Ivans shed

Post by 1ely »

Not mini but Just finished watching most of these videos on youtube, Ivan Dutton tinkering with all his old toys, link is to a 1957 Lotus super seven, just blown away how quick this little car is, definetly worth a look and Ivan is a bit of a character as well.
Enjoy Francis

The video on the 2 cylinder prototype mini engine was a good one as well, you learn something new every day!

I'm sure there are more people on here who fancy a Lotus 7 than those who don't, I certainly do.

However! There is an important thing to bear in mind. . . . . . . . . . . .

Anyone over the ago of 40 driving an Lotus 7 looks absolutely ridiculous!

ah, but when you are driving, you can't see yourself, so it's OK :lol:

And yup, that is pretty much a top spec 7, or rather, it's actually a narrow bodied eleven!

And sorry, just to clarify, any man over 40 driving a Moke looks cool as fuck, right?

Asking for a friend.... :lol:

TBH, It's probably just what I tell myself to reduce the possibility of yet another bloody car in the shed :D
