Lotus Elan

Another Elan back on the road

PostPost by: elan_fan » Sat Jun 25, 2011 5:55 pm

After one of those temporary periods of non use, in this case 11 years I'm happy to report that my Elan flew through the MOT test and is back on the road :D . All the main stuff is in perfect order and I'm just attending to the tiny things (though that is surprisingly satisfying) such as making the courtesy light work. I'll post some pics up after I've polished it but for now I'm pleased to say that another Stromberg fed Twink is rattling peoples windows instead of becoming another ebay victim or worse still a zetec bitsa :wink:

Ah but Strombergs have the additional rarity value which the ubiquitous Webers and Dellortos will never achieve :lol:
