Hi From Blackpool!

Post by Rether90 » Thu May 31, 2018 7:28 am

Hi all,

Just a quick post saying hello, I bought my first Elise S about two years ago and have loved every moment of it so far! :D

I used to be a member of Club Lotus up until recently but I wasn't really a fan, being 25 when I first joined there was too much of an age gap and the events they threw such as dinners and balls isn't really for me. Last year I was showing my car at Tatton with Club Lotus and realised what I was missing out on when I saw the NORLOG club. :lol: - Off the top of my head, I think it was a chap named Chris with a Yellow 111 who gave me the details about the website but I may be wrong!

Anyway, I have attached some pictures of my car, my dads red TVR 350i and my friends Yellow TVR S (keeping in with the fibreglass theme). If you see me driving around the Thornton Cleveleys area give me a wave. :)

Hi Rob and welcome to NORLOG.

I had a similar experience with Club Lotus when I got my first Lotus almost 15 years ago. Worrying thing is I am probably old enough to fit in now :blink: :lol: .

Keep your eye on Meets & Events for stuff coming up. Monthly meet next week also if you can get along.

Great pics and nice to see a bit of TVR Wedge, had one also until a few years ago as my track car - lovingly called the Sofa by peeps on here :)

See about sometime soon

Owning the cars I do means I cant afford the professional help I need, so never believe I know what I'm talking about, have a clue about anything or mean any of it!

Hi Rob,

Welcome to the club, nice looking Elise. We are meeting at the Houghton arms this Wednesday from 7pm if you can make it. The more the merrier!

Hi all thanks for the warm welcome!

I would love to attend tatton but I’m guessing I am a bit late to register with it being on today and tomorrow?

Alologies Mike! - I am better at remembering cars than faces!

Loving the wedge David! Do you also get kids pointing and shouting “look a Ferrari!”? ...presumably because it’s red!
You should have a chat with my dad if you are attending Tatton, chances are he will be there with his.

I should be free this Wednesday too, will try my best to pop down 🙂

Rob
