Lotus Elan

Humorous image of Lotus mechanics anyone?

PostPost by: M.J.S » Fri Jul 27, 2018 3:02 pm

Some years ago on here I stumbled across a humorous cartoon of 'ideal' Lotus mechanics, with all kinds of long, misshapen arms and bodies, etc. I had a printout on my garage wall for years, but it's disappeared and for the life of me I cannot locate the image to print another. Does anybody know to the cartoon to which I refer and if you have it saved, will you post it? Many thanks.

The title of the thread of course invites all sorts of humourous images.

Are you aware of the significance of Pampas Grass ?

Oh my!

I'm surprised that it can grow over there. I'm grateful that I didn't own the place where that picture was taken, as the pampas grass was terrible to deal with the way it would spread and how unpleasant it is to deal with when it needs trimming. If I was a UK swinger I would definitely skip it and employ other means of connecting. :mrgreen:

But good to know.

Over here the old saw is that a pineapple on the mailbox means the same thing, but I don't think anybody actually puts one there.
