A pretty good turnout for Lotus today: an Elise, an Exige, an Esprit, and my Seven...

Is that Esprit an X180R???

I'm pretty sure it's not an X180R. I've invited the owner to GYLO, next Sunday (09/22/19), 10:00AM. I'll ask him.

I hope you can come out to see the cars!

Looks like the correct wheels but hard to tell. The X180R has the 3 piece Revolutions, but other Esprits came with the single piece similar looking wheels with the black centers. Cant' tell from that angle. The interior of the X180R has an integral roll cage, and an alcantara interior.

Katie's, 09/28/19

A very busy day at Katie's - three Lotus in attendance. My Seven, Mickey's Evora, and a red Elise that I didn't recognize.

The pic of the chili red Exige with the CF wing in the pics from 08/31/2019 is from my second visit to Katie's with it. Purchased it from another member of the forum who had it posted here and then on BaT in July where I came across it where it went RNM. Hope to attend more in the future but it is a little bit of a drive from me!

Katie's, 10/05/19

A pretty good turnout today - but only a Westfield and my Caterham to (kind of) represent Lotus today - ???
We did have a gorgeous sunrise, and some nice cars.

Katie's, 10/12/19

On 10/12/19, Lotus attendance at Katie's started out slow, but ended up pretty amazing! Early on, my red Elise was joined by a yellow Exige.
Just about the time I left (~8:00AM), a white Europa arrived (I never caught up with the owner). Notice that the Europa is parked behind another very early mid-engine car. As I was about to drive away, Steve M. pulled in next to me in his Omega!

I’m planning to go to Katie’s this Saturday. I’ll look for you there. Your car is looking great!

Made it out, bit on the chilly side so it might be my last one until the weather warms, met d3m4n, great to meet you, saw one Evora. As luck would have it d3m4n and I pulled in right at the same time and parked out exiges side by side.

A strange day at Katie's. A slow start - not many people there early, but lots of spaces had been roped off by the owner of Katie's. It was a while before people started showing up, but we found out why the spaces were reserved - Wayne Carini of TV show Chasing Classic Cars was in the area, to pick up a TVR Griffith he had bought locally. Wayne had a small film crew there, and he had contacted some local friends to bring out some special cars: Bob Morris's Allard, Joe Barta's BMW 507, Ian Landy's 1929 Bentley, and one of Eric Zaussner's Moal hotrods.

A cold morning (31F), but a fair showing of cars today. That's my friend Caleb Yow behind my fogged-up Elise - he's up in the area for a friend's wedding.

A little of everything at Katie's, from a guy who was late for Halloween, to a tuner GTR.

A cold morning - my first day back after the trip to England. Turnout was lower than it has been, but quality was high.

31F this morning, but skies are crystal clear! A great day to drive to Katie's early. Another bonus: in cold weather, we don't have throngs of people everywhere.

A good selection of nice cars, though...
