Lotus Elan

New Elan owner

PostPost by: Morangles » Thu Jul 19, 2012 5:01 am

Hi everyone,

I am proud to say that I have just purchased a Lotus Elan.
It is a 1967 S3 DHC S/E.
I will post a few photos when it is delivered plus give you details of its history etc.
I am having a few jobs done first (new tyres, bushes, paint and updated replacement donut equivalents).
Can't wait!!

Welcome to the forums and congraulations on your car. We're keen to see some pictures!
I hope you will enjoy driving the car and tinkering with it.
There is a wealth of information and experience gathered here which has proved very usefull for me over the years.

Thank you so much for your very warm welcome.

In reply to your question, I am based in Paris and the car is coming from Sweden.
It is an S3 DHC which seems in fairly good condition having had a recent engine overhaul, but I am having one or two jobs done before it gets here

As soon as it arrives I shall post some pictures and give you a bit of historical information. I also look forward to corresponding with you all on the forum.

Hello Philip
Welcome to the forum.
There are plenty of fellow Elan owners in France and also members on Elan.net
With any luck some might be close to you and happy to meet up and give advice etc.
