I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

My Dad came through his open-heart surgery successfully.

Looks stunning, interior looks new. Big Alfa fan after being a owner of a 147 GTA purchased new in 2004 and a great 2years motoring with not one fault in my ownership. One of the best car I have owned.

Saw my old Esprit while on holiday in Cornwall / Devon.  It's been for sale for the last 2 years in Saltash, Devon at William Crawford.  It looked lovely :)

Yep.  I've got a space in my garage now and I know the car like the back of my hand.

But wouldn't mind an S4s, but prices seem to have rocketed.

Really?

Lovely to see Julian @thebartmanwho visited Watford Exotics HQ today for a cuppa and a good chinwag.  He's incredibly enthusiastic about playing with his Esprit; I'm sure he'll have years of fun with it!  We'll be seeing him at Dave & Megan's in September.

That's the one that appeared fully rebuilt and featured in a recent Absolute Lotus mag. I remember the owner saying that it was a keeper and he couldn't see himself ever selling it. I guess things change and he had obviously spent a lot of time and money on it.

Just discovered our main builder 'Ben the Builder' used to work for Lotus at Hethel - he was responsible for specifying the glue on Elise chassis. Hopefully this is a good omen as to the kind of work we can expect from him - so far all is good and he is a really nice guy. More than can be said about out central heating fitters - the new oil lines are being replaced for the 2nd time this Friday and the garage door people - Arghh!

Anyway he has been warned about you lot so will pass any questions anyone may have for him 🙂

Ooo - Maybe when we eventually come to sell the farm we can advertise it as 'Engineered by Lotus' 😎

You do know the floors have a habit of falling out don’t you @march 🤪

After my eldests confirmation of place to study medicine - she has now been cleared by the medical screening staff to start this year rather than be deferred to next year due to covid. All seems a little last minute to me.

I'd be really worried if I were you, looks like a Morgan designer's work rather than Elise. There's no extruded ali, just wood*.

 

 

* I know, Morgans actually use steel chassis, just wood for the body but it's one of those factoids that Morgans use wood for chassis.

Really good mate off mine fell of a ladder yesterday - had a successful operation to put his bones back in the correct place in his hand today. He’s back out tonight and has just managed to scoff chips and curry 👍I’ve sent him a Rubik’s cube on amazon prime 😬

Give him sleepless nights too.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

He has a Lotus, if anything is going to cause him to be penniless I'd say it's that.

I’d assumed cider production/consumption was due to Lotus ownership.
