Anyone who reads daily newspapers will be well aware at the lack of copy checking or fact checking....

For the price of 3 lattes (or 2 pints.....just) I thought it a reasonable purchase. A definitive bible it is not

Agreed- all piss and cabbage water... ;-)

I mistakenly bought both editions "The complete Guide to The Best of Lotus" and "Guide to the Lotus Collectors Edition". Only the covers are different. Exact same info on the inside.

As stated before, a hodgepodge of Lotus info that has been pieced together. A few articles I had not read before so still interesting reading. And another addition to my collection of everything Lotus.
05 Elise - Back where I started

12 Colin 30 - Lotus Racing Kart

Zetecs! Wonderful, enjoyable reading...... Agreed that the Ford Kent article was a bit odd?

Graham Chapman has obviously been confused with Colin Arnold and the whole thing was just stitched together from archive material without any form of proof reading.

The Spyder advert which consumed 20 odd pages begs for a complete guide as to how to convert a +2 into an Elise alternative, I really must get my archives sorted and produce the book, maybe people will pay ?6.99 as a donation to LE.net to download it?
Kindest regards
