I should print that and put it on the wall in the Workshop. 🙂

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

(actually the Esprit is not so dirty but the Elan ... Well it has been my daily for a few months because my real daily needed a little TLC to be MOTted :whistle: — Hehe, Lotus actually came to the rescue of a good old Nissan! I still managed to dodge the salt on the road and almost all the rain as we are more or less locked down anyway ...)

Mine got her first wash of the year last week. Of course the next day it was raining again... I certainly did enjoy the drives in the sun, feels like spring! She'd been used all through winter, except for the week we actually got some snow. I don't mind the snow, but hate the horrible salt and it just makes more sense to use the Range Rover, never having to worry about being able to drive off and a lot less worries about other people and their (lack of) driving skills.

Looks really great Giz - let's see anymore around Singapore... I hope to get out there again for work when we can travel again... 🙂

Thanks Henry. If that ever happens again, make sure you look me up mate.

Looks great Giz, but liked the yellow too.   NB is that the Mobil pegasus logo?   Seem to remember him gracing our petrol pumps many years ago.

Thanks Steve. Yes it is the Esso Mobile Pegasus. It’s a bit of a reference to old days. Besides the Union Jack that’s the only ‘non standard’ item in the car. The yellow looked ok in photos only. In reality it was a poor paint job, a non-lotus color and with incorrect color coded bumpers. It was pretty awful close up. So in essence, I’m really happy with the new look. The general public reactions also confirms it.

I wonder how long it has been off the road. Certainly going to need a good going over before they think about starting it. I clocked it has the RC injectors in one of the shots, so its had some money spent on it at some point.

Was it my eyes deceiving me or was the binnacle fascia made of plywood, or are all SE's like that?

I WANT him to try & start it, so that we will have video evidence that cam belts need to be replaced ON SCHEDULE.

Would be a good deal just for engine/gearbox and other spares. But a shame to let what seemed like a nice (and running!) car go to waste...

I don't understand either.
