SOUP - My new series about my Series 2


Recommended Posts

Haha the Old Spice ads were classic too, surfing to the tune of O Fortuna and hilarious voice over.... "you'll become yourself", "the mark of a man." Couple of dabs and you think so this is who I am?

It's magazine style because no one really does that anymore and with the way Youtube is these days 'no one watches the full thing', I thought it fits. Would love there to be a 'reason why' box for dislikes though - for quality control. Even if it was 'cause your face'. I just noticed someone like E21, then change their mind and dislike it :lol: I'm so curious.

I've been waiting for today for over a year so with quite a bit of trepidation... I want to show you the first episode of the story of my classic cars. It's the beginning of life with my Esprit even t

There's a familiar face in the midst of this, banging on as usual about how he knows Goldie Lookin' Chain. Blah blah GLC all day long, yes we know mate

Cheers for another top watch George - I've got green eyes for that drill press, that's just epic!

I actually bought a china origin drill for £100 about 10 years ago - I can't believe that they could make it for the money. It adjusts in about 5 different directions and goes quite slowly if needed and I'd be lost without it. If I can find one like yours I'd still buy it!

Really hoping for a warm Spring as working in this cold is a major ball ache!

Cheers Mate, keep it up.

Is the price for that bit in Yen or £?

Not a huge amount of Lotus stuff this time but a really interesting insight into Land Rover from a JLR guy and a nice development in the story of the last Europa ever built [that's near the end].

Twin engined Volvo? :blink:

Slightly nuts but anyone who decides one engine isn't enough is alright with me :lol: It'd be funny to make it a sleeper inside and out, get someone in it with you and just go 'in a bit of a rush, better start up No.2...'

The active aero might give it away though :blink:

Another insightful episode! As a paid up member of both TLF and SOUP, I strongly endorse the message of supporting those that are aiming to do "what you like, are good at and what you need to do to earn a crust".

IF ONLY I could find something to encompass all 3 at the same time!

@Bibs & @GTK Keep it up guys...........

“Evoras a great car but the esprits a showstopper”

“Getting in the Evora is fun - getting in the Esprit is an event”

two key quotes for me right there. I’m fancying some great fun car moments 👍

Only here once

So this is a tough thing to say without coming off self serving but someone should post Bib's interview on the forum outside this thread. It'll be missed by many otherwise and if you ask me it should almost be compulsory viewing at the top of the introductions page. Initiation! [is there a KKK emoji?]. Anyway I've held off because it should be someone popular for max effect ....like @Barrykearley 😋

Far too complicated, post it yourself mate :)

Give a man a chicken and he'll eat for a day, give him a chicken shed and he'll go out for KFC 🤣

Okay, I’m gonna say it. 

George, dude.  SOUP is awesome. The light touch, the enthusiasm, production standards. All that. Brilliant. Proper gold star stuff.  And clearly, your audience is classic car restorer type people with beards and sandals, and for them, busy trying to source original marcasite from 1976, SOUP is catnip. But see, I think you have another audience.  And that audience is into cars, like say classic Lotus Esprit’s, say, and how they work, but slightly less into building a thing to fabricate a thing to replace that original thing with a thing almost nearly as probably original. An audience who likes the idea of restoring a classic car, but just pays someone else to do a far better job instead. But an audience that wants to see how, say, their Lotus Esprit S2, say, is being restored, but without the hassle of having to actually go to the garage and annoying the guy that the audience is paying to do all that tricky hammering and bending.

Or, to put it another way - white Lotus Esprit S2 (its under that cover).  George, dude, you're killing me, here. 

Awesome.

Not at this point in time. Looking into some ventures to generate some spare (?) cash. Wish me luck - and, no, it doesn't involve me being in front of a camera :P
