It's good to see the cars, but look at the advertising boards...the Ambassador, now there's a car that would have been best left on the drawing board!  I remember my Dad having one for a very short spell as a company car, it was in the dealers more than it was on the driveway, he should have got a Lotus.

And my wife learnt to drive in an automatic Metro. About as far removed from a St Tropez Esprit as you can get. (She cannot drive my Esprit as she passed her test in the automatic!)

I think I have enough to do on the TE. I would love one though!

A lot of love for Europas over here  :thumbup:   A guy round by me owns a black Europa with a rear mounted wing spolier,   Also racing seems or used to be very much eaier/cheaper to get into,  regs may of changed now though,  past a model shop last month with cars in the window, went back a few weeks ago to see what they had as i was after the Fujimi S1 model kit to do some kit bashing with. 

The shop only had metal cast cars sadly, but they pointed me in the direction of a local hobby store,  went up there and chap sitting behind the counter was wearing a jacket with a lotus badge stiched on, always a good sign, asked him for the kit, and he took me straight to the shelf !

Sat down with him and he still owns an esprit, a turbo se, also used to race plenty of cars Alfas, fiats, and a lotus 7, just weekend racing by the looks of the pictures, really nice guy and even gave me a 10 percent discount :thumbup:

Enjoyed that @GTK. 👍 Wonder how stable the Europa is with a rear wing? - back in 1970 a magazine in the USA measured '55lbs' downforce at the rear already on a S2,  the front (without spoiler) clocked 95lbs LIFT 😨. Great to see it beat all the exotica 😎

It's a pity that I missed out on getting my car in the picture, although I can admire the fine parking of the Juke that I endured as a courtesy car 😆

What they need is a barbeque and beer on those roof terraces.

As a WRX & Esprit owner, that would be a convenient dealer for me. Not that Lotus knows what an Esprit is anymore......

Same here. Those Jukes are errr different aren't they? :shock::) I can still remember Phil trying to put a positive spin on it early last year when I had my Exige in for a service and he was walking me out to the courtesy car.:)

@Spinney As I said to Phil, the Juke certainly helped me appreciate what I've got a lot more! 😄
