Born, and brought home from the hospital (no seat belt (wtf)) in a baby!
Find out where the limits are, and start from there

Quite grippy tires, judging by photo 4! ;)

What a great looking car- just like my Dad's except for the color-Carnival Red vs. Lotus Yellow-even the dash cracks are the same! Imagine your VIN isn't too far different from Dad's - October 70 build 0033J. The coupes are great drivers, are more refined and look better than the DHCs but the silly ones amongst us want the airflow. I would love this car as a companion to my 69 Elan DHC plus I am close by in Northern Virginia but I just can't manage it right now. Good luck with sale and hope it goes to a good home.

Cheers, Mark Whitaker
