    Carlton is worth a fortune if it’s genuine. I would be knocking on the door!

    Two of my mates own Lotus Carltons, Jas who has the unit next to mine owns 2! and Lee Obi another mate owns another.
    When people come up to my unit, they are usually gob smacked as I have two Tickfords which at least one is usually there, and Jas next door has his Carltons.
    Here's a video of Lee Obi driving his Lotus around Matchams race track, which we always thought he was mad doing as so many people are shit drivers and could have smashed into him.
    There's also other videos of him going around the Ring in Germany if you do a search on youtube.

    Here's a pic of one of Jas's Lotus Cartons with a couple of my 280's
