Welcome along Jim,

Not often I find someone who's had their +2 longer than I've had mine. Good man !

I have always believed you need 3 Lotus so that way you always have at least one to drive !!!

Well, the Elan was really bought for Mrs O so she had one to drive too, does this mean I should really have 6 :lol: :lol:

Ha ha Richard - you mean one like this. Apparently Lotus left the stripes in the glove compartment so Bill asked the builder of the kit put them on. I did consider replacing them but too risky to the paintwork so happy to leave as it is.
