    • Thanks for sharing this journey it was a great ride and you did right when you had the experience you got with the car not knowing they was just 3 where you are and passing this to someone else and letting them experience what you did on your journey maybe they will use it every weekend rather than a couple time’s a year your awesome and as you said you had a blast of a time with the lotus and you made it better than what you bought it and that’s the best part about it fixing it making it better and letting someone else enjoy it too 😊

  • Great video guys as always I got goosebumps when I saw all the people at the meeting and their cars. Truly a legendary car and sad to see it go. I started driving a Lotus at 17 even before I got my driving license and I have the exact same emotions about these types of cars; smile every time you get behind the wheel ;)

  • I think it'd be pretty cool to know the financial break down of purchasing, upgrading, and selling this car. On a side note, it's crazy to see how far MCM has come. I remember these guys peeling tint off of their mum's car in a driveway. What a great story and great production.

  • Wish more car collectors had the same mindset as you . Instead of hoarding cars and never putting miles on them ... you can’t take this shit with you to the grave . Enjoy it

  • Moog, one safety tip brother, NEVER lift before a hill, you then sacrifice that (front lift) with losing rear grip. Also never brake before the crest of a hill.

  • "A Man's gotta know his Limitations." - Harry Callahan I've driven Laguna Seca, Riverside, Willow Springs, Fontana Motor Speedway and others. In everything from 100hp SCCA cars to 800hp life takers. Nothing will make you respect a car and value life more than a close call. I have a new respect for Moog. He may come off as a bit of a Prat but he's an Honest car guy! Even if his music sucks. ;)

  • Perfect last drive, and I understand and respect your decision. There’s a difference in fast, fun, and familiar and a truly race inspired machine. Something with that much love and appreciation built in, it deserves an owner with the time and same love to put into it.

Driving is one of my only outlets and the last segment on the video about getting over your fear and feeling almost one with that car is why I drive. I love the noise and true freedom it gives. Moog you did such a good job describing why we must keep driving and enjoying every small drive. Thank you

I just figured if I paid that extra for expedited shipping, it would have been here, by now! Ya know what? I betcha it’s stuck in Customs. Uggh, definitely wouldn’t be the first time! Either way, let me know if you all get any new info from the shipping company. I’m gonna call Customs and track down where my car is.. thanks

  • I've only been in Gran Turismo, but Bathurst seems very much like the Nurburgring. The turns lull you into a rhythm and when you're not absolutely focused every corner can chuck you into the Armco or, if you're lucky, a sand trap. GT has that jump on Conrod straight; the sand trap ate me a lot. You're wise to back out of it in Edit: There are a lot more trees on the mountain in the game that give perspective for the driver.
