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.

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

Not with the superb one he’s got - @RobinB5 was smart enough not to buy a complete shitter and spend months if not years rebuilding it.

Its always a good day when you do over 300 miles in a Lotus and spend some time in great company.  Many thanks as always @Sparky.

Sounds like there may be a TLF outing to Lubborn cheese factory shop sometime then Bibbo??

When the location of your bright yellow Esprit shows the council are very clearly lying. 675E7D9B-F15F-4072-859E-72747227268C.thumb.jpeg.e28ee1b03901d43705fc399b943eb2bf.jpeg

2020 - I’m afraid it most certainly wasn’t parked there at any point this year even for a few minutes. The date is 27/06/2018. Should make an interesting discussion point.

@Barrykearley If you haven't already, download Google Earth Pro and navigate to your house, then use the historical imagery button and timeline to see most* if not all satellite images taken through the years. The online Google Earth doesn't have this feature (that I could find anyway). 

*Sometimes Bing and Apple have better more up to date scans.

Original or replica? How was it to drive? I'm very, very jealous!

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!

Replica, Tornado or KVA I recon.  In no way was this a road car.  Totally brutal driving experience, proper analogue driving; small cabin space, could hardly fit in the racing seat, cabin was hot, 45 degrees, you're a couple of inches away from a 5.8 litre Windsor engine, heavy clutch, gear change was long, brakes nonexistent, acceleration was ok, handling was superb.  It made a lot of drama about going quite fast.  But wow what an experience!

I'm thinking of buying one.

Even more jealous - thanks :)  I guess a car that was built for one thing, to beat Ferrari at Le Mans, will be a little uncompromising for the road.

I am assuming you can upgrade the brakes and also I believe you can add aircon - I was told it was essential!

Hasn't someone on here recently bought one? @Trevsked maybe?
