Lotus Elan

My Elans 50th Birthday today

PostPost by: cliveyboy » Wed Sep 28, 2022 9:40 am

50 years ago today 28 Sept 72 my Sprint was first registered.
I am going to have a party for it this weekend and trying to think of appropriate food and drink.
Donuts is the obvious one and some "Lotus" biscuits.
Any more ideas

With gravy dripped all over it to represent the oil leaks.

Lean on the usual suspects: scones with cream and jam.

I will be doing the same in November, as that’s the month/year on the build plate. First registered 2nd Jan 1973. So slightly different dates to enjoy a 50th. Maybe Inshould do it twice :lol:
