Ah well if posters use ambiguous topic titles, what do you expect.

Many of us use the "Active Topics" link all of the time, which means that the Forum Title is not obvious at all.

Thanks for that confirmation, Jeff.

Many have said Lagoon Blue is the nicest colour Lotus offered on Elans. I think I would agree (and especially like the silver roof versions).

Are you pleased with the colour in person??

Oooo . . . really nice beauty shot. I would like that in higher res, please and thank you :mrgreen:

And just to show that I'm willing to give as well as receive this season . . . here's a couple of my car, as I received it 3 1/2 years ago. It will never look like that again, as the third pic shows. :shock: :mrgreen:

My 73 Plus2S 130/5 - now at the painters - hopefully I will get it back around the end of January and I can start putting it back together.

A couple of pics I have posted before. My Plus 2 in Rogers Pass Canada after LOG31 Las Vegas, and a fluke picture on the way down to Vegas.

Merry Christmas to all.

Yup, that field-and-rainbow pic is one of my favourites, Stu. :mrgreen: I haven't seen the Roger's Pass tunnel pic. Nice. And you had to drive through snow/slush in that new machine! :shock:

Merry Christmas!

LOG35 in Colorado is in August next year. Should avoid the slush. :) I bet Ross and the organizing committee figured October is a bit late for the mountain states. :)

October would definitely be too late! :mrgreen: But August will be beautiful. And a bit closer to us.
