Howdy, My Lotus ('06 Elise) will be delivered this week (May 12 +) and I am excited! How about anyone in the area contacting me to talk Lotus? I live in SW Loveland and like to drive in the mountains. My wife usually rides with me and likes to meet other car-couples. If you live in this area give me a call. My phone is 669-1588.

I look forward to meeting other Lotus folks.

Happy Trails,
Dusty

Welcome abord. Down in Arvada. Maybe we could meet in Boulder for Dinner some weekend (Islands?).

Keep an eye out for skymaster's drives ( North CO drive 5/9 ). Great group of people. Had three Elises there yesterday, and fourth would even be better.

Enjoy the ride.

Welcome Dusty and congrats! There's nothing like Colorado mountain cruises in a Lotus. I've worn out plenty of sets of rear tires so far!

Welcome! I'm down near Pikes Peak, but maybe I'll bump into you (figuratively ;) ) at a group drive one of these days.

Doug,
What is the "skymaster's drive"? Where, when, etc.

Is anyone from this forum going to be at the Concour at Arapaho community College? I will be there but with my 356 Porsche. Maybe we can meet up and shake hands. I am eager to get together with Lotus folks. This car is going to be a ball!!!

I always go to the Concours at ACC-it's a great turn out with a lot of rare and interesting cars-I drove the Lotus last year and barely made it out of the parking lot, there were so many people stopping to ask questions about the car. Maybe I should have put it in the show, but usually there are lots of Lotus cars there.

Enjoy your Elise,
I am involved with LOCO (Lotus Colorado). Actually we were out on a drive today, it was a bit wet and cool but no problem for a British car! We have memembers driving all types of Lotus, all the time.
We meet the last tuesday of the month, let me know and I'll get you in the loop.

Thanks for the responses. I can see this is really an active group. My car is coming in from California and is canyon red/biscuit. They tell me it will be delivered Friday or Saturday. I am really eager and will post some pictures when it arrives. In the meantime, LotusFan2 (Ft Collins) give me a short PM and I will give you my address and phone. I am sure the wives can commiserate while we talk Lotus.

Happy Trails,
Dusty

Watch this forum for drives etc. Also, are you a member of the local Lotus club yet, Lotus Colorado (LoCo for short)? They are an active bunch. See

Hey new guys,

Another LOCO here.
I live in Westminster, work in Boulder (airport blvd)
My Esprit is in Loveland currently (completely apart)

I went on the drive this weekend with jallingt and the other LOCO's.
I've been in the club since '99, about a year before I bought my Esprit.
Good group of people.

Definitely join the Yahoo Lotuscolorado group.

I've seen 3 Elises lately (in 3 days) none are in the club;
1)a silver one works across the street from me on Airport blvd.
2)an Orange on Ft Hills Pkwy in Boulder
3)a red on HWY-36 near Interlocken

Help! I had new tires put on my new car ('06 Elise) the day after it was delivered and one of the rear wheel studs broke off while being torqued (72 lbs). Where can I get a new on FAST??

Thanks for any help you can give me. I am eager to get this car on the road.

I am guessing Ferrari of Denver. I know from Loveland that is way south. If you want I could pick up one tomorrow (I dont work far from there) and meet you further up north (I live in Arvada).
