To view many photos of the 66 S3 FHC LHD go to Flickr. Use [email protected] for the ID and sellingmylotus for the password. It took awhile to organize them.

I have been compulsively reading posts on LotusElan.net for at least nine years, probably more. I've posted a handful of times and can't find my old login. As to secretiveness, I do value my privacy.
This is a wonderful, amazing place. Thanks to all.

Has anyone else been able to access the Flicker account or am I the only one without the proper skill level? Mr. Seller is trying to help me but I tend to be a little thick at times.

I managed to get through earlier and found the many pics you have but I don't see one of the car in its entirety, ie, a picture of the car. Do you have any of those?
Thanks,
Greg Z
