That's a good question...
And I think Ed got the answer spot on. But there are far more interesting questions.
The answer to the most interesting one is given though.

Here's a Lotus related question: who was the bearded chap who (briefly) appeared with the Lotus F1 team?
Just to cover my arse, this was not a bloke who grew a beard for a while, he sported this all the time he was there.

Too hard?

Clue: there were two of him with every car.

Didn't John Watson have a beard in '74 (75?) when he drove in lieu of Jacky Ickx ?

Possibly, I can't remember when he shaved his orf, something about winning something, or something? :roll:

Not him, anyway. Think about sponsorship, don't think about green and yellow. As I said this was only a fleeting appearance.

Yeah, right...good one Pete! :evil:

After you "told" us the answer I've been trying to find out "who" the sailor was...NOT the name of his ship!
gold leaf box.jpg and

I came to the conclusion his name was "Higgs" and he was a Bo'sun.

(It appears a load of other guys are also looking for him! )

HNY my ar*e :wink:

I thought that he had always been known as "Hero" (with the speech marks. Apologies to the Higgs family, if they are reading this; I think they live underground, in Switzerland). :wink:

So; I guess that I have to set another question.

Staying on a nautical theme, he said, whilst contemplating a slice of Navy cake, where on the Lotus Elan can the "golden rivet" be found?

I'll give you two clues- it's the one that holds everything together and you have to bend right over to find it. :roll:
