  1. Hi Mike Hes not on here but is on Autobahnstormers, thanks for you comments on the car, I wont be going to Haynes soon as i go back to work before the next one. I will give you a shout when i next go and maybe you can come up to look around it.
  2. I know its not Lotus but just wanted to let you know the sale of the Lotus Carlton was not in vain, i got something rather decent. Its V12 Vantage S, with a few options.

    My new purchase after the Carl67398999_2523895117631319_6268288946405376000_n.thumb.jpg.a43340f206417f4cb1ca0bbc0707f001.jpg67600975_367951440812459_1068751986830082048_n.thumb.jpg.7221baaa2504694fa280702cb819099f.jpg67741823_457540514796348_3736033201424957440_n.thumb.jpg.8d2ecf0261f818a8f551308bbe66dda9.jpg67808043_403029623660261_5692438835372228608_n.thumb.jpg.7fe7e570afb9e867d7a2e565f10688e7.jpgton went to Bournemouth

      Stunning looking Vantage, great colour combo Martin!  Looks like the V12?  Got to be everyone's dream that car.  Hope its good to you.  Enjoy!

  4. Thanks Mike Im sad that its going as its a lovely car but i have another itch to scratch and i wont have another opportunity to do it, I will be moving away from Lotus sadly, but onwards and upwards, as they say.
  5. SOLD----------SOLD----------SOLD It didnt hang around long at that price and it wasnt expected to either.
  6. Just put a standard house brick under the throttl;e pedal. I claimed my first ever three points in it two years ago (first time in 38 years of driving), i was driving at 50 in a 50 limit, in top gear, and coming into a 30 limit village, i even saw the copper, so i eased off the throttle but as i was in 6th gear and its so long, the damn car just didnt slow down quick enough. He got me at 36 in a 30. I blame Lotus for making top gear so long/high.
  7. Yes i totally agree they need to be shown, out on the roads.
  8. Thanks Barry, I feel it is a bargain too as i have priced it to sell, i really dont want it to hang around too long, i have scratched an itch and now i have an itch somewhere else. Its a drivable car too not like the very low milers around at the moment that owners are scared to take out or even put any more miles on them.
  9. Advert now on PistonHeads, here; https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/vauxhall/carlton/vauxhall-lotus-carlton-1993/9842332
  10. I shall be putting my Lotus Carlton up for sale tomorrow, more details with pictures to follow in 24 hours.
  11. Its been for sale at that price for over a year now, the old saying that a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it is pretty much true with this example.
  12. And this Lotus Omega made £36.5k http://www.silverstoneauctions.com/opel-lotus-omega
  13. I understand the low mileage one that was up for sale (42k miles, i think) reached £58k but not its reserve so didnt sell, however the owner is now willing to drop his expectations......obviously a little too hopeful. Not sure how the other two got on. Just an update, this one made £29.6k http://www.silverstoneauctions.com/vauxhall-lotus-carlton-13765
  14. This one has been on PH for a few weeks now, then suddenly on Monday or Tuesday it popped up on Ebay for auction, it started at £100 and quickly got up to £25k then sat there for a couple of days then went up to £30.1k, as i put a "watch" on it, last night i got an email to say that it was no longer available, it still had 5 days to run and was also still under the reserve. I can only assume that it has been bought privately and taken off the market even though the advert on PH os still there, listed at £75k. Maybe someone knows more about this sale.
