Lotus to make pick-up truck!!?!

Did anybody else hear this today??I know they were trying to get into the American market but…!Apparently the first ever all aluminium jobbie.Ian [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]

Between you & me, Ian, RussT has been asked to put the protoype through its paces at Anglesey.Apparantly, his skill at driving his new VW (truck-a-like)was recently spotted by none other than Alastair McQueen.I also belive that Joe Mc Carthy is developing a kit to enable a jet engine to be “bolted in”, without the need to modify/cut the engine bay. He is currently sourcing an engine supplier - in Iraq.

Dad, I mean Mum, I asked you to keep that quiet! Mr McQueen was most surprised as I went past him in his factory S2 Sport Elise, and asked him a question from the Sunday Times crossword at the same time…

Now that’s just plain ridiculous! Alistair has much better things to do with his Sunday than the Times cross-word! [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image]

Development of the Jet Powered Elise is on hold at the moment, my supplier in Iraq got himself killed fooling about with a new shipment of “smart bombs”.
