    Joe I'm so sorry, met you on saturday and the car was beautiful. It'll turn up somewhere, not like you can easily hide one of these.
    1 year of neglecting my wife and children and all I got was this car... Totally worth it.

    Default Thursday update

    Lotus still missing

    Van and trailer have been recovered in Chamblee, Ga.
    Ignition switch damaged, but otherwise sounds like the van and trailer are OK

    Thanks to all - Joe

    Beautiful S2, Joe. Sorry I'm only seeing photos of it under these circumstances. I'll keep an eye out on the west coast.

    I apologize for the frequent "bumps", but I am in a 2 week window before the insurance declares a total loss, so I am hoping for a quick sighting/recovery.

    Updated 9/14

    STOLEN : 1962 Lotus 7 - Ford Van - HaulMark Trailer

    Sat 9/8 8PM to Sun 9/9 7AM
    Hotel Parking Lot: Hampton Peachtree Corners, 440 Technology Pkwy, Norcross, Ga 30092

    The Van and Trailer were recovered Wed (9/12) in Chamblee, Ga

    Lotus 7 is still missing


    1962 Dark Green/Aluminum Lotus 7 SB1478 - Fl Lic: 62 SEVEN
    Dark Green fenders and nose with polished aluminum
    Red interior and dash
    1500cc Pre-Crossflow Cosworth Ford

    This is a real Lotus 7 Series 2 restored to original condition.

    These are some of the easily identified (and hard to disguise features):
    - Right hand drive
    - Wooden steering wheel
    - 155x13 tires on Minilite rims
    - Air scoop on left side of hood
    - Tow ring under right front frame rail

    While these features "may not hold up in court", I did a nut and bolt rebuild of this car and can provide photos, details and unique modifications.


    If you see this car on the road or advertised, call the police, then call me!

    Don't be a hero and don't fall for a scam!

    Thanks - Joe Petty

    Here is a picture from the Norcross show, it was stolen later that night.
    The bonnet is behind the car leaning against the chain link fence.
