  1. Well, if your set on a Lotus specialist, there's always in LA and way up near Santa Rosa. Check out the list on the JAE site or give Jay a call there for other suggestions. Harry @dsvitesse1 may still be good to bounce off of as he would know if there are any subtle differences in the SM application that a Lotus specialist would need to know. Chances are they may already be getting some/most/all of their tranny parts from him. I assume you've already checked out your Maserati sources as the Merak shared the powertrain with the SM.
  2. Is Citroen Classics no help or now defunct? SM World was a big loss. A PM to Harry @dsvitesse1 on here might yield who he sends parts to on the west coast. Good luck in your quest.
  3. I just knew being in the SAS would've been fun. What could be better than tear-assing across the desert in a jeep but tear-assing across the desert in a jeep to blow things up!
  4. Unfortunately, and as with all things, the lawyers and insurance companies will get involved. Only a matter of time until someone gets into a crash or rear-ends another car with the active braking disengaged and the insurance company refuses to pay regardless of fault. It's all being recorded in the electronic bits now whether we like it or not.
  5. "Leveling up" just sounds like a new name for "Delorean.'" 🤷‍♂️
  6. Coincidentally, this helmet in similar livery just sold for a nice penny.
  7. Another vote for heater core. At the factory, they apparently started with one, then built the car around it.

  9. Not the kind of oil you want dribbled on your salad. It has to drip. It's a Lotus. 🤷‍♂️

  12. Beautiful car and great price. But some of the prices on BAT defy description and don't necessarily get repeated.
  13. You could have it in a heart beat but it would cost you a kidney! Definitely looks ace in that livery. One thing I'm curious about, though, is that I love Emmo and all and he seems to be everywhere around Lotus these days, but am I missing something? There was another WC in JPS livery since Emerson. Is it mutual or is Mario just too busy making wine and trying to buy an F1 team to get involved?
