    Heart warming story on BBC website;

    ----------------------------------
    A Lotus enthusiast who suffered a mini stroke while restoring an Esprit was amazed when online friends finished the work for him in secret. Simon Pritchard, 36, from Abergavenny, had been in the process of rebuilding the 25-year-old car when he fell ill.

    When members of the Lotus Esprit online forum website heard, they donated money and time to fix it. The original 18-month project costing £25,000 actually took his friends just five weeks to complete.
