Looking really good compared to his earlier pictures.

That would actually be Wendy's car (so cambelt not mentioned). I hope John's discussed it with her!

Apparently, I am a lot more color-blind than I thought? I read the "new, rescued" car was green and the picture of Wendy's car was blue.

The car in Clemo's post is the green one and one of the pictures was the same one he posted under "Elan M100 Rescue photographs" viewtopic.php?f=38&t=25500&p=324285#p324285

This is clearly the green 'barn find' / 'rescue car' - the text says so..

Blah blah blah lotus history.
Very little about actual car.
Bonus point for not using the word Rare.
