Lotus Elan

Good to have her back.

I got my Elan back home this week from my friends house where it has been stored since last November. I took her out for an hour long drive out in the country today and she ran faultlessly in the spring sunshine.

Thanks for the compliment.

The most frustrating thing was that I couldn't remember how to fold the hood properly, I had to dig out the workshop manual for guidance and I struggled to make sense of the the pictures.
