  1. What is the registration number so that the history can be looked up?
  2. Thanks for this. I have seen the one at Hethel showing the Elan, +2 & Europa. Are there any other Cheshunt videos?
  3. I have come across a 1975 Elite with a P prefix paint code. This predates the pearlescent white from 1984 so it doesn't relate to a pearlescent paint finish. If you have a Elite or Eclat with a paint code different from the normal L prefix, please can you contact Andy Graham @ Lotus with the VIN and paint code. [email protected] Thanks Andy
  4. Am I missing something here as this event is not listed on the Brooklands website? I don't have a Lotus, but is it possible to still attend?
  5. If you contact Andy Graham at Lotus Archives you can purchase the certificate which will tell you how the car left the factory. email [email protected]
  6. I take it you have tried clubs like Pontiac Owners Club? There are lots of US car clubs and magazines here in the UK for advise on this side of the pond if no-one in the US can help.
  7. Is it right the colour scheme of the Bandit car was inspired by the 'JPS' Lotus?
  8. That could because there never was a liner recal.
  9. What interior is in the Vanguards? Is it the early two-tone one like Spark, or the later single colour version?
  10. Does anyone have any Motor Show pictures they can share? It would be great if we could get a photo reference of each year.
  11. I don't get why Lotus is always compared to Porsche. To me Porsche is nothing more than a performance brand under the VW umbreller the same as Skoda is the budget brand, the Seat the fashion brand, Audi the upmarket brand and VW the quality car for the masses. Porsche build 4x4 & sedans. Kimbers perhaps you can confirm, Porsche aren't hand built like Lotus either?
  12. You need a 2001 Mustang. Pull out two metal rods and the whole headlamp & indicator assembly lifts out. The quickest and easiest headlamp i've replaced.
  13. It doesn't get much of a role, you just see the white Excel infront of the posh house. Has the Excel made any other TV programmes?
  14. I like how you get your car wink (one headlamp only up) in picture 32.
  15. I thought the Gulf States cars had a extra auxiliary A/C unit?
  16. What date was the last car built at Cheshunt does anyone know?
  17. As the car is not manufactured for the European market, there may not be a European CoC for it so you may have to get a SVA. Try contacting [email protected] they should be able to tell you if there is certification for your car.
  18. Why would a UK car leave the production line with US bumpers? Are you sure they weren't changed after production?
  19. E-mail Andy Graham at the Lotus Archives, he'll check the build details for you. [email protected] and write a letter as necessary.
  20. That second one looks like Essex blue?
  21. I have a sealed Elite wet wipe, and seen a can of Lotus Racing air by Lotus Sales from the 70s
  22. Is your car a '87 build or '87 registered? Have you contacted the factory? see
  23. Was there just one Espionage also?
