That's about double the total production of Lotus cars!

I wonder how many people rushed out to buy a Lotus on the basis of that Pathe film. There seemed to be rather a lot waiting to be, er, delivered: headlamps up, headlamps down, halfway up, or halfway down.

I'm the smaller one with spectacles. The bigger one was my Dad.
