Just in time to invest in a new Lotus @PaulCP hahaha!

Great result

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!

It is a great result @C8RKH and one we had given up on many years ago. However it just shows that if you stick at it & don’t let the b’stds grind you down (which is what they tried to do) then sometimes it is worth it.

TBH the lawyer more than earned his cut with the amount of work he put in.

As for that new Lotus, yes.....I wish 😉. Heart says “a big yes,” head says “be sensible due to continuing health situation” No point in buying one and then finding out that I have to surrender my licence again😟

It does hurt not having that Evora but at least I can look back with vast satisfaction  that I did it and enjoyed every second of it 👍

So builders started on the house this week , a mate of mine who usually only buys land and develops I have been hassling him for 2 years to do my house as a commercial exercise, I finally wore him down. 
so they started Tuesday at 10am as they were awaiting machines. So this is the end of day 4, we have had 60 Ton of hardcore and earth out and gone, all drainage complete both foul and storm water, footings dug and completed today so they start building on Tuesday. This was my drive today they finished at 6pm tonight just after they had jet washed the drive 😍

Last Feb we agreed terms to buy our house. An electricity pole in the middle of the lawn was to be moved before exchange. Was scheduled for last may. We moved last June and today it finally got moved. Delayed almost exactly 12 months by COVID. 
 

The sellers will be happy too as there was a big retention being sat on until resolved.

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

Just a thought. Have a selection of friends Lotus parked on the drive or whatever at the entry. Entitled.

A Bonding moment in time.

Working for 3 weeks as a fitter (last on the tools about 25 years ago. keep doing things at home though) installing stainless conveyors at a winery near home. So finally getting back out there.

Also waiting to see how things go with an exciting role as a maintenance planner for a company here in Geelong. That's all I'll say about it at the moment.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Found and drove Harry Metcalf's favourite road around his area today in the Evora.

It's like being at Alton Towers, what a blast!

Steve that has done some suspension work on my Esprit rang me to ask if he could send my details to a guy that may want to purchase my car. (Also see here.)

Putting down deposits on the new Emira and finding out the dealer says it is INCREDIBLE but he can't say too much more about it.

Had a Bloody good day yesterday being driven around Castle Combe in these beauties, one of the best days I have had in a long time😁:

May be an image of car, road and text that says "1 KGE LUCAS RAF 63R LUCAS"

May be an image of car and outdoors

 

Ooooh, I had a couple of 240Z’s in the early 80’s. Fantastic cars if you discount the rusting.

Margate Exotics.

Played hockey - won 4-0. This was after a 1-0 defeat to the same team last week. Possibly last game of the season, unless @thebartman manages to get his team to sort out some fixtures against us :)

I think I've managed to sort out the BSOD I was getting every time I restarted after my PC hibernated or went to sleep - which was getting me really pissed off as it started doing this two weeks ago.

Started to prepare to reinstall windows by downloading all the latest motherboard software, and I noticed that there was a March Bios upgrade. Decided to apply this before doing the re-install.

Tested hibernate - no BSOD, same for sleep, so this is a result :thumbsup: - although it will probably return next week.
