Time to revive this thread ! ! !     In the spring of 2011, Patty and I were fortunate to have LEFty. . .      These are the highlights of the pictures we took one cold and sunny day:

Awesome!!!

Bibs, if there is nobody in line next, I wouldn't mind sowing him some more of Charlotte while he is in the realtive area. If not, no biggie, I understand he has other places to see :)

As 'he' does not stop on his world tour to visit the JCR'08. What is with meet some "Krauts" end of may ?! The LCD does have an Berlin-Event gathering this time. And i can show him some historic-political places, right for a spy car... .

Great news that LEFty is with you Mark.

I must say that I am really intrigued by his visit and keen to see some pics. 'Medicine Hat, Alberta' is the coolest name for a town I have ever heard!

Great shots! It looks like better weather than the time I was in the Great White North. Still doing the low rider thing at the rear I see :sick: .

Where is Lefty is off to next? It would be great to get him in Sweet Home Alabama in time for the Barber race in July! there will be a good number of old Lotus race cars there to get photos with...

I've just sat here and read this entire post. Bibs, if it can be worked out, if I end up going to Melbourne to look at the '89 I'm considering, LEFty could get to WA, fly with me to Melbourne, tool around in the mountains on a test drive, and then fly back to WA with me. That might be a fun trip for him. Just the timing might be awkward.

Can't remember who said it, but there was a suggestion that LEFty bent his axle while in the Kylie Pass in NZ. Shouldn't that have straightened his axle? :rolleyes:

What a great thread - lego men had me P*ss*ing my sides......

If Lefty is up for it and available, he can get a big service @ Bell and Colvill, and he's got a seat in a 2-Eleven for a two week jaunt in a 2-Eleven down to Spain; he's worthy of a lap round Ascari.

Car leaves 12th June........

Love the album Bibs, great to have all the pictures in one place.

Towards the end of the year how about someone compiling a 'Best Of LEFty's Travels' calander that we could download, print out and then hang on the wall to enjoy through 2009? With a couple of pictures per month we could see LEFty at his best in quite a few locations!

There must be suitable calander templates to download somewhere on the web.
