Lotus Elan

Elan S3 in Greece!

PostPost by: GreekS1 » Wed Apr 27, 2011 10:21 am

Hello all!
here are some pictures of my S3 Elan. Its been living in Greece for the past 2 years now and is one of the very few in circulation here. We've enjoyed many classic rallies together as well as drives just for fun around Greece. The highlight though has to be The 2010 Euroclassic where we crossed 6 countries and completed 4,500Km without any incident!! An amazing experience!
For 2012 the plan is to drive to LeMans for the classic and then go on to the UK and hopefully join the Elan's 50th celebrations! It would be great to meet some of you there!

Enjoy the photos:

Nice pics - there's something about the colour quality that makes them look very 'period', this one particularly:

Thank you Robie,

I agree! The picture you mentioned was taken by Iphone3 that doesnt have the best of lenses or analysis.

Very smart classic Elan. I too like the first picture and the setting.

Vassilli? isn`t it? or has my memory gone completely. You seem to have missed any photos with both Elans on the Euro. Not only that but your memory must be fading as you did promise to marry our daughter !!
The Euroclassic 2011 is looking a bit beyond our means this year but we`re doing the 3 Castles and the Sivretta Klassic and various one day events.
See you next year maybe,
Jim & Carole
