I'm after the greater rusty elite chassisfish. Patience is the key Steve.

Whilst looking through some old photographs recently, I came across some of a family holiday to Blackpool back in 1977, when I was 15 years old.

In amongst the pictures of the tower and the donkeys, was this one of a red Lotus Elite in the car park of where we were staying, the Norbreck Castle Hotel.

Proof, if needed, that my purchase of an almost identical car some 40 years later was the fulfillment of a childhood dream!

PS - the picture next to it is my dad's 1976 Rover 3500 in very period 'Brazilia Brown'.

The Corgi elite does exist!

Maybe - but I can't vouch for the towbar!

I will don't worry! 

 

I'm only down the road in Norwich - when do you meet?

 

I must warn you though...if any good 70s Esprits turn up, I'll be badgering the owners to sell one to me 😉🤣

Did you shake hands with the guy who adjusted the drivers side mirror?  Did he give you your arm back?
