Lovely photo's Xiphias, thanks for posting them. Like Monty I love the van, do you have any details, such as is it original and restored or is it a replica?

Really good pictures, and especially good to see the marque so well represented at Essen.

At the Techno Classica show earlier this year, which is supercar overload, there were only three Lotuses (including a tatty 11). That said, if you get chance to go, it is well worth it. Allow more than one day and comfy feet, it's about three times the size of the NEC November show.

Careful with the air travel though - Air Berlin fly you to Dusseldorf (they are pretty good), Ryanair lands you in Belgium, 100 miles away from Essen.
