LOG 37
« on: Thursday,August 11, 2016, 06:38:19 AM »
We Lotus owners on the East Coast of the US have been blessed (again)! LOG 37 is going to be at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL next May 19th! The museum there is fabulous! It's mainly for motorcycles but they have the world's largest collection of Lotus cars. They also have a Britten Motorcycle which, even though I'm not much into motorcycles, this one is an amazing creature with an amazing story. The last time I was at Barber, it was being refurbished so I'm excited about seeing it.

Here's the promotional video: https://youtu.be/zGOPFyhq1MM

It's time for us Lotus owners to get ready for the gathering!!

Thanks for the heads up. Just earlier this week as I was flipping through some Lotus ReMarques I thought I would like to combine another LOG trip with a visit to the Barber Museum. Unfortunately the Lotus won't be ready for that kind of road trip by next May, but someday...
The Twin Cam plays the symphony whilst my right foot conducts the orchestra. At 3800 rpm the Mad Pipe Organ joins in.

It isn't going to be for another 9 or 10 months! You can do a lot in that time. Sure, you might have to quit your job and ignore your family, but consider the proper priorities!  ;D

I hope you will be able to make it anyway. It would be cool to have a lotuseuropa.org enclave!

Maybe not just with my Europa. I'll try and bring my M100 (My mom will drive it) and I know my dad will bring the Elise. The M100 needs some work unfortunately. Although, I have every part for the car to have it fixed but without a lift its hard to do anything on that car. Also the bumpers are off the car and its ready to be painted but we would rather do the engine work first. We'll see if we can get it down to Alabama but I know my Europa and my dads Elise will be there this year.
It will be great to see you again as well, and looking forward to meeting others at LOG37.

I will be there, without a Lotus and only at the Friday night reception and Saturday concours event. My wife and I had already accepted a wedding invitation for the same weekend in Birmingham. Go figure!

Will be great to finally meet some of you on this forum!

We'd like to go, and thanks for the emails about the event. Alas, we'll be somewhere in SE Asia then. Really want to see the museum there.

We'll miss you Andy. And you'll miss the museum. It's really fantastic!!


I hope you have a worthwhile trip to SE Asia. If you don't, it will be wasted!  :)

I just thought I'd ping this thread to remind folks about LOG 37 in Birmingham, AL the weekend of May 20. I'll be going through Charlotte, NC to get there as early as practical on Friday and leaving Monday. I'm organizing a caravan so be sure to let me know if you you'd like to join us!

We have a northeastern Lotus caravan heading down Wednesday for a 2-day trip, with a side trip to the "Back of the Dragon" Thursday.  Two groups starting out from NY/NJ/PA (PALS area) with northern group heading down Rt 78 to Rt 81.  The southern group is leaving from my residence (TaylorMadeClassicCars) in Haddon Heights, NJ using Rt 295 / Rt 95 corridor.  We are converging at Winchester, VA (Rt 7 / Rt 81) for lunch at 12:30PM.
We're a little short on Europas, so why not join in?
contact me if interested in joining.   I seem to be the only one from South Jersey/Delaware area?? :)

A friend and I are leaving from Raleigh Thrusday. We haven't set a time but the plan is to get there as early as practical on Friday. I expect our route will be to go through Charlotte to Atlanta via I 85 and then to Birmingham via I 20. Let me know if that sounds like we can meet up.
