On Buying a Lotus

Recommended Posts

This little bit of doggerel was inspired by the 'barn find' Elite S2.2 currently for sale on Ebay, and my own experiences of doing a similar thing.


Based on, and with apologies to, Robert Frost 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.'


Whose dream is this I think I know.   

It needs much restoration though   

Who will see me bidding here?   

Now I have won - I feel a glow.   


Some say it looks a little queer   

Yet for me it’s perfection near   

Before I drive it I must take   

The dearest journey of the year.   


I give my doubting mind a shake   

To ask if I've made some mistake.   

I progress slowly, costs are steep   

Of body, engine, wheels and brake.   


Now she is lovely, sharp and sleek,   

So I have promises to keep,   

And miles to go before I sleep,   

And miles to go before I sleep.

Not sure I'll get to the last bit on mine... But well said. Certainly raises the bar on posts.
