Were there any Ally bodied 50's Lotus Cars there? What did the HLR have on the stand?

Hi all,

Had a great weekend and met a lot of good people. Those of you who came to see me on my stand, thanks for all the chat. Here are a few pics, some serious, some not.

Hope the aluminium shots are what you'r after

And some more :D

Some great cars there this year. The 7 & Mk14 were the special theme, both celebrating 50th anniversaries.
4 genuine 47's the white one & th 3 red ones pictured were there.
The yellow "Theme" Elite replica was the first actual customer car that I've seen.
The dark green S2 "26R" is immaculate.
The green with silver roof Mk14 has taken it's owner 22 years to achieve that look, it's a dream on wheels. Valued by a well recognised Elite owner/specialist at over £40k.
Dissapointingly Ron Hickman did not show up this year. I hope you're well Ron :)
It was great to meet you guys there
Cheers
John

If you're referring to Slide6 this isn't a customer car. The three guys originally responsible for the project are in the North Kent Lotus group and have one each. The third car is blue.
The silver one seen on the Spyder stand had the benefit of a great deal of post production development by its owner.

Thanks for the pics,
best wishes,

Si
