The Tramp Stamp....

So, ColinM's new car turns out to be the most roundly disliked car on Seloc; the Exige tastefully vinyled to look like a Sussex girls waistline.

Fortunately Colin is a man of taste (eh, Ro?) and has changed the appearance of the car to something a little more palatable, some even may go as far as to say desirable.

Our good friend beaky has put his sausage fingers to good use again and sent us this report of the run in honour of Colin's new car and birthday.


"The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!


FleetLOC and friends gathered last Saturday to welcome Colin M back to Lotus ownership (and something about his birthday, but nobody was too bothered) ! Mind you, he was only out of if for about 2 weeks, but still, any opportunity to stand around in the mutual appreciation society is welcome.

Little did we know he'd be burning our retinas out with his new steed. The colour, appropriately named Isotope, was hardly noticeable, in the way that nuclear explosions are 'a bit of a nuisance'. After we had all put in some eye drops we popped off for a little FleetLOC run, down Alton way. It would not be a proper FleetLOC run without losing someone, so Brody and Fatwomble took it upon themselves to fulfill that obligation. Do we have a new Captain Slow in the making ?

We ended the morning at Loomies, and ate like pikeys, at Colin's very generous expense. The car, as you can see from the pictures below, is absolutely stunning. Colin's not bad either. If you're into that sort of thing."

Captain Slow? I think there's a glaring omission from this blog entry and that is that fatwomble and I did get left behind, only to beat you all there by about 15 minutes!

Oh dream on, you werent quick enough to keep up, then went off route direct to the end. Thats not beating.. thats cheating..

Off route? You mean the route that I suggested? Through Alton etc? You KNOW we did the route, either you got lost and did the wrong route or we beat you fair and square, either way I'm happy :)

The route is determined by the leader, all you have to do is follow them.. but apparently that was too much of a challenge.. dont worry, next time we'll all go extra slow so you can keep up..
