So, this olelongrooffan is sitting in my new cube the other day, yeah, I actually now have a cube with a window which allows me to see potential customers entering the lot at the same time as my fellow sales dude. But, more importantly, it allows me to see the vehicles entering our parking lot and, if desired, check them out. Well, when I spotted this one entering the lot, I knew I would be sharing it with my fellow Hoons.
Yes, it is a late model Lotus owned by the very gentleman whose has a particular interest in unique British automobiles. No, I’m not talking about standard run of the mill Triumphs and MGs. No, he owns a Daimler 250, an Austin Gipsy, a Morgan Plus 4, this one and many more I am sure. Hell, during BiketoberFest this olelongrooffan saw him cruise by on a vintage Triumph motorcycle with an equally vintage sidecar. I guess he does love him some all things with British mechanicals.
Other than the new Fiat 500 with the canvas sunroof I have seen him sporting around town in, this is the newest vehicle I have ever seen him drive. And it is PMY to say the least.
Yeah, another sweet ride in Bob’s livery. This one was developed at a cost of $55 million while under GM’s stewardship and contained an Isuzu power plant.
Although this ragtop possesses a Continental Classic Motors Hinsdale dealer plate, a quick google search did not show a website for that firm. All things wiki does mention there were only 3,855 built between 1989 and 1992 with only 559 brought here to these United States of America. Yeah that dude has some rare shit that is for sure.
After capturing these images, I wandered back into the parts area of my workplace and asked Bob if he owned any cars with a fixed roof? He pondered my question and responded with, “Yeah, I’ve got an E Type someplace.”
I think he does it just to make this olelongrooffan even more jealous.
