Subject: RE: [lotus-cars] WHO KNOWS THE NOSE
I have been patiently reading your notes for a few days now, waiting for something to have an opinion about, and by George I think I've found it. I am a fairly new Lotus owner, with a virgin-like 6 months of Lotus based pleasure under my belt - however I have had a badge based experience worth sharing. I stopped my little Elise in a small town whilst out on a Sunday afternoon whizz, to procure some liquid refreshment of the ale variety. As I began the clamber to alight my vehicle, I was approached by what can only be described as 'a fit bird'. [coloq. eng-Lang] The afore mentioned female enquired in a disappointed tone as to what kind of kit-car I was driving - as she did so, she spotted the nose badge. The sight of the badge won a nod of approval from which a conversation ensued. Said conversation continued in the pub over a beer, and concluded the following morning when I picked my trousers up from her bedroom floor. An experience I attribute entirely to the small p!
lastic adornment on the nose of my car.
Remove yours at your peril!!!
