Did some early shopping down at the Bay this morning in the Lotus.  Wore my  'Seriously Uncool'  T shirt (courtesy of Top Gear).  Got a few interesting comments.

BTW rx an email from Mike Bennett a couple of days ago (Lotus head honcho in Adelaide) about his power cut dilemma.  Couple of hours later it was all over the press.

My Getz doesn't even have a water temp guage... just low or hi warning lamps...

so i have no idea if it's effected by the heat or not. :confused:

But it drives the same.

The a/c is super cold.... goosebump cold...

I drove a non a/c open car in extreme heat... sheesh..... enuff already!

Of all the places you'd expect a Lotus group run to go , I wouldn't have guessed this one. :eek:
