Dude, I love Lotus. How'd you get it and what happened to it?
I worked for Lotus during my school holidays, then full time after I left school in 1963; after leaving Lotus I worked for Diva Cars building GT cars for drivers like the late John Miles, who later drove for Lotus in F1.
I saved up for My Elan, but a 30 year-old specialist car is not a practical proposition in a rented garage, 2 miles away, with no electricity or water, so I reluctantly sold it.
I raced a Mk11 Merlyn in '71 and a friend and I built the Nomad FF in my avatar which I raced in 1972.
Oh dear time to confess I like cars
cionfession is good for the soul they say
built a Lotus 7 4AGE turbo 300 hp at wheels 620 kg Sold it last year it was scary
since buying a BMW 335 twin turbo convertible with 400hp i could be scared with more style points
now down to 4 BMWs one VW Tiquan and mustang convertible
oh and a Suzuki RF900 i rebuilt from a wreck
I had a ‘52 Packard when I was 16 (1972). It was a tank. I got it for free. A neighbor was moving and called me up, said if I could get it out of his garage I could have it. I pushed it home, put a new battery in it and drove it for 2 years. No insurance, no registration. I just bombed around with expired plates, smoking pot. What an idiot. Never got pulled over. Apparently, it was the first production automatic transmission. But don’t quote me on that. I sold it for $500 when I went to college to a guy who was starting a Packard dealership. The last production Packard was built in Detroit in 1956.
