My wife's a home carer in York. She occasionally sees a red M100 with black wheels on her rounds. I've not seen any around York for a while. I know of a few in our local club around Leeds and my mate's car is currently being repainted in Gold Leaf colours.

Mine was in Yarmouth Wednesday afternoon! We kind of ended up in Yarmouth by mistake. We got a bit lost a few times last week. Do the locals turn the road signs round to confuse tourists?

We didn’t spot a single Lotus on the island.

Actually Kathryn, I suspect they do. I'm sure they do it on the IoM to confuse the motor bikers so I guess they might do it on the IoW as well

I think they used to do that on Guernsey too during the occupation Alan so lots of tanks and troop carriers were "spotted" lost and stuck down very narrow country lanes :lol: :lol:
