Denis247 Posted August 3, 2014 Report Share Posted August 3, 2014 Other cars are;http://mediaslice.net/LotusEspritS2.htm An airride VW beetle and a hard slammed VW Karmann Ghia. I started out in the VDub scene but after two cars that scene wasn't for me, they have a kinda underlying voice that thinks VW is the only marque on the face of the plsnet and that everything else is 'pony and trap'... that's cockney, look it up in google. 70's Lotuses fit perfectly on my shoulders now, no body rust to deal with, loads of interchangable parts with other British cars of the period and dare I say it simple mechsnics, I.e. you can fix them with a basic tool kit. Plus the age group here seems to be less juvenile and there are lots of people on here with great Lotus knoweldge. The Elite for me is currently the most unusual Retro 70's Lotus out there and was crying out for a slight visual treat. "Typical, I've only been out for five minutes and I'm already in a hot car!". Charlie ;-) You did good with the Esprit, looks really nice. Good luck on the remaining jobs to do, you'll know better than I how it's easy to underestimate the little jobs, sometimes they can take up a surprising amount of time to do properly. VW's eh, I would have thought Mini's, E-type or even an Aston ( but not a coach), with that moniker. Btw, I'm from Marylebone, don't need a translation. Are you thinking of your next project yet?
