At least it ended on high.  I can think of worse places to quarantined than behind the wheel of a lovely 135r 😁

Nice one mate, shame about the skiing but a decent outcome...

I think you should get Dan to make up some decals for it - 135R K20 Edition....

Look forward to seeing it, when we are allowed to get together again - will probably be late summer now!

So a little bit about the car.

It was the lotus press car for the 135R with a build number of #001.

It was previously powered by

The original 135bhp rover K.

Followed by an Audi turbo.

Finally having a K20 fitted a few years back.

It's a Stark conversion done by Craig Monticreif (Scotland's answer to Gav)

It requires some TLC to tidy it up so that'll keep me busy for a while.

Looked good value, wondered if anyone had bought it. I had a couple of conversations with the owner but the amount of work put me off. Good luck with it, lovely car with great history. 👍🏻

1st job: remove that stripe. 

I thought it was a shadow from a lamppost... but it's not is it?   I know folk will say they like it and it's jaunty.  It's not.  🤔.  It's driving my ocd  into overload and I'm getting a rash thinking you might keep it.
