LEfty, the worlds smallest but most travelled Esprit!

Recommended Posts

Great photos,

 

I think I recognised every one of those views from a great holiday about 2 years ago so it brought back good memories.  All ours are without a Lotus in the foreground however.

 

Cheers,

Al.

If you want him in Kazakhstan in a couple of weeks time get him sent over, he will be going via Amsterdam, Atyrau then Devils Island. I promise not to feed him the the Wolf who visit's us during the winter freeze.

Pity he wasn't back before I left, he could have been out on the frozen sea with me. If he come back from Vegas in time send him on and I can take him on a trip to Atyrau first week February and I can honestly say he WILL be the only Lotus in the country.

Rather than jetting him off to exotic (or cold) locations, the idea is to use the little car to give us an insight into where you are, your life etc. If you're up for that, pop me an address and I'll forward it to Vin for posting him on :)

Hi Bibs, you can send him up to me if you like, I am due home in a couple of days so he will get a short trip to Amsterdam then Kazakhstan and of course D Island, this would be a good time actually as this may be my last trip to the Island.

So where is the Gold icon now then.

 

As Bibs mentioned LEFty is now in Bethel PA.  The reason for this is that LEFty will be appearing at the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey PA for their special exhibit which I am curating Lotus: The Art of Lightness - http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/70801-lotus-the-art-of-lightness-aaca-museum-special-exhibit/

 

LEFty will spend the duration of the exhibit in a display case with some other models.  I'll let him out for my annual LotusPALS Winter Stress Reliever and before off to the next locale.

Lotus the Art of Lightness has now opened and LEFty is now ensconced amongst a bunch of 1:18 models in a display case with one of the Lotus galleries.  LEFty will stay for the duration of the exhibit.
