Moral Victory for Lotus

The car show at Lee Hall was moral victory for Lotus and Se7ens. The European up to 1984 class contained several very nice Mercedes Benz, a two owner Porsche 365, Bentley, two Rolls Royce and a Ferrari 365 driven by a cougar. Oddly there were only a couple of Midgets representing MG and a single Triumph. When the final ballot was counted our Seven took home the runner up award in what was apparently a close fought battle between our 1958 Seven series 1 and one of the Mercedes. It is not often that a Seven places over a Ferrari in a people's choice car show.

All in all it was very nice day. I met some nice folks. Several kids had their picture taken sitting in our car. I gave the TR3/NSX owner a brief ride that seems to confirm his enthusiasm for a Se7en. Even brought home something for the I Love Me wall.
