View Full Version : Bloody broken leg..

Now I've been asked to put my car into the club display at a car show at our Tradex building here in Abbotsford. The car hasn't seen the light of day for almost a year and a half, and although nothing is wrong with it, I doubt that it would even start!. The worst thing is that after pegging around it on crutches getting it resurrected from it's long nap, I can't even drive it to the show ( one of my great pleasures is taking the car to shows cause it's not been often in my life that I have had cars nice enough to be in proper car shows, and the Lotus is very nice..). I'll have to get one of the club members to run it out there and back.. I can't even fit in the passanger side with this cast on!

I swear I'm seriously thinking about selling my bike. This is the second time a motocross bike has ruined my spring through injury ( ok it's me.. not the bike..)

Ok life is good again.. The Lotus fired up with minimal fuss, and seems to run just fine ( man it sounds good, I can't wait to drive..)

I went to a fair amount of trouble to recover portions of the seats, in order to keep the origional look of the material intact. The ear;y cars don't use the same pattern as the later ones, and no early recover kit is available. Now looking at the seats I can see that the old stitching is letting go all over the place. I guess that's what you get dragging the seats out of 20 plus years of dry storage, then putting them back into the real world..

Small thing really, nothing that a wad of hundred dollar bills couldn't cure.
