The Lotus parts fair is on this Sunday at Stoneleigh and I was wondering if many of you folks are going.

I'm going in my Elan +2 although I think I need something more like a van as I have a rather long list of part I need for my S1 Esprit :?

Want to meet up for a Bacon Sarny and a coffee?

I'll be there, but having missed out on lots last year because of bringing a 2 seater, I'm bringing the Jeep! And a long, long list for the S2 and Plus 2.
See you there.

Another almost there with the +2 case. Happy to meet up for a bacon butty and a tea.

I'll be easy to spot - my hair's standing up on end as I managed to get fibreglass resin in it earlier today.

I'm aiming to get there early so happy to meet any time... just name a time and place Matt.

Myself and Phil Gaskel will be there with my +2 and Phil's Pistashio over white Sprint dhc. Look out for us in the main hall. These cars did 2,500 miles in France this year. Since then the +2 has had the heater fixed (warmth at last) and a new clutch slave cylinder fitted. Must fit that heat shield some time. Best place in the world for baking hydraulic seals.

Hi there,

due to my present employment commitments I will be spending the weekend at home in Bavaria instead of being at Stonliegh :cry:
In the past I have left a note book on a table which some of you used as a means of contact.
Sombody had also made a LotusElan.net sign out of aluminium which I believe Club Lotus has. I will ask them to display it on a table close to their stand if it's still around.
Failing all of that it would be good if someone could post a pic. of all of you in yellow socks :D

Cheers
John

It's arranged.
Club Lotus will put the "Elan.net" sign on a table next to their stand.
It would still be nice to see you all in your yellow socks though :lol:

I hope to be there if I can get out of some family commitments. If this mild spell continues I may even make the trip by Elan. Normally it would be tucked up in a warm garage to keep it away from the salt 8)
