  1. Well done #torbay a nice dramatic end to the day #nofilter #devon

  2. @AndyBreare roll on summer

  3. A cracking day and great to see so many familiar faces again....I feel soooooo gutted I don't have my car any more ....but freshly resolved that I will be back in a lotus again soon. although not if I have too many more of those fine burgers

  7. Look forward to seeing you Ian. We have over 200 vehicles registered now and the lovely guys from SW Lotus Centre are bringing some cars too. Let's hope for some sunshine too
  8. Morning all! On August 14th its the annual BBC Radio Devon Car Rally on Plymouth Hoe. Its an event that celebrates motoring of all sorts from sports cars to tanks and normally has several hundred attendees. The sad thing is that in all its years there has only been one solitary Lotus! a very early Europa about 10 years ago. There is a £10 donation to BBC Children in need and it would be great to fly the Lotus flag this year if anyone fancies coming to the best part of the country. If you are interested you can drop me a line or get a form directly from f[email protected] any questions please get in touch. R
  9. Doing a spot of music research for work Who'd have thought..... 19th Jan 1967 , The Beatles began recording 'A Day In The Life' at Abbey Road studios London, recording four takes of the new song. According to Lennon, the inspiration for the first two verses was the death of Tara Browne, the 21-year-old heir to the Guinness fortune who had crashed his Lotus Elan on 18 December 1966 in Redcliffe Gardens, London.
  10. The usual, I spent thousands fixing it up and making it run like a dream...then the money ran out and a baby arrived. I clung on as long as I could believe me
  11. careful, you're talking about about an Ex of mine!
  12. It is..... And I can confirm it was built in 95 but only registered in 96. It actually made me feel very strange seeing it again.... an actual physical jolt. very strange. At least I know its still alive
  13. Hi all was shown this at work and having seen loads of postings suffering from the problem, thought I would try and raise a smile with this
  14. The hardest decision to make.....its been a month or so since mine went and this is my first time back on here as it still hurts like hell. For me the economic necessity was what forced my hand but as with you it wont be my last Lotus.
  15. Its gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am now an EX Esprit owner again....and properly sad. The new owner Keith is a nice guy and I have pointed him this way so if you see "my car" pop up again he has promised to look after it.
  16. So...several months into the sale campaign and I still have my car! I have been using it as a daily for the past few days as the Landy failed the MOT and I have put a fair few unnecessary extra miles in just for the fun of it and I am reminded of 2 things. 1. just how great my car is 2. I am properly sad about having to sell it. I know it sounds daft almost getting emotional over a car when all common sense says "get rid!!" But there it is. A spell of dryness and sunshine in Devon, an open road and quite simply one of the most engaging drives I have ever owned. This is my third Esprit and when the previous 2 have gone I have not felt the same sense of losing a friend as with this one....maybe its cos of how much I have spent on it, but if anyone could give me this weeks winning lottery numbers it would really help
  17. Saw you just near Asda on the Bovey Tracey rd. I was in the Esprit that paused and waved next to you. Nice to see another Lotus round here. We are few and far between
  18. you can ask whatever you want for a car, but it doesn't mean its worth it or will S4s has been advertised for a month at under 19K and i have only had 1 enquirer! I could put it up for +20K but whats the point if no one is interested. There seem to be a few advertised in dealers for 25-30K at the mo but surely thats a dream?? ....maybe I should hang on till next spring, if I can sell a body organ in the mean time, and re advertise it at 25K.
  19. The best reaction I ever had was when I was with a former business partner who owned a DB9 and an elderly man came over and leaned in through the window and just said "this is absolutely beautiful, its a piece of automotive history" My colleague said don't you prefer this (pointing at the Aston) and the response was " oh no, they are as common as muck this still looks amazing!" It still makes me grin now!
  20. I am now officially sad
  21. 2 questions What is the "race tech" pack on an Elise S2 Is it worth any price premium someone tries to charge for it? Apparently as a factory option it was around £3k but as Manuel says "i know nothing"
