Is Miles Wilkins Trading?

Does anyone know if Miles Wilkins is selling Lotus parts and if so is he still based on the same site?

Hi William

He has a stock of parts but I think he has partially retired. The stockroom is next to the old site, sort of up the driveway and to the left. Problem I have found is he doesn't answer the phone, because that is situated on the old site, in a Portacabin.

When I visited, last November, the garage (as was) was partially emptied out, the lift and paint booth gone and a mass of old parts rusting in the yard. Still had the feel of a '60s garage, though. Hell of an atmosphere..

The workshop site has been sold so he's gone into semi retirement & sold off his jigs. I think he may stile selling some parts, but with Miles it's always been difficult to know if he was in business....
