    Get your motor out's too good to be sat about.

    Usually Bibs yes...but it hasn't stopped raining for three days! At least I know what an escarpment is now! Andy A, it's the original one, no protection whatsoever...I got caught out a couple of weeks ago in a really heavy was like sitting in the bath!

    Where is everyone?

    I'm still here...still got the Exige, and I bought a KTM X-Bow last I allowed to say that?!
  4. Ok great. Orange cars are the best!! Anyway this prom run is all sorted now.
  5. No problem Erik. Enjoy your trip. Nice motor...where are you based in North Devon?
  6. Hi guys, I need a massive favour from the south-west branch A friend of mine needs 3 Lotus cars to take her son and two of his mates to their school prom on the 6th July. I was going to come down in the Exige as it's his favourite car but due to medical reasons/DVLA it's now not possible. Ideally we'd need one Exige and 2 others but any models would be great!! The pick-up point at 7pm is: 11 Greatfield Road, Plymouth, Devon, PL3 6QQ and they are going to Boringdon golf club, Plymouth! I'd be eternally grateful for any help with this. Thank you in advance. Hippo ?
  7. Hey DJW, great looking X-Bow you have there! Yeah that's the fella...or Kev as I like to call him! ? its quite quiet on that forum...I had one or two technical questions that I was going to ask...?
  8. Finally got the pics through...
  9. There's a speed limit on the motorway? I'll post up some pics when I get them from my sister...
  10. Huge thanks to Martin and Mark for tonight, the lads really enjoyed the cars...and arriving in style!! My sister and I really appreciate the effort you both put in for this one...great job!
  11. Great news...thanks for the effort you've put into this guys, I know it's a bit of a pain
  12. Yeah...are you familiar with that kind of thing?
  13. Appreciate your efforts Martin Mark, do you think you'll be able to make this...? One of the Exige guys has just pulled out due to work commitments and I can feel the panic coming on!
  14. Guys, just to give you a heads up on timings etc for Friday if you can still help out... The prom venue is Beamish Hall (DH9 0YB). If we can leave Washington services southbound in convoy at about 6pm. It's about a 5 minute drive to my sisters house in Rickleton (NE38 9JA). Leave there about 6.20-6.30 for Beamish. If anyone fancies a run out afterwards to the Derwent Manor, I'm buying!
  15. Not it an Esprit thing?
  16. Waving is good...but meeting on the Southbound side is better!
  17. Ok slight change in the timing on this...we wouldn't need to leave Washington services until 6pm, not sure if that helps much?
  18. Bibs, Patsy is no shrinking violet the words of one disgruntled Scottish traffic cop, she is 'ludicrously loud' 125dB sounds like just the ticket Martin...!! I'd love to hear that :) Mark, I's a stupid time, I wouldn't have be able to do if I hadn't taken time off work.
  19. Guys, I was wondering if I could ask a favour from an Esprit owner, or indeed any local Lotus's my sister's son's prom on Friday 20th June and she has asked if I could possibly arrange some Lotus cars to take 5 young lads from her house in Washington to Beamish Hall at about 5.30pm so they can arrive in style. I already have a couple of Exiges, and an Elise but I'd really love an Esprit or two If anyone has some free time next Friday and can come to Washington Services at about 5 - 5.15pm I'd be really grateful. Thanks Hips
  20. V8 I think, reg ***MCH...stunning! I miss mine...
