EDIT:: We are meeting Saturday 8/4 at 12:30 at Carlock Motorcars. 1599 Mallory Ln. Brentwood, Tn 37027 Hope to see you all there!!



I was speaking with a Lotus owner in Nashville ( @lotusquacious ) and we were wondering about any local Lotus clubs. Is there one? if not, who would be interested if we started one? I think we could have some great drives, events, wrench days, tech sessions, parts swapping/trading/selling, help each other out type fun!

Give me your thoughts and let's see if we can't have some fun!!

Thanks,
T.J.

Seems as if there are several owners in the Nashville area. Add the Knoxville & Chattanooga areas, (Tail of the Dragon FTW) and you have a LOT of potential...

We have family in Hendersonville, but we can't bring the whole tribe to visit in the Esprit. :crying: But if something was going on, I'd try to attend. :laugh2:




Anybody inquired at Lotus Ltd?

I sent the following message to "lotussandy" to the address listed above this morning.

Greetings Andy,

* A few Tennessee and other regional members on Lotustalk have been discussing getting more active by forming or joining an existing *club in the Nashville area *to celebrate and enjoy our Lotus cars together. *It was suggested we first contact you to determine if an existing structure might serve our needs. *Included in those of us who are interested in sharing and promoting our Lotus passions are myself (Nashville located Evora 400 owner), a certified Lotus mechanic (TJ at Carlock) and a few other folks who own Elises, Exiges or Evoras. *

I volunteered to contact you to determine if this might be of interest to you and if so, to determine how we might connect with you and any *organization already in place. *You may reach me at: *lewxxxxxxxxx.net* (redacted for spam reduction!) or view and add to the discussion on the Lotus Talk forum here: * *https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f122/middle-south-lotus-club-459522/

Thanks in advance for any insights you might provide us. *

Hi Tony. I'll call you now. I hadn't thought of attending LOG but I'm considering it now. I'll know in a few days if that's a realistic possibility. If I can make it so, add one more Evora to the list.

I just got off the phone with Tony (TVACC). He had a lot to say and was very enthusiastic about us firing up a chapter to serve the region. I think we should organizing a meeting to gauge interest and form a cadre. I'm happy to organize that or help somebody else to. Lotus Ltd. would support us in that as well but I don't think we need help just to meet each other. I gather Lotus(US) is taking renewed interest in supporting enthusiast groups and that sounds encouraging as well.

So I'm putting together plans to drive to LOG 38 to meet and greet. I'd love to have some company (and help, ideas etc) so if that sounds interesting, let's talk. This can happen if we want it.

I will keep watching this thread and am definitely interested in local events. As far as LOG goes, I have other plans that weekend and won't be able to attend. Plus the Exige is a bit loud/uncomfortable for a trip that long...

I’ll check my calendar. If I can make it I’ll come that way. I’m in Knoxville area, but grew up in the Nashville area and still have family there. Esprit owner here.

I will try to join, but I have a work kickball tournament that I committed to and I don't know how long it will last. Definitely interested in finding excuses to drive more and meeting people!
