WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Yep. He comes across as a good sort. Stunning collection of cars.

For a guy that is absolutely minted that Harry bloke is pretty down to earth.

Those Elans are beautiful. Harry's Garage (youtube channel) has a pristine early 80's Esprit. Paid about 45k for it.

I bought an '89 SE sight-unseen from a UK classic car auction in Sep. It arrived here in NZ last Thursday. Customs and quarantine have to do their thing and I should finally get it in a couple of weeks. I must be fucking mental. At least while it's in transit it's not costing me anything.

The Espirit, the one in the Bond film was a mechanically flawed car and kept breaking down.

Re: Old Lotuses
Slightly off topic - I know.
If you want to talk lotus - look at this - from Jay Leno's garage. I know he's got more money than God, but the bloke is a genuine petrolhead.
Check this out, fully Lotus Elan 26R - one of Chapman's most beautiful babies - total classic - enjoy.

Shouldn't it be “old Loti”?

Re: Old Lotuses
I had a 944 and a 928 Porsche in the 80s, nice cars but didn’t keep either long. My brother had a TR6 black convertible with wire spoke wheels, nice looker. I nearly bought a Austin Healey but the old fashioned clumsy gear stick put me off.

The XK 120 Jag convertible has always been a favourite but prices have rocketed for all the old classics now.

Re: Old Lotuses
Any old car rust is the issue , forget getting one if you are much over 5,7 tho.

Re: Old Lotuses
Takes a brave or minted man to go after one of these old Lotuses. They were fucking unreliable when they were new, will be a money pit now. Fucking class though.

Re: Old Lotuses
The car never went wrong mechanically, mid engine as Ferrari handled superbly, looked the dogs from the outside, cats sick interior, pop up headlights. It was a gravel road downhill and pissed, not the first car he has written off due to the devils brew!

Re: Old Lotuses
Supposed to have been a lot safer than most cars of the era. Crumple zones and all that.

Turquoise velour - now yer talking.

Re: Old Lotuses
Brother had one back in the 80s, white with turquoise velour, drove it into a lamppost when pissed and legged it, complete write off being fibreglass.
