Lotus Elan

Bristol Classic Car show

PostPost by: GrUmPyBoDgEr » Sun Nov 06, 2011 4:31 pm

I've just returned & was disappointed.
Just 3 halls, 2 of which were dealers stalls.
The main hall had maybe 50 different cars on display
From memory 8 or 9 years ago the show was much bigger with loads of clubs putting on great displays; or am I confusing this with another show which was also held at the Bath & West show ground.
Anyway the only Lotus cars present were out in a specially allocated the car park & amazingly they were +2's.
Here are some pic's.

Errrm, sorry, just couldn't resist adding the Alpine pics :wink:

Cheers
John

Nice pics, John.

Are the +2 owners on/in here?

Cheers - Richard

P.S. Given the location, how many Bristols were on show? :wink:

Q1. Dunno :|
Q2. No but there was a drop dead gorgeous AC Acea Bristol there. Way beyond our league, I think.

I did meet a guy wearing an LDC jacket who lives in Elanintheforest's neck of the woods.
He has an S4 FHC & is restoring a Europa.
I pointed him in the direction of this forum.

Cheers
