Regarding LOUTS it already has a certified definition. It was originated by Rod Thonger on the Sevens 2005 USA tour where there were three real Lotus Sevens out of the 50 plus Caterhams, Westfields and others.
The real Seven owners were Geoff Cole, Brian Green Rod and me.

It is a very select club with five current members Lotus Owners Up To Something. In 2007 we added Emerson Fittipaldi. If you are interested in joining I will send an application and the onerous dues structure measured in pints.

Ross,
It's a pity that the chrome letters on the boot/trunk lid can't be swapped around without surgery.

Is that US or UK pints for the dues?
Kindest regards
