We have had a few new members lately and I am wondering the reasons. Let us know what got you on this forum. :)

You can answer historically if you want. I did.

May I suggest a sixth category - 'I need something to do at work to make me look busy'   might be quite a popular one  

I was searching for midget ladyboy bukkake porn and happened (nearly said came) across this place by accident.   I knew I should have turned left at Albuquerque........

Got fed up with the playground and didn't know this place existed

I joined LEW as I was looking at buying an Esprit...after a while I found there was a very active forum section...then I realised that was different to LEW...Then I joined here.

I came on because I read an incorrect comment about my old man elsewhere and wanted to redress the balance. 10 years later on I'm still here and have some really good mates from all the events we have had....including that LEC/LEF one.......wasn't that when you were doing mixed drinks Bibs and Paul C put the bread basket on his head?

Joined as I had just purchased my first Lotus blind, over the phone, unseen and basicaly was told I was stupid. Yep, then went and done it another twice and all three landed up as cracking good cars, then of course we found that we could slag Bib's off and have some good banter, that was a bonus. On the serious side this is the best of many sites I have used over years of owning classic cars, the most helpfull and the most friendly.

 

Thanks to you all.

 

Oh and Bib's.

I started with the Lotus section on Pistonheads which is now virtually uninhabited. Then I discovered the playground, then discovered why it's called the playground! Since becoming a member here I don't bother with the other place at all. It's great to be a part of this place though, once you've found TLF there's no going back!

There's me thinking about how classy TLF is!

 

If you post up anything worse than that it will be a popular option in the 'why did you leave TLF' thread!

 

If Mrs Pits catches me with that on screen I'll have some explaining to do!

 

:shock:

I'm not sure I want to see worse.  Scarred mentally already. :2guns:

 

I joined up as an early adopter of TEF. The Evora Forum or whatever it was called which was straight after the Launch at the Motor show in July 2008.  The Dealer Salesman now Lotus Factory man Graeme Robertson put me onto it as a source of info for anybody considering the car.  My very first Forum experience of any sort as I didn't have time for them (as in clock time) - I thought...... How many days of my life have been spent onhere if you add it up?  The deposit quickly followed for Evora #3 into Scotland and #13 down the production line although it took a little longer to arrive than hoped.  Oh how naïve I was about Lotus back then......  :harhar:  It has been a great source of knowledge, friendship and friendliness.  Bibs rocks. :unworthy:

Had an Elan SE for a year and I've always hankered after re-entering the Lotus fray as it's by far my favourite marque! As a keen fan, TLF is simply the best place to indulge my Lotus interests!

Have been a Lotus fan since the 60's when Jimmy Clark (boyhood hero ) was winning everything in a Lotus ( favorite cars ). Followed Chapman and his F1 racing closely.

Over the years some Lotus cars came my way. I tried to buy an Eleven and a 40. Even wired the guy some $$$ on the 40 but both fell through. 

Bought an early 74 Elite broken down.  Fell in love with how it handles so I restored it to a good reliable road car with a drive train that is super tough and with a power to weight ratio better than the new Exige S Club Racer with the supercharged V6. 

 

So, I joined because I love fast cars, especially Lotus ones and enjoy hanging around like minded people who think like me and have a passion for Lotus cars.

 

atb,

Ah Wensum Valley. Seem to remember an incident with a towel, a light fitting and PaulC.

 

Joined LEF when I bought the car - joined the forum before I actually picked up the car.

 

It's interesting to go back and see your first post!

I bought my Esprit, it broke and I joined Club Lotus, not knowing that LEW/TLF existed. I went looking for information to help me fix my car and stumbled on LEW. I joined and then realised that LEF existed. I became a member hoping to get some useful info and help with my rebuild.

 

So far my car is still in a million bits but I have had much helpful advice from here and I love the often irreverent conversations.

 

Long live LEF :)

It's getting there......
