, and his team. The weather was reluctantly just about acceptable this year, and I think the show will improve now they have the measure of the site. I'm already looking forward to next year!
  23. Yes, it's nearly that time of year again.... As we all know it's going to rain on Saturday the 16th of May, so David from the Fastlane show has promised hard standing for all registered cars. As with previous years there's no charge for registering, or turning up in something tasty. Otherwise there's a charge for public entry to the show on the gate. If you can, let me know if you're thinking of attending so I can book space on the Lotus stand. Pm me, or post here your name, model of Lotus, and reg no. As usual we will be meeting at Brocksbushes cafe (NE43 7UB), just outside Corbridge, mid morning for those who wish to convoy in....
