LOG 39 Road Trip Video

PostPost by: Certified Lotus » Thu Sep 12, 2019 11:25 am

Here is the edited video of our LOG 39 Road Trip. Three Elan?s, two yellow Europa?s, one Cortina and one Elise. Ted and I agree that the back road drive to and from LOG is as fun (and even more) as LOG itself.

Grab a cup of coffee (or a beer) and make yourself comfortable. It?s 39 minutes long so you get a real feel of our experiences and surprises along the way. Watch in HD as it was shot in that format. Enjoy!

05 Elise - Back where I started

Thanks for posting. Looks like you all had a memorable time one way or another. So many Europas. They are getting rarer in the UK. Jim

Glen-thanks so much for posting this video of your recent LOG adventure. So great to see a nice selection of classic Lotus- I can't remember the last time I've seen a Lotus Cortina and more than one yellow Europa at the same time! I would love to make it to LOG in my Elan some day when I am reasonably confident that it would make it! If DC/MD/VA ever hosts in the future I will have run out of excuses. Thanks again for sharing the experience. If I ever do anything similar, I might throw in a little Iron Maiden for the auditory side of things!

Cheers, Mark Whitaker

Thanks for that Glen. Well done and enjoyable. Now I'm thinking about getting my S1 done in time for Salt Lake!
