All I can handle at my advanced age............stickers are for people who have Sprints and feel inferior to S3 SE owners.(quite rightly in my view) If it boosts their libido so be it. Stickers? Nah! The car does it for me. :roll: :roll: :D :D

PS: and I don't like crowds - just the right sort in small numbers. (S3 owners.............)


The S3 S/E had other stickers as well :-)

Don't think either are Sally Stokes, the photograph is one of a series taken at Rob Walker Garage Corsley Wilts during a promotional event when both Colin Chapman and Jim Clark presented cars to their new owners. I would have thought the 2 ladies were either employed at the garage or brought in for the event and Photo opportunity.

My car originated from the Rob Walker Garage in late '68 early '69 and as an early S4 is a little later than these photographs which appear to be S3's. The garage is still there and still a garage, although no longer a Lotus dealership. Given it was where my car originated from I've collected a few bits and pieces of memorabilia and documents relating to the garage over the years I don't have these photographs although I have seen them for sale by Motoring Man, who has on occasion posted here.

Special Equipment stickers........
Well I’ve had the costings for printing the stickers.....with artwork/printing/collection they will work out to £15.00 each. A bit more than I thought, but only having a small quantity printed.
I’m trying to work out how to mail them.....possibly cutting down mailing tubes.....I think I might have to charge a little for postage especially if mailed out of the country.
Please email at me [email protected] to place an order.......thank you.
