Lotus Elan

Out with the new, in with the old

PostPost by: Certified Lotus » Sat Sep 06, 2014 12:06 pm

I have had three Lotus cars in the past 9 nine years, one Elise and two Exige S. Decided to stop doing track days, sold the wicked fast car and went old school with a 1964 Elan S1. All Good :lol:

We talked last year at LOG. Your Exige was really nice, I am sure the Elan is/will be, too. :D

Thanks guys! I have a lot to learn about these cars and am looking forward to restoring to OEM as a number of parts aren't right. But I have a great car to work with. Hopefully I can count on all the knowledge with this group :)
