If I wasn't knee deep in my own Mk1 Cortina...

That said, I will never understand this 'tribute' thing especially with Cortinas.

Those of us who know these cars will immediately know that it is not a Lotus, those who don't know these cars won't care anyway.

I have no problem with improving on these cars in this fashion but to represent it as a Lotus Cortina, to me, is just plain daft.

I may give it an eyeball next week if it is still around though...

I was just about to post this. I like it it. A lot. And as someone who has owned to V8 powered tributes, I approve of this message.

$14,500 will probably be Canadian which is $10,720 US today. Sure couldn't build a car like that for that kind of money.

For what it is worth, I emailed AND left my phone number as requested by the seller.

Still waiting...

For what it is worth (2) it is listed in two different areas, one in Vancouver, one on Vancouver Island, not that that means anything, but...

As long as you don't put a Sherwood Green stripe on the sides... Smile

You do know that the first Lotus Cortina was a Lotus Anglia?

Of course you do, dunno why I said that.

If I had to guess, I'd say it has more to do with the owner liking the looks/history of the Lotus but not being able to own one/wanting to put a Toyota drivetrain in a real one (in this case). Either way, that car looks like a lot of fun!

It floated through my head, but what fun is that. Im thinking a nice pastel, a grey or British Racing Green would be hot. Or a nice maroon or red. So many options.. Shocked
