  1. It was a pleasure meeting you and Gina and although it was a sad day for me I take comfort from the fact that the car has gone to a true Lotus enthusiast. I look forward to following your exploits with the car and hopefully meet up at an event in the future. Enjoy.

    Im interested in a GTE, and see that No8 is on Autotrader, but nowhere else including here, is it actually for sale Brian?  Tried sending you a message but says you cannot receive them.



    Hi Ade,

    Yes still for sale, I'm not sure why you can't message me. I will PM you.

    Was it you that contacted me through Autotrader yesterday about the my Reg No F110 TUS?

    Is this still running? keen to get the car out this year assuming we can escape lockdown! 

    Yes, it's still there but not a lot of activity on it. If PM me your mobile I can add you to the group. Hopefully we will get back in our cars after lockdown.

  4. I used Protek in Bathgate for a spray job on my Esprit and was very impressed with them. I have also used Roden Motors in Broxburn for a Pearlescent Paint job on my X5. They were recommended to me by Aston Martin Edinburgh and did a job job too.

    PROTEK in Bathgate would be my "go to" and they have lost of Lotus experience.


    Lots of Lotus experience.

    Hoffman's have one of the factory cars up at 89k iirc.

    Edit, well they did have. Give them a call ask if it sold. Think it was Lhd. A Rhd would be worth more imo.

    I think that one was sold at auction late last year on but it doesn’t show up on the results page so no idea what it sold for.


  6. My understanding is that it is the fact that the word LOTUS has been replaced by the word LEGS which makes it distorted. To use the new Lotus Logo we would need to have a trade mark licence from Lotus to use it. I thought it best to take down the distorted logo and in the short term replace it with a Saltire.

    @C8RKH Andy, I think if you were to distort the PORSCHE logo by replacing that word with another e.g. PORKER, the folks in Stuttgart would have something to say about it.

    Intellectual property is a big thing to large corporations.

    In my business many years ago one of my Managers used the Superman Logo in one of his promotional mail shot leaflets. Universal Pictures were right on the case and threatened legal action if we continued to use it. We had to pay them compensation of £1 for our misdemeanour. Not a lot of money, it was more about the unauthorised use of their intellectual property.

  7. Hi Andrew,

    I am not sure given the restrictions in Scotland on meeting up with other households that we can organise a meet this weekend.

    Here is a copy of an email I received from Ed Foster at The Rhynd Cafe near Leuchars. Nothing to stop folks from going out for a drive independently and stopping by for a coffee and bacon butty! :driving:Weather dependent I may go out for a drive around Fife on Sunday morning.. 🙂 🍔


    Hope you're well, and getting through lockdown OK. As you might have guessed, with current restrictions, we can't officially organise Bacon and Brakes this Sunday morning. However, it's been amazing to see so many of you over recent months pop by in something interesting to get some breakfast, coffee or lunch! 
    I'll be there on Sunday morning, and the Impala is back on the road, so will pop down in that. 
    Hopefully see lots of you there – the weather looks like it's improving!
