Hello, I am the webmaster for Dereliott Conversions who were very well known Lotus Dealers of the 60's 70's & 80's. I intend to put some tech info on the site as soon as I have time but in the meantime some of you may remember Dereliott's. I have put a Lotus page up which may be of some interest and there is a free Live Chat page, please take a look at: www.dereliott-conversions.webs.com

Thanks for sharing, Mr. Webmaster. Very nice. I really enjoyed the Lotus pages; some brochures I had not seen before.

Best regards,

I remember this firm quite well, there was also another agency not too far from them called H E Russell who if I recall correctly (going back to early 70's) were also official Lotus dealers. At the time I was looking for a replacement for a Triumph Spitfire and elans were on my list inc TR6's. I remember the very first time I called to Derelliot's, one of the sales staff got talking to me and said to me something like "elans are outdated now- technology has moved on- I think their time has passed". He was trying to sell me a newish Elite.
