There is always gonna be someone on this forum that has to say something to jack the thread with none sense questions or just ruin it for everybody else. If you're so worried about drinking and driving then just don't go to the event. If you want to be a very responsible citizen also call the local PD and report the event and asked them to stand by and arrest everybody that drives off the dealership to make sure drunk drivers get arrested in the spot!!!!!

Drive and then drink afterwards.... The more you drink, the more inclined to sign on that dotted line! Lol

1) Notorious - they wouldn't let you drive a Lotus, when you're a current owner?

2) Abe, is it true you will cover airfare for a serious buyer, if that buyer lives at least 2,766 but not more than 2,767 miles from your location?

Okay, how about a non-serious buyer looking for a free trip to LA and a drive in a Lotus?

Yep, the excuse was they didn't have one available as the one they can show me was a new arrival and not "prepped" or some nonsense like that.

If we notice some has been drinking..and believe me, it's easy to find out, then we would do the driving instead. That said, our whole focus is to concentrate on the driving aspects first before indulging in food and alcohol.

Typically the way these events go, the wives, girl friends or significant other does not want to do any driving and lets the other person have at it. Well rather than let them sit or walk around the dealership all bored, they can munch on foods and drink whatever beverage of their choosing including alcohol. Once the other person has done all the driving, he or she can join their partner and do the same while mingling with other drivers, Lotus executives and the sales staff. Towards the end we start putting away the alcohol (gotta save some for the staff and me ) and start offering water, soda or lots of coffee. Knock on wood, we've gone the last 15 years without an incident and the experience for our clients have been fantastic as they request to be on the mailing list for any future events.

We'd love for you to attend if for nothing else so you can see first hand how it's done and if you like it, you can tell others about it. Again, appreciate your concerns as it is valid.

Take care and hope to meet you.



Best regards,
Abe

It's not like non of us have driven to a restaurant that serves alcohol. Sounds like a great event if nothing else than to hang with other Lotus folks.

Hmmm... I wish I could tell you but I blacked out most of the time and couldn't tell you how I even got home.

Make sure when you pour one out, Perry doesn't stick his head under your bottle and drink it before it hits the ground.

Depends on whether you pour it out before or after we all drive.
