  1. TR8 side view for you. …and of course this being the USA, a rather small pickup truck as well 😬
  2. Yes I am out here for Car Week like most years. Sadly I won’t be at the Quail to see the Emira. I will certainly post anything interesting I might come across though!
  3. Some more vintage motors on show for Monterey Car Week. Europa’s on show and the usual 66 Elan… though I didn’t post a snap of the Elan as it was the same from previous years. Sadly I won’t be at the Quail for the Lotus Emira launch.
  4. Some more cars from Car Week today… USA Spec Elise in the mix.
  5. As I try to do every year, here are some of the rare/exotic/interesting cars that show up at americas premiere historic car event. Happy to say the first rare car I come across on day one is a Lotus Evora USA spec. I’ll update as the week goes…
  6. She lives inside a single car garage of course! I've never understood why anyone would park a valuable car outside long term. I've always thought that if you can't bother to protect it, you shouldn't own it. I used to live in an expensive bit central London until recently, and would see Bentleys, Rolls, Ferrari, Astons and other new rare and VERY expensive cars that just lived outside on the street. Door dings, scrapes, bird crap, snow, ice on them all the time. Treating their cars like a decade old Mondeo. I moved out to the edge of London just so I could afford to rent a flat with a garage so I could get my little Elise. I would never have left her out on the road overnight.
  7. https://elise.bidouille.info/docs/LotusEliseS1-ServiceManual.pdf
  8. Its marmite I know, but still my favourite cockpit of any car! Esprit S1. (note: not my car or photos)
  9. 1968 Plymouth Barracuda 1983 VW Scirroco 1989 Jeep Wrangler 2000 Lotus Elise
  10. Elise wins the race. I expected nothing less. 🏁
  11. This video tells you all you need to know about the origins of the Elise.
  12. Blue Elise (S2?) in Edinburgh Old Town on King George Bridge Saturday at around 3pm. Handling the frozen cobbles well.
  13. I'd really like to see this new bike go in a head to head race with the Type 108 on the track. Is it 25% faster being 25 years newer?
  14. More crazy cars from today in Monterey.
  15. Last images from today. Hope y’all enjoy.
  16. So I’m back for another Monterey Car Week in Northern California. As in previous years I’ll post a few pictures of the exotics and rarities of the four wheel variety for your viewing pleasure. A selection from this morning...
  17. I have no connection to this link but a quick web search comes up with this.... https://www.bookaclassic.co.uk/lotus-esprit-s4-22-turbo-x180-cambridgeshire/
  18. Grr! I’m in Monterey for much of car week as usual, but won’t be around for the last weekend when the Evija is shown. So close; yet so far!
  19. I’m not sure why an ex F1 driver would pick a poor mans 911 over an Elise. ...at least the Stig knows a proper car! 🤷🏼‍♂️😡
  20. My Elise S1 is now registered as exempt. Just took the V5c and the Certificate of Conformity to prove. Just a shame that is has to be done on a individual basis....
  21. Certainly a very sad ending and my thoughts go out to the family. Sadly, not the best restoration I’ve seen on the show. Being an S1 owner myself of course this was the car I’d been waiting for them to do up on the show someday. Maybe it was down to the time constraints, but they didn’t seem to take the care and attention to detail they’ve shown on other cars in the show? Lots of incorrect parts ... and that grill! 😬
  22. This seems to be the contact info at Lotus to request a copy of the CoC. CONTACT FOR: Certificate of Conformity for cars from 1997 EMAIL: [email protected] 8:15 - 17:15 GMT Monday to Thursday | 8:15 - 12:15 GMT Friday https://www.lotuscars.com/about-us/contact-us
  23. Finally got round to getting my 70th event poster framed proper like. In Lotus Racing Green!
  24. Just search “Lotus Hethel” on a search engine and lots come up, like:
