  1. So, just to say, what with the delay to freedom and all, that the plan is to still have the meet on 25th July (week after Silverstone GP). For those of us going to Goodwood, we're still waiting for clarification and that may become a thing, but I doubt it will affect us. Awesome. Looking forward to it.
  2. So that's you and me, Barry, at least 😁
  3. So, let's go firm on Sunday 25th Jul, for 1000hrs. Recommend that we meet again at Coco's Cafe (which will be open this time), and maybe over a brew, chat through options for a run out. Pass the word. Be nice to chat in not terrible rain (hopefully) and with a buttie and a brew.
  4. So I wasn't gonna go to Goodwood FOS. Bit far and all just to see the Emira whizz past, but then Lotus announced that they are this year's central theme/advertiser/interactive thingy wotsit, and I decided that I can't not do this year if Lotus are doing many things. I can always not go next year! So, I'm ticketed for the 8th and I've booked myself into the West supercar park 😁. Am excited. Took the car to Silverstone and back today, which turned into a great fun drive. Every kind of road (and road user) and just sublime. Man, I love my car! This coming Wednesday morning (2nd Jun), I'm going to head over to Caffeine and Machine and check it out. I think the cross-country journey could be pretty awesome. Which brings me to - next meet, and I'm thinking something like w/e of 24/25 Jul ??? Local, like Coco's, or a drive to something like C&M (or similar). It's the weekend after the GB GP. What do we think?
  5. It's been so long since I've seen an S4 up close and plastic that I'd forgotten just how much presence they have. Following Robin's car away; it's quite an imposing sight. Awesome fun way to spend a few hours, despite the weather. Next time, with sunshine and sarnies 🌞
  6. That was awesome! We need to do it again.
  7. Am still excited. Drove mine to Gloucester and back yesterday and it was proper torrential. Esprit handled it without issue and even the windscreen wiper has started seriously thinking about being an actual full time windscreen wiper now. Like every time time I ask (it really wasn't interested before).
  8. I'd be amazed if Caterham don't take this option, assuming the platform can be electrified without further modification expense (which would negate the point of buying it in the first place).
  9. It is, that’s true. Epoxy paint, you could bleed out and it’ll wipe down in a jiffy.
  10. My advice - go white and with plenty of light. Don't worry about all that other stuff.
  11. Not all cars become timeless classics. The Esprit, I think, has. The Evora, I do not think, will. Sorry, but I just don’t think it made it. Great car, but not a great car.
  12. More likely, he's gonna take an Emira, remove the body and the engine and the chassis, and replace them with stuff from the back of his garage, and charge much lira for it. I think that's what Ant and Jenson are planning too, maybe. Only Dany is a God.
  13. Try Tomorrow's Classics. Nick may well still have the HV removed from mine.
  14. Oh... my golly gosh And that was all real footage, right? No CGI.
