Wehad the Lotus out this afternoon with my Wee boy as co-driver and he loved it. All its wee pops&bangs, wind in your hair and the vibe the Lotus gives you back. 8)

It sounds like it's got an exhaust leak somewhere up front, throttle cable is a bit of a faff but she drove really well and I'd forgotten how nimble she is through the twisties!

Only pic are from our arrival home and after I'd fitted the tonneau... I swear we were out :lol:

Yes you have to get out and drive a Lotus. They are not for bar room bragging but for driving

cheers

Drive it while you can, winter is on the way :roll:

That's a pretty shade of blue.

I love the colour and the semi flat finish - wish I'd acheived that on my own car now

:lol: The semi flat finish isn't intentional and it is kindly camouflaging the microblisters...
