  1. Yes, #8 is a stunning car and I am the current owner.
  2. Great meeting and lovely breakfast. Thanks to @Andrew C for organising this.
  3. Brilliant idea, I'll be there with my bacon roll and coffee.
  4. Obviously tonight’s announcements mean that all breakfast meets for the foreseeable future are cancelled. Stay safe.
  5. @BigErch Archie Buchanan now has this car I believe.
  6. If you would like to be added to this group please PM your mobile number to me with your forum screen name please. I intend using this to advise LEGS members where our monthly breakfast meets are. This will not replace the Forum posts or the PM’s I send out. Some of you are not receiving email notifications so I thought the WhatsApp group would improve communication with LEGS members. Brian
  7. The March breakfast meet will be at Mannerstons near Linlithgow https://mannerstons.co.uk/find/. We have been here a few times and they serve a fantastic breakfast. It is the default location if nothing else organised as is the case this month. Meet at the usual time for 10:00am and please don’t wait for everyone to arrive before heading in for breakfast, they are usually quite busy so any tyre kicking and car park chat I would suggest is left until after breakfast. Unfortunately I won’t make this one as I will be on the piste! Have a good one and hopefully the weather will be kind. Brian
  8. Lotus Edinburgh website now up and running. Hopefully business as usual.
  9. Our second meet this year will be in the west at The Tea house on the Loch in Drumpellier County Park Tea House on the Loch Lochend Road G69 8BE Glasgow As it is still winter let's not go to far just in case there is any white stuff falling from the sky and this spot is just off the main roads. It is also dog friendly they do gluten free food all points covered. As always get your names down please just to help with catering.

  11. Sorry for the late notice on the change of venue from Mannerstons to The Rhynd Cafe near Leuchars for breakfast tomorrow. Usual time 10:00am to midday. We were there last month and the breakfast was fantastic and a good selection of cars attending, Lotus and other makes. Hopefully there won't be as much water on the road this week and if you left your email with the Cafe last month you will have had an update from them on their efforts to have the road improved. If I make it tomorrow (bit under the weather today) , I won't be in a Lotus as they are all SORN'd. Kind regards Brian
  12. It will be very interesting to see what Komo-Tec do with #20 and whether they will retail it or have they bought it on behalf of a customer. If the latter we might never know what the re-sale price is and the true value. It certainly won't be re-sold at £69k (circa. €80). What will the on the road costs be in Germany, will they have to charge VAT for example? £69k is not a true reflection of the value of this car or any of the original 20 GTE's produced by Lotus.
  13. I still own the car and it’s with this dealer on sale or return so if it doesn’t sell this time I will keep it.
  14. Good luck. You will obviously be looking for a LHD. Mine is #8 a RHD and is for sale here at this dealership.
  15. Well, you could have gone for this to avoid congestion charges.
  16. Andy Unfortunately I didn't take any photos. @Andrew C Andrew Laing posted a few on Lotus Ecosse Facebook. I suspect you don't do Facebook so here's a couple I have copied over. The breakfast was good but the venue a bit out of the way. Despite that and the weather, which was pretty terrible we had my Esprit V8, 4x Evoras, 1 Elise, and the only pre '78 car in our group, my cousin Mike's Elan +2, oh and not forgetting Andrew's McLEGS 570S. A good turnout.
  17. Thanks Duggie. It's a slow and very tiring process for Jackie's mum but she is recovering. See you Sunday. I am sure there will be a few pre 1978 drivers there.

    This venue was recently suggested by Andy @C8RKH further to a newspaper article in The Courier https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/lifestyle/motoring/news-motoring/990962/rhynd-cafe-near-leuchars-to-host-monthly-classic-car-driving-day/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook Despite most of our cars being post 1978 we are more than welcome if our cars are interesting, which they are. The cafe has a motoring theme and it would be good to see some classic cars there. So the next breakfast meeting will be at the usual time 10:00am - midday at The Rhynd Cafe near Leuchars, Postcode KY16 0DR https://www.therhynd.com If you have a pre 1978 car hopefully you can bring that along. I was originally unable to attend meetings in November and December as my wife Jackie and I were going to be away in Australia and New Zealand on holiday over this time, however, we had to abort the NZ leg of our trip as Jackie's mum suffered a stroke and is in hospital and we had to return to the UK. I will be at the Breakfast meeting with my very interesting Esprit V8 and hopefully I won't be the only interesting Lotus there. See you Sunday. Kind regards Brian @Al.

  20. I have now heard from Rhynd Cafe and although most of our cars are post 1978 they are happy for us to go along, the only criteria being that our cars are interesting. I would say they are so I will post up on the forum and send the group PM advising of this location for our next breakfast meeting.
  21. I was about to post up a reminder about the November 3rd Breakfast meet at the default location Mannerstons near Linlithgow when I saw this post. I was originally unable to attend meetings in November and December as my wife Jackie and I were going to be away in Australia and New Zealand on holiday over this time, however, we had to abort the NZ leg of our trip as Jackie's mum suffered a stroke and is in hospital and we had to return to the UK. I have contacted Rhynd Cafe to see if they will welcome post 1978 cars! I'm sure it will be OK as I don't think they will turn away business, but me being me I do like to check. I will send a group PM when I have heard and will post up on the Forum

  23. Sorry for being dim, but what is CC TVS 1900? My GTE is for sale here https://www.georgemackay.co.uk/used-cars/lotus-evora-3-5-vvt-i-v6-s-20-coupe-2dr-edinburgh-201902235229603 and although not mentioned in the advert, it has the Komo-tec upgrade to 430bhp
