I have been looking out for a +2 for a while, hence joining this excellent forum.

I have had some good advice from some very nice and helpful members and also looked at some great cars and I would like to thank those guys for that.

Anyway I went for it and my 130/5 arrived this week. I’ve put 100 or so miles on her this weekend and all is running well. I would like to use the winter to sort out various issues so one of the Lotus specialists is likely to benefit from that.

Anyway I’m going to try to upload a pic taken on the drive. Thanks for having me as a member and I hope I can make a contribution.

Excellent stuff Jim, glad you are enjoying it. The excellent autumn weather is a bonus.
Hopefully be back on the road again shortly myself once I have sorted the valve clearances out and given it a service. (some stripped threads on the cam studs isn't exactly helpful though :roll: )
some excellent roads in the peoples republic
