Lotus Elan

Whose Elan is this? SoCal

PostPost by: gjz30075 » Sun Jul 21, 2019 11:45 am

Found this pic of a really nice looking S2 at a monthly Cars and Coffee event that happens somewhere in
Southern California. Does it belong to anyone on this forum? Does anyone know who it might belong to?

So a double duty response here…that looks like the other Elan owned by the gentleman selling the unfortunately wrecked S3 parts in the for sale section. I would see this one quite regularly at another C&C and always gravitate to it - it’s a really beautiful example and he’s a true enthusiast.

I happened to see the car below yesterday in the west valley and stopped to take a look. Looks like an S1 (taillights, window pulls) but with knock-offs and a newer dash. Seems original and enjoyed :)

Would be interested to find out if it’s local considering my S1 is new to the area. Haven’t seen this one before at a local event.

Yup, that looks like Don's car. He has a few and is a regular at C&C events

Not the same car…this was an S1 with body-colored bumpers. Besides, not in the kind of condition I’ve seen Don’s cars in :D

I was referring to the first pic, it’s definitely not the same car as the second one

Possibly an early S2 like mine (which has standard wheels).
