All,

It has been some time since I last updated the blog.  All these years on, the little Lotus is still going strong.  She is now 20 years old and looks and drives as good as ever.  The love for this iconic car remains.  

My days of mods and getting under the car every weekend are over I think.  I now simply enjoy the ownership experience and driving!  Oh, I also do a little bit of polishing - just a little.

This car is simply pure magic and medicine to all gloominess.

😁

Just realised, it's been 10 years, to the month, since the original conversion.  Apart from normal bits that required replacing, it hasn't done too badly indeed.

Looking good Bis.

Hey all.  Good to hear from you guys.  All good.  Being focused on family and health stuff for a while, so not really been doing 'car stuff'.   But all good all things considering.

Hi Bis, good to see you back on line again. I no longer have my S1 I'm afraid. Any chance of you making it to LitP this year?

Have you realised I've sold mine?

Yep I actually got rid of it 😕, I am now lotusless..............but have a nice V8 Vantage instead 😁 and the Stratos Replica is finally nearing completion!

Hey Phil!  Good to hear from you.  You went big power Subaru route I seem to remember.  I hope all is well.  With regards to the event this year, I am not going to make it.  I am still sorting a few things out, but perhaps next year.  It would be good to see you again.

Wow, there is life after the plastic cars it seems!  The Vantage has great rumble to it (although not as fast at the Honda Elise you had 😛 ).  The Stratos is born!  I am sure you have a blog somewhere about it.  Send me the link. Thats going to be a keeper I am sure with the Alpha engine in the bay.  Congrats! 👍🏾

I had a few Subarus yes but no 'big power' ones. I bought a secondhand Evora a couple of years back now from a Lotus dealership and then by pure coincidence my Evora's previous owner bought my old Type 49, it now resides in Scotland.

Sorry to hear you can't make LitP this year, we'll hopefully meet up again some other time.

Oh nice.  I have never been in, nor driven an Evora.  Congrats. 

Let me get 'life' out of the way and come out to play - 2020 ☺️
