Re: Celebration for sale

The Celebration first mentioned by Phil, H15XEL, and supposedly sold for £17K is in the Classic Car Auctions sale on 24th September. It is with a guide price of £12K - £15K. Something odd here. The CCA site even has the same photos. https://www.classiccarauctions.co.uk/cca033-lot-5173-1991-lotus-exc...

Re: 2 Buckled Wheels!

I acquired 5 "new" refurbished OZ wheels from Lotusbits a while ago as 2 of my original Celebration wheels were out, 1 had been kerbed a long time ago, but the other 2 seemed OK.
I have the original wheels which are available but would need a refurb.
Please contact me if you are interested.

Race Retro 2022 OFF

Unfortunately Race Retro at Stoneleigh will not be taking place in February 2022.
It will return in 2023.

Absolutely Ridiculously priced. Perfectly suitable tyres are available by the set for the price of one of those. Talk about milking the brand :shock:
I think the price is largely dictated by volume. 215/50 R15 hasn't been a standard fit on anything for years.

If the wire is not connected the gauge defaults to full.
