  1. I’m there every Sunday from 9am till about lunchtime so just let me know when you’re coming. 

    As for the Excel in Sainsbury’s car park if it was Ice Blue and in the corner furthest from the door then yes it was. I work there and it is now my daily driver 😁

  2. Hi 

    I live just outside Newbury in Berkshire and we have had a new establishment open which might be of interest and a place to meet with your cars. 

    it’s called Podium Place

    It not only serves freshly roasted coffee and food, but also houses a selection of performance cars which can be purchased if you have some spare cash.

    There has been other car clubs that have met at this cafe and there is usually something interesting in the car park.

    I am a regular at the weekend with both my Excel and Esprit and would love to meet up for a coffee and chat if you are in the area. 



  3. Yes it was sad. I had so much fun driving her and meeting such genuine enthusiasts and great people from the forum.

    However being a woman it's now time to shop!!!

    Rest assured I will still be 'that woman who drives a blokes car', just a different make for a while (one with pas would be nice :) )

    However Lotus will always hold a special place in my heart and I'm sure I will not be able to stay away for long.

  4. As the title suggests I would like to sup at the collective and awesome fountain of knowledge that resides in this forum to help me decide what car next.

    My budget alas cannot stretch to another Lotus at the moment, besides I have scratched that 'itch'.

    I would like a car that is unusual, has more than 2 seats and has a boot. Unfortunately I have been spoilt by the power and performance of the Esprit and would like something comparable.

    Fickle I know but I am a female of the species.


  5. Pop quiz - what do I do?

    On the one side a chap from Australia is interested, father had an Esprit, want to use it as a daily runner.

    On the other side a chap who seems to have no clue about Esprits, is buying it for someone else.

  6. Hey PDF all those 'holes' you mention in Skyfall and you fail to mention that

    1. In TSWLM an Esprit cannot change into a submarine.

    2. In Moonraker even if you have steel teeth you don't have enough bite pressure to chew through a steel cable.

    3. All women in James Bond movies want to sleep with him.

    4. Bond turns Pussy Galore 'straight'

    5. In Die Another Day you cannot flip a car right side up with an ejector seat.

    6. How come Bond uses up all his gadgets before the end of the movie.

    7. How clarevoyant must Q be to give Bond the right gadgets?

    8. In Goldeneye how does his DB5 keep up with a Ferrari 355?

    9. How come all the villains know who Bond is, tell him their evil plot and don't shoot him while he is asleep/having an interlude with a lady/on the loo etc?

    Now that's Bond dealt with don't get me started on Back To The Future, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Star Wars etc.

    Oh no sorry I got it wrong. These clearly state, along with Skyfall that they are works of fiction.

    Otherwise they would be called documentaries, be very boring and on BBC 2 or Channel 4!!
