Do you mean the static cling ones that I got made, shown on this page?

Not sure if any are left. They may be with the club stand, or if lucky there's only on f in Geof Smith may have the last few.
I can have a dig around just in case.

By the way it would be worth putting your location in your profile.

Hello forumers.
I have been out for some time.
Possibly doing soul searching on a barren headland or sitting on a mountain top in a zen like state.
Which would be copying my poor unfortunate M100.
However, it is back to life after a couple of years in storage.
New cv boots and ball joints, new tyres, a battery charge and "IT'S ALIIVVVE!"
So, with a new found spirit of enthusiasm and a need to Hotwire the fix it memory I came back to the fold.

So, was reading this string and thought to myself.
"Who are these people?" I am truly terrible for names.
But also, some comments jogged the memory.
The staff handbook... Guidance such as sexism is mandatory especially in the smoking room.
The track map at the back. If you have the book, look at the map, there is a little DC in the corner. Yep, my Rotring was guilty for that.
Wish I still had my tie pin and big sticker.
As for the US launch... Brought back memories of the all nighters getting the cars ready. Jumping the queue in the paint rectification line and breaking every rule going.
Norfolk mustard was sort of born then with the first yellow cars. All the launch felt were scheduled red if I recall.But somehow we got Camel yellow in the mix. The reviews for the build quality in that launch were unheard of for Lotus. It was rewarding.
Anyway, wanted to say Hi and am overjoyed with how you guys have all kept the faith.
I still miss Those days and that place. mainstream car design has just never matched up.

If I remember correctly, you may have had an Elan for sale at the time on Ebay. :-D
