  1. Thank you Richard. I plan to join.
  2. These pics are amazing. I was probably around 7 years old when these pics were taken so difficult to identify dealers. Am trying to expand on any signs in pic but too blurry.
  3. Fantastic pics Keith, many thanks for sharing. The early pics from the days of chemical photography are so nice to look at, particularly when it comes to these cars as they look spectacular in their new and shiny glory. These 70’s colours are also seldom seen these days. Are you able to post the pics individually in better resolution?
  4. It’s so pleasing to see cars like this restored to such a high standard. It normally starts a process where others follow, the cars are appreciated and values rise. I commend you on your effort and it’s also a great tribute to Oli. I hope you get to enjoy it and look forward to hopefully seeing the car in the not too distant future.
  5. Sad news. Glad to have had the opportunity to have met the man. RIP Oliver.
  6. Very nice. You’ve come to the right place. That’s a lovely spec with colour and interior and it looks complete and original. It’s a lot of work but the reward is well worth it. I am sure it will end up being a beautiful looking car when finished. Good luck with it.
  7. And so a witness finally comes forward 😂
  8. What an absolutely stunning pic Soldave 👍🏻. It’s a classic car from the 70’s and the architecture is modern, yet the sharpness of the two go hand in hand. I think it just goes to show how advanced the design was from back in the day. Lotus were so forward thinking.
  9. So nice to see an early narrow body excel. Is that Ice blue? Spit looks great too...
  10. So nice to see a nice and original interior on an elite/éclat. It was designed by Guigiaro and exudes opulence.
  11. Good stuff Richard. As soon as I get some time I will get onto the case in getting something together. Incidentally Mike Taylor at Lotusbits has an offering. I have not seen his design but from what I understand it involves an alloy cast and works on a concentric cam principle. He has them made up and the couple of times I have asked he’s told me he is out of stuck so perhaps some of us here should get into the case and see what they involve and find out if he can have some made up.
