The old man came round and demanded a picture while I was cleaning the car. He was chatting about it all and how he signed off every stage personally and how he cocked up because he doesn't have a sin

Holy Moly! I've never heard of cable racing before, those cars are incredible, you can barely see them whizz around!

I used to have a control line airplane as a kid, similar type of thing ( but in the air of course)  noisy but fun.

I mainly got to know the Cortina thanks to Goodwood revival and those intense races where some guys send them down the track like hell. 

It's actually the first one I see in the flesh in many years.

I seen a Cortina with a friend, and I honestly didn't even know Lotus had anything to do with it, until he educated me, brilliant shots, and amazing it's still in track time condition

Ford and Lotus used to go together like rama-langa ding-dong....sadly the GT Le Mans (60s) project was not given to Lotus. 

Ex-Lotus employees Duckworth and Costin did leave Ford (and Lotus) with a decent legacy.

During a classic car trackday at my place today. 

Beautiful, just beautiful. I bought one of these in the late 60’s, my first Lotus purchase (well apart from slot racers😁) and just adored it. That looks to be the same model as mine, ‘63 with Ali boot, bonnet and doors. Mine had been converted back to leaf spring rear suspension but the chap I bought it from included the original ‘A’ frame suspension in case I wanted to revert to original. I didn’t!

God how I loved that car and had many, many memorable times in it. 😁

I was just browsing TLF and stumbled across this advertisement.

That Evora looks familiar I thought. Sure enough it’s the 2009 LE I bought in 2013 and re-registered E9ORA, which is now owned by another TLFer. First owner Al (also on here) originally registered it OO07ALN I think and retained that number for his second Aquamarine NA. It was then put on SN59FYK and owned by a gentleman in the Fenland area, before I bought it from an independent car warehouse operation and re-registered it E9ORA. I probably still have the old number plates in my garage. I wonder where/when that track photo was taken?

This was taken the day I bought it.
