Hey guys, I'm going to be heading to Dietsch Works from SF and wanted to see if anyone wanted to meet up tonight at Santana Row. I have yet to meet any other fellow Lotus owners since I first bought my car a little over a year ago. Would be nice to have a quick meet and greet.

A little far for me today--but if you want to meet up with other locals maybe you could make it to the monthly Golden Gate Lotus Club meeting on Friday in Hillsborough. It should be well attended. Some info at GOLDEN GATE LOTUS CLUB - Lotus Car Club for Lotus Enthusiasts - Track Days, Autocrosses, Meets, Tours, Vintage Racing & More!



You don't have to be a member to attend a meeting. You can PM me if you need directions.
Cool, thanks for the info JLSELISE

I made an appointment with Rob to bring my car in next Wednesday. He said it's going to be a full day's worth of work so I should be there for a while.

+1 I actually just left Yard House :(
Beer o' clock!


On a side note....has anyone changed out their stock brake lines for the Sector 111 stainless steal ones themselves? Rob is super cool and his staff is all cool and down to earth too. But he quoted me for 3 hrs worth of labor to change out and bleed my brake lines. I've done brake lines myself before on my other cars and 3 hrs seems a bit excessive :shrug: Thoughts?

Yea, I just noticed this today. I was all over the place yesterday, but could of swung by. Since you have to be at Rob's next Wed, I'm thinking maybe I should change my appt from Tues to Weds (my thing is quick), and then we can go hang out with my car..maybe I can schedule another Lotus lunch? I'll post in the other thread to see if anybody is interestedfor next Wed.

I dont know crap about cars, so Rob just handles all of that for me. He might not be the cheapest, but I like the work, especially if its done by Jon, Herb or Rob himself.

Actually I even swung by Rob's yesterday around 3pm.

Based on the newsletter, the meetings arent always in Hillsborough. I've seen it in Saratoga, Mt View, Los Gatos, Menlo Park and some other cities before.

As above--the meetings are traditionally the 3rd Friday of the month and are held at member's homes all over the Bay Area (but mostly Peninsula areas).
And, FYI, it may be a bit of a misnomer to call them meetings, because they tend to be ~90 % social gatherings (often around garages and cars ;) with some light refreshment) and 10 % business.

Hey John, I might actually have to change my appointment to Tues so you don't have to change your appointment date haha.

Just changed my appointment to next Tuesday, the 19th. Let's try and have a get together later on that day? John, when are you taking your car in? I'm going to try and get there right when they open since they said it would take almost the whole day.
Let's try and have a get together later on that evening.

Ok, that's fine muffins. We can meet sometime in the evening. I'll be taking in my car around 10:30am. I don't drink though, but I wouldn't mind a ginger beer or some bottled root beer..too bad not all bars carry them.

I might be down even though Santana Row is a bit of a trek from where I am. I might even take the Lotus...

Haha, all good man I proly won't be drinking either since I'm going to have to drive back to SF. I'll be at the shop by 9 am so I'll see you there.

Doooo it! Your car looks pretty legit from what I see from your avatar, it'd be nice to see it in person

I'm at Dietsch Werks now dropping off my car. How about we meet here at 6:30 and we can roll out to Santana Row or something.
I'm coming from Oakland so really the earliest I can be at Santana Row is 7:30 since traffic only dies down after 6:30. If that doesn't work, then please meet without me.
