One year has passed since I posted the last update on this project.
In the past year, I have not worked on the Lotus. Because..... I have
made it to 1K status on United this year and I have
been working on the house and the shop. Rather than bore you with that
while you are looking for reconstruction updates, I will just summarize
in a few pictures. First... one year ago......
I spent the dry season building retaining walls, pouring concrete, and getting the shop plumbing roughed in. The retaining wall blocks weigh around 1 ton each and as a result, the effort was a bit challenging. You can see full pics here.
During the hiatus from Lotus reconstruction I generally had not been looking for things Lotus related on Ebay but once in a blue moon I checked and in late August I saw this:
No one can fight his destiny. BUT... that is another story and it starts here.
For now, the '97 car sits in the shop waiting for bandwidth. I think that she aspires to be something unlike normal Esprits now that she has two sisters to compete with. You know young girls ... they always want to be noticed.
That's the end of the update as of November 16, 2006
What??? You want to know about the house guest from New Zealand??? Well ... I did manage to spend some time in Maui with her in September (Yes that is a Lotus hat).
