Errm, I understood Free Parking to be for off topic non serious type posts, which this clearly is?

Eer, what is clear to me Alan, is that FREE PARKING is for topics with NO LOTUS CONTENT.

No matter how far removed your +2 is from original, I am sure there is some remnant of a Lotus there somewhere.

What are you having done to the car Alan....it's a bit early for a chassis change!?

I've studied the photograph carefully and I can't see a poodle anywhere.....who or what is the poodle, and where is he or she??!!

Shhh! don't tell anyone Mark, but I'm having a 6 speed gearbox fitted.

I'm not allowed to go off topic, so can't discuss the poodle. Leslie will fill you in if you ask him.

Alan, I thought you had already solved this by fitting higher profile tyres.....

......looking at your pic, you may need to go bigger still, how about these?
