Got my Lotus in Sept 2006. Spent two days putting the first 1000 miles on it so I could go into the second cam during LOG 26. My first LOG started one week after I got my Lotus! I've been to every LOG since.

So far LOG 26 was the best LOG for me: TWO track days at the same track. One day to learn the track and then a second day to have a LOT of fun. The 'YouThreeTroubleMakers' club was started at that LOG; Me, XTN and Cody were all driving together out on the track in our 2006 Exiges and having a LOT of fun!

I'd really like some folks in Vegas and/or Southern California to put together something for a future LOG. Hell, I'd even volunteer to help coordinate things from Texas if the folks in Vegas and/or Southern CA need the help...

My first recollection of LOG is from LOG 14. I had my M100 for a couple of years and had already joined Lotus Ltd, but had not gotten so involved at that point to go to a LOG. I was convinced by my pals from PALS to go to LOG 14, so I made the 5 hour drive to Waterbury CT. As I arrived at the hotel I saw the Lotus dedicated parking area and pulled in. While I had seen several Lotus in one place before I had never seen 100!. There were Lotus of every kind and it took me several hours to leave the lot and get to registration. Every time I go to a LOG it seems the parking area is one of the biggest hubs of activity. When you attend your first LOG you'll see what I mean.

Kyle;

I see some big gaps in your collection 1956 - 1971, 1974 - 1991. You have to do something about that.

Yes Dean, I think I need an S1 or S2 Elan, a Cortina, and a Guigaro Esprit. I kinda have an Elise because I'm storing my brother's '05.
