That’s gorgeous! looks like the photos were late ‘80’s maybe.

I love the wheels, do you remember what they were, and the size?

Hey GTK,

They are "Gotti" wheels who is out of business.  As I recall they were 15 ins; don't remember the offsets.

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,   :)

I hate purists! 😀😀😀

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

Should have posted this here, wasn't thinking and put it in the Lotus Related Pictures thread...

They're from an F50 supposedly?

Great find George.

Most modifications look bloody tragic but I have to say, for my 5 cents, that really works.
