Autocar - back in 1988 when the car was new

An Encyclopaedia of Dream Cars - Coffee Table book

Esprit-Addiction for Life - DVD (Okay, so I made the film) still available from LEW & Club Lotus

Club Lotus - 50 Years in the Fast Lane - DVD (Okay, so I made that film too) still available as above

Club Lotus mag - cover pic (Okay, so I took the pic)

Probably many other publications as it was a Press car for the first year of its life.

I hereby apologise in advance for the shameless plugs.

0100G has not made it into any mags that i know of :crybaby: but plenty of them list it in their "Chassis numbers run from 0100G to ...." sections.

I guess there was the pic in the lotus magazine if that counts but it could be any red S1.

Hi Mike - That'll be OVU 84W - thats Pauls Essex #17.................Its also in the foyer at Hethel on the wall...............

Pauls had that car in C&SC twice (I think?!) Once against a 308 QV and another for a Esprit feature with others from here.

My car was in a Motoring Weekly of its time (it was the early 90's!) thats no longer in print - was listed the week I bought the car on a dealer feature/Esprit Buyers Guide which mentioned the car as being worth the asking price - helped me decide to purchase - think it was called AutoWeek? Must dig out my scanner and add............

My old N/A - I definately cant say featured but I can say 'spotted' in pics in 4 differant Classic and Sports Car mags - (even this month again on page 180 - think pic was originally taken by Cliff) There is a 'forum feature' that happens to be LEF this month.

50 years of Club Lotus DVD - seen on two separate occations on Castle Combe track.

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