Re: I’m in (that’s what he said)

HI Mark, Good luck with the M100 search. Had an M100 myself for a while and they are a really nice motor, make sure you get yourself onto Lotuselancentral forum, that is purely for the M100 model and the guys on there have a vast amount of knowledge about these cars

Well spotted, it is a super album, it is in fact a vinyl picture disc, only ever played the once. I do of course have the original black vinyl copy as well

Re: Did anyone get any ‘Lotus’ time this weekend??

Did a few tidy up jobs on the engine bay for the little Elan, new throttle cable and tidied the bonnet release cables up. next job sort out the choke so it works on both carbs, new stainless steel mechanism made just needs fitting and a new cable installed.
Oily hands as usual :-)
