Hi all,

New to Lotus but known to Rambo!

A 1991 SE will shortly be headed north from congested Sussex to enjoy the stunning driving roads of The Scottish Borders.

I will keep you all in suspense as to which car It is until it is picked up when photos will be posted.

Has a good service (lots of stamps) and MoT history.

We will have to start building that wall again if you don't stop moving most of the cars north of it :D

Sorry but we can’t help that the cars know where to come to be properly exercised!

Scotland will soon have the largest population of M100's per capita in the world at this rate. If it hasn't already :smt023

Hi TD2, welcome to the forum, I’m sure Rambo will look after you and your new Elan. :D
Will you be driving up the A1 this Saturday ? If so I”ll keep a look out for you, I’m going to pick up our new family car from East Midlands airport and hopefully will be heading north in the morning .

Not this coming weekend; snow is forecast here in the Borders.

All being well will bring it North before the end of the month.

Rambo is chomping at the bit, hope our paths cross during the summer.

Par, There is far more then boring old Bo'ness.

L.E.G.S have a monthly Sunday brunch , details on T.L.F. and Lotus Ecosse Facebook.

Leven Lotus now doing Sunday brunch, 1st Sun, Mar, May, Jul, Sept. I was there 2 weeks ago, about 50 people. Free Greggs butties and coffees for all.

This Sunday Lotus Drivers Club are kicking off their meets, 3rd Sun each Month at Macdonald Inchrya Grangemouth. Special Lotus rates, £1.50 roll n bacon, £1 a coffee !!! L.D.C is now run by Jim Lov and Jim Grant has retired. Event is open to all and they are trying to move on from Wed night tyre kicking at Boringness. All are Welcome. Weather looks crap this weekend but come summer probably some drive outs added .

Lets see Clan Elan back out again, rare seeing a M100 these days, Alan 2CV is the only one I ever see at Sun brunches, apart from Archie in his Death Star. :burnout: :burnout: :burnout:

Thanks all,

Looking forward to meeting up with you all. Hopefully first outing might be on the Caledonian Classic and Historic Motor Club Reivers Run on the 7th April. Their events are usually good and they welcome any Sportscars.

At the moment have my RV8 entered.
