I had/have a full directory of LW and articles scanned then put on CD. Asked if I could load on this site, but was rejected due to copyright concerns.

just to report back to my post, I've decided to keep the tech manual. very comprehensive and a good supplement to the Lotus workshop manual. as for the member directory from 1978, I don't think that really has any value. there were also a couple issues of their newsletter "Stress Cracks" which was interesting. Oh for those pre-internet, pre-computer days of old, when these things were hand typewritten and mimeographed. Must have been labor intensive. I am quite impressed, however, with the dedication, contributions, and commitment of members during the glory days of the 1970's when Lotus cars were new and in their prime. Lots of customizing, individualizing and modifications to improve/expand their capabilities. all the while documenting and sharing with other club members.
