  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hi Andy - I think this covid thing has stopped us all. I have just restarted work on my 71 Europa - lots done so far but it was a complete basket case - need to finish off some mechanics and started to prep body for paint. I need to get hold of the ral/paint code for the Lotus Europa red.
  3. Well since my subscription has auto renewed, I thought I'd better check out what's happening here. And...Nothing. Wow. Okay, well, I'm still here. Lotus still in the garage which needs a ramp to get it out without scraping off the front bumper. Maybe this year? Hmmm. Is that an itch I'm feeling, or just an errant flea from the dog ratching in my underpants...
  4. Well, I can't see me using it for quite a while; make me an offer!
  5. Yeah, get your motor out or sell it to me.......... Please
  6. Get your motor out's too good to be sat about.
  7. Ah yes, suffer for your heart's desires. You're in good company 'round here!
  8. 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 was like sitting in the bath!
  9. Well I had to look that one up. Which version is it? And do you have any dry clothes?
  10. Shouldn't you be on an escarpment @Hippo?
  11. I'm still here...still got the Exige, and I bought a KTM X-Bow last I allowed to say that?!
  12. Hi Martin, Good to know you're still about! @ Mark; and you too, Loose Cannon!
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. Yeah but it would be the end of a beautiful relationship with the in laws!
  16. Don't leave it sat doing nothing. The turbos will fall off and it will sulk
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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)
  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]
  21. 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
