Ah....old age has its benefits...one of them being remembering Emma Peal.
For a lot of us, the Avengers was the first introduction to Lotus and the Lotus Elan.
Emma drove two of them during her short though memorable time on the show.
About 10 years ago, Diana Rigg (Emma) was driving from Toronto to NYC to take over the part that Julie Andrews as playing on Broadway. They stopped her at immigration at Buffalo to make sure she was not taking over a job that an American could take. Honest.
A friend and Lotus owner happaned to be the Imigration officer that took care of the matter. Talked to her about her Elan. As I remember she spoke very favorably about it. But to her it was just a car.
Remember her well------
I always thought Tara King drove an AC 428 DHC? couldn't shine Emma's shoes,however.
Emma Peel got that name because the producers of the show wanted a lead woman who would appeal to men(M)-- M Appeal---Hence Emma Peel------never forget her jump suits---------gotta go now-----------------:drool::drool::drool::drool::drool::drool::drool::drool::drool::drool::drool:
