Best post a couple in here I guess



Lovely car, but I'm intrigued by your house - what is the curved area on the left as we see it used for? Are there windows on the first floor?

Is your house a lighthouse?

I'm guessing an oast house.

Stunning Exige, nice colour combinations going on.

Thanks.

The curved bit is the turret shaped staircase. I don't have many pictures to hand that show it very well - this was from a few years ago, before we extended to drive out a bit.

I feel the same...

Just had a look at your car histroy - how the hell did you manage to get a Honda'd S2 111S for £16k?! (and then sell it for £16k!!). Even before the silly price rises of recent years that sounds a spectacular bargain.

It was 2009 ish when people where still cautious of K20 conversions. Car wasnt mint, but not far off with Ohlins, Exige seats etc, was converted to a race car in some Italian lotus series by the owner after me. I still keep in touch. It was my daily driver for 2 years and track day warrior. Best car I've ever owned

Always plans to get another Lotus. Tempted by a 'project' but I know how costs spiral hehe

If I see something different / interesting at a reasonable price i might jump on it.. I'm always browsing

I'm living down south now, plus I would need something different to a fairly standard Elise, I would love another Honda Elise. Also tempted (wash my mouth out) by a 2zz converted MR2 for some cheap thrills in the interim.
