Lotus Elan

Anyone know this car? in US.

I believe this was discussed a few years ago (Ardee, can you help me find the old thread?). It looks like a great original Sprint. I'm wondering if the video taker still has it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLwqwprVTSQ

Greg

Yep, this was a great barn find. The date on the video is Jan 2010. If you write a comment on the YouTube page he may respond. I recall that I tried to send him a message and never had a reply.

Greg, I remember the video. Seems to me it was located in Coldwater, Michigan about 2 hours from me, but I've never seen the car at a show or on the road.

My! The climate in Michigan must be just right for preserving cars!

He also has a Europa "barn find" video, but nothing more on the Elan.

Gee, two beautiful finds, brought back to life, while maintaining original paint, etc. Nice work.

How many more of these treasures can there be out there?
