Fantastic story Roy ,  Cheers for posting,, love the idea of been payed in lotus cars lol,  but well understand your situation at the time regarding cash flow lol.  

So many great stories based around these custyom build super cars, just adds to more love to the brand for me :thumbup:

 

Very much like the look of those old three peice rims on your yellow S1 Also,  I am sure it is sitting back on standard rims now with the turbo louvres removed also maybe :)

Never seen this one before,  But it is a BBC old doc,  so may have been posted at some point,   contains some excellent back ground footage of the great Mr Chapman and the 78 grand prix seasons,  footage from the stables workshop and some great footage of the lotus team at the home workshops,   

Ford v8 F1 engines built in Sweden,  at 15,000 a pop !   Dread to think how much an F1 engine costs to build these days lol.

Enjoy,   :)

No wires here! IMG_1889.JPG.4e88f74cc19694351e2720645cda418e.JPG

Sorry about the Coke bottle!

i didn't see the Coke bottle initially as it was covered by all the other gumpff in the boot space. :P 

And far be it from me to tell you that your lovely looking engine bay (and it is lovely looking) does in fact need wires to function properly.

You have to love TLF where everybody does their best to help. :D

When the exhaust is fitted it will be bettter!

The exhaust is there. Tough to see but there are dark tailpipes. I’d say there are boot floor mods to accommodate.

edit; I don’t like it.

Not to everyones taste style wise, but coil packs fitted and what looks like a very intresting and well put together lotus four pot,   would love to know what reliable safe figures they got out of it on a rolling road.  

Ian plunge pool at the front is the gt40 set up,  alloy rad and twin fans,  Early G cars are extremely light on the front end at top speed, the front starts to hover lol,  not a nice looking mod, but i am sure a great aid to top end stability :)

That st Tropez posted by Neil,  must of been left on axle stands for a good while with the wheels unsupported as its sitting higher than a 4x4,   Made it probably a lot easier for someone to get off the trailer though :thumbup:
