  1. Hi, Do you know of any good lotus restoration shops in NE. USA I'm considering buting a 73 elan sprint that may need some exterior/interior work

  2. I still have it and can send it anywhere you want, with the display sheet from the museum that lists the locations where it has been.
  3. THe car at the bottom of the last ad (which is the LOG 36 event poster) is an Evora 410. I totally agree with your assessment of modern ads. THey are sometimes fun and visually beautiful, but don't have the depth of those presented in the book. The ads in the book are unique. They present a visual image with impact, have a tag line that draws you into them and ad copy that is both humorous and descriptive. That is why I think Lotus collectors treasure them so much. The ad copy of the originals was written by a man by the name of Jim Bottomly (we could not track him
  4. I am glad you liked it Snoopy. WHen I contacted JOn Dahlstrom a few years ago about doing the event poster for LOG 36 (last entry in the book - I hope it compares favorably to the originals) the idea of collating the entire collection of ads in a book popped into my head. After all there are people out there who collect them. From there, convincing WIlliam Taylor to produce and publish was fairly easy. Thanks for the positive feedback.
  5. Glad you guys like the concept. It was rolling around in my head for a few year, but when I enlisted Jon to do the artwork for the LOG 36 event poster that replicates the format and tenor of the original ads it was the impetus to put it all together. It is a bit of a boutique project, but I think it is of value in the world of documentation and collection of Lotus advertisment history. And it is nice to look at. Spread the word!
  6. And here is a review: BOOK REVIEW Dahlstrom: The Lotus Adverts I have a confession to make. I’m a big Jon Dahlstrom fan and I have three of his ads hanging framed in my Lotus garage for years. There, I said it, I’m biased. He’s a fantastic artist, gifted in the art of simplicity that is captivating and tells a story. His drawings and the headline were enough to capture you. Who needed the copy (although truth be told it was well written). When Kyle Kaulback told me he was thinking about creating a book in collaboration with Jon and William Taylor

  8. Dahlstrom: The Lotus Adverts A Coterie Press Book Concept and Text: Kyle Kaulback Illustrations: Jon Dahlstrom From 1963 through 1965 Bob Challman’s Ecurie Shirlee concern ran a series of advertisements in Road and Track featuring illustrations by Jon Dahlstrom and ad copy by Jim Bottomly. The advertisements have become an iconic part of Lotus’ advertising history and are prized pieces of Lotus ephemera. Coterie Press, coincident with Jon Dahlstrom’s appearance at Lotus Limited’s 36th Annual Lotus Owners Gathering (LOG36), will release a Limited First Edition of
  9. From my Lotus COncept Cars and One-offs Blog on LotusPALS Bertone Emotion 1991 Bertone's studio did a non running concept on the Esprit chassis in 1991 called the Bertone Emotion. At the time there were rumors that the concept was originally a proposal for the Bugatti EB110 which was declined and then converted to a Lotus concept in the hopes that Lotus would use it as the next Esprit. The concept featured a speed dependent "variable attitude" aerofoil and flush glass all around the greenhouse. The Lotus 2.2 liter chargecooled engine was the proposed powerplant. The concept was sh

  11. LEfty has passport in hand and is ready for another trip. WHere to next?
  12. So I bought a Lotus Omega and need to get the AC running. The system is charged but still doesn't blow cold. I think the problem is the compressor. As far as I can tell the compressor is a standard GM Europe unit not specific to the Lotus version and originally fit to the Omega A , but not the subsequent Omega B platforms. The newer models are fairly easy to find on internet sales sites, but older units are proving harder to source. The Unit has a GM logo on it but is branded Harrison and has model number 1135046 Any assistance in finding a source for replacement would be appreciat
  13. First. S2.2 cars are very rare so you have yourself an excellent candidate for restoration, and my personal preference is for originality (FWIW) I have not done an Esprit so I can't guide you on how to proceed with disassembly, but make sure you photodocument and label everything as you disassemble so when it is time to put it back together you have some kind of reference. The manuals you seek are readily available, I do not have a site immediately on hand to refer you to, but it shouldn't be too hard to find using Google and there are a lot of Esprit people here who probably can be mo
  14. Interesting. I wonder if that number includes the Europa S which was based on that platform as well. The 50,000th Lotus car made was an S2 M100 Elan in 1995 ( - go halfway down page). With 40k Elise/Exige having been made, a thousand or so Esprits since 1995, and 2500 or so Evora to date I wonder when the 100,00th car from Lotus will arrive?
  15. The museum is making a run of 100 22x28 posters of the event poster - $8.99 plus shipping - or buy it at the retail store in the museum.
