Recommended Posts

LEFty is carefully wrapped and will be entering a Post Box tomorrow heading you're direction Kylie.

Ok, first set of pictures of LEFtys arrival in Auckland. As you can see it arrived in style, when only the best will do!

We pressed the button and down came the loading ramp, OMG there she was looking stunning in yellow. We eased her out and proceeded to unload her down the ramp.

Clearance was a bit tight at the rear and the front so we found a ramp to add.

LEFty was out and she met a kiwi V8 Esprit they were best mates by the end of the night.

i thougt Lefty has got her wheel problem fixed ??

Kylie, as you are actually involved in "some servicing" - do what you can to hold her on the road :D

nice shots , and i think Lotus owners all have those special kind of fine humor. Well done friends!

:) perhaps it does get a hammering in transit, I could find it a small plastic box with a blanky...?

Good idea!! -as long as it is not suspectet as *mysterious secret package* and banned from international transport. Big-Brother is allways watching you in modern days...! B)

More pics..... :) We went over to see the progress on LEFtys big brother this morning which is about 40mins drive from home, so on the way there I took a detour to down town Auckland along the water front to show LEFty the sights.

I showed lil LEFty the Americas Cup boat sheds in the viaduct where all the action and drama is. Not to mention some private ships!!

Great pics Kylie, how is his suspension? Do you think the garage may be able to help?

His suspension is not in good shape but still manages to dart across the dining table just fine. Its got a slight pull to right :)

The garage just might be able to help there :)

Ian I am pretty sure its a Triumph, he has a thing for them and its been in there for quite a while now. He's got some interesting bits and pieces in there and always worth a look to see whats new in there.

He looks after DeLoreans, Lambo, Lotus, Alfa, new and historic racing cars etc. But youll mainly find Lotus's being worked on nine times out of 10. :)
