    Stu and I fulfilled a dream last night.....

    Last night we both drove a Lotus Carlton. absolutley amazing - Gary the guy who owns it took us both for a spin - which we would of been totally happy with, and then asked Stu if he wanted a go. Stu said he would love to so jumped in - I was sat in back seat holding onto the door handle

    the acceleration was amazing, really threw you back in your seat.

    Then I had a blast, it was really really good, roads where wet so obviously no silly speeds etc. He said when it's a dry day he will let us both have another go

    we both really enjoyed the experience, so much so I have told Gary we want first refusal if he ever sells it. (which is in heated debate at the min)

    The GSI felt soooooo slow on the way home - poor baby!

    big thanks to Gary, Nikki, Charlotte, Emily and Lydia (the little nutcase- lol) for their hospitality last night.

    Al i don't get jelous when people fulfill a dream.

    Especially when i put bride and Lotus Carlton owner in contact with each other.

    Really please Hev text me too, it was me that pointed out how slow the GSi would feel after a blast in a 3.6l Twin Turboed monster!

    Glad Stu liked it too.

    Just as this thread needs it. A piccy!

    Where's the drooling smilie?

    we knew the GSI would feel slow - however we thought it was funny when his kids said they preferred ours to the LC

    The LC was always Stu's dream, he never thought he would ever have a go - just glad he has had a drive. he is still grinning now bless him
