Love the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud...I think that was the last GREAT RR design.

I had the (virtually identical) Bentley version (S1) up until around 10 years ago as my weekend and family car. Lazy 4.9 litres, straight six - it had some really nice features for a 50's car too - switchable rear shocks (normal/sports mode), power brakes (via a small flywheel on the propshaft IIRC) and a third 'pedal' that lubricated all the suspension and steering bushes with one push from the driver.

Still think your Esprit takes the prize for the prettiest Russ. :blush:

Do like the flatnose as well though. B)

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Hey Russ, what ever happened to the Charlotte Area Lotus Enthusiasts club ?

Chuck - My last laptop ate its hard drive and I lost all the contact information. Since Bibs was kind enough to start a geographically specific area, I propose we use that to organize outings. I already started a thread there and will be adding another one shortly with contact information on a HIGHLY recommended local shop to have work done on our cars.
