Don't put me back on the list, but I'm still going to try for the museum leg as Saturday might not be too heavy a night. Would just be me as we'd still have house guests.

No problem Colin, hope to see you at the Museum.

Where are all the rendezvous points. Looks like it's going to be a good turn out with a good mixture of cars. Going to be a good photo shoot.

Hi Johnny, I plan to leave Key at 9:00am so we could meet as usual in the old Homebase carpark at the retail park.

I may have to sneak in via the tradesman's entrance as I could be arriving in a non-Lotus, :( .

I put the Evora into Craig on Monday to investigate a suspension rattle and renew its MOT. It needs front drop links and ARB bushes, which he has in stock, and rear drop links which he doesn't and which are on back-order at Hethel. He has however managed to source some at a dealer down south so it's all down to the courier service now whether or not they arrive in time for the weekend.

80 hours since I last drove my P&J - I'm suffering severe withdrawal symptoms I can tell you!

Fingers crossed the part arrives in time.

No. 13 is now confirmed and no longer a maybe.  Lets hope we get weather like today and it will be a good photoshoot.  Damn, at 16:00 and light fading fast just realised mine is as manky as hell - now there is a surprise I hear you say - as been commuting to Clydebank all week.  Still shows the car isn't a weekend garage queen.

C U All there as been having withdrawal symptoms  this last few months.

Very doubtful of turning up or very doubtful of waking up?  That is surely rocket fuel.  I know what drinking the Pickering export strength gin is like at 57% and not so great the next day.

Honestly, every time I had a dram it was like the most pleasant punch in the head you could ever have Al. :lol:

Yup, definitely out, I think the police would have a gun unit outside the house if I even touched the car keys. I'm scared to go see how much is out of that bottle! Can't wait to see the photos of today. ??

Breakfast was top tucker considering all they had was two calor gas camping stoves, a single frying pan, and candle!  Only joking, was a bit slow for some, but the place was rammed.

Great to see so many great cars, old and new. Fantastic collection of motors. Anyone find out what colour that "white" esprit was with the blue interior. The paint was just pinging all over the place - wonderful... 

I ended up getting home just after dark, not long ago, about 4.5 hours+ after leaving the motor museum. Wonderful drive home, via just about every loch, nook, cranny, and road in the Lomond national park. Wife was about to send out a search party when I roared up the drive. Just under 250 miles all told for a "right love, see you, just out for brekkie with the Lotus folks" jaunt!  God the Evora is more addictive than crack cocaine.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Is the red Giugiaro Esprit Turbo this one here, that's for sale at Alan MacDonald's?

A thought struck me this morning whilst having a cup of tea, staring out the window....  

On the several LEGS runs I've done recently this year i can't seem to recall much of a presence from our friends in V6 Exiges!  I remember the LF1 being out a couple of times, and maybe one other, but that's about it. Are there many V6 Exiges about in Scotland, and if so, where do they all hide / lurk?

I have to say that Evora's have been very well represented, and even the V8 Esprit's, Elises and Elan's and Eclat's, but the V6 Exige seems to be a rare beast around here, or, maybe, they're just an unsociable bunch!  :P
