CAR Magazine 1984

Postby Fredjohn » Fri 19.09.2014, 12:18

Whilst having a bit of a clear-out, I found loads of Motorsport magazines from the '70s/'80s and amongst them a copy of Car from November 1984.
Apart from plenty of cheap prices for old Lotus, was this article about the immediate rebirth of Lotus and it's future (V1 or even V2 or V3 in hindsight!!)

Thought some of you inclined to the history of Lotus would be interested in the article and accompanying photos. Not strictly M100 related but very interesting none the less.

Even a contribution from the inimitable LJK Setright.

The rear end looks like a Chrysler LeBaron with flying buttresses.
