Yep, thanks for posting! How refreshing to listen to an educated journalist speaking with you and not at you! Can you imagine that oaf Clarkson doing the same twenty minutues in a calm collected manner.. :D

Love his observation on the weight of the Elan inversely proportional to the Lotus finances at the time!

And he is right - where are the smaller models?

Maybe I need to repaint my JPS S1 Esprit and Gold Leaf S4 Elan to match my Yellow Plus 2 :lol:

Looked nice in a convoy, but I think I have the three classic Lotus colours already :lol:

cheers

I second that!

Both colours are close to my heart - quite literally! My fist cigarette as a lad i the bushes was a Gold Leaf - if it was good enough for Jim Clark and Graham Hill, it was good enough for me! Boy was I sick! :?

Then with Fittipaldi and Andretti, JPS was it! My little beat up Mini was hastily painted black (Dulux) with much spent on rolls of gold pinstripes! :D

I then decided smoking was not a good idea when JPS lost the good drivers to some whippersnappers Mansel and Senna :lol:
