Lotus Elan

Donington????????????? Who's going????????

PostPost by: elansprint71 » Wed Mar 19, 2008 10:19 pm

Looks like I've got a photo job to do, so I'll be there. The Elan will not, it has a long snagging-list of ridiculously small jobs, but the real reason is I get seasick on the concrete A50.

Maybe if there are enough of us we could invade Club Lotus again?


btw, new photos at:

I'll be there on the Saturday, definitely. I'm looking for a load of bits - I don't know what my chances of striking lucky are!

I will be there for both days with the S2 (LMY 41C). Lets call it a rolling restoration in progress.
Look out for a red S2 with odd seats in odd colours and one renewed door interior :!:

BTW. I was hoping to get a new roof from Sue Miller in time for the show, but sadly she has been let down by her supplier. There's a chance I can pick it up at the show but my Missus wasn't happy to consider the run without a hood (and she claims no knowledge of Risk Assessment) :lol: so I cadged her into re-inforcing the torn seams of the old hood this week.
Everything is quite brittle however.

Hope to see some of you there.

I'm 95% certain I'll be there on the saturday, hopefully in my +2 CTD 679J (unless the roads are plastered in salt :x ).

Not sure about the +2, I need to sort out the drivers seat. either fix the one in the car or take the eurobox in case I can buy a good second hand one at the show..

I'll be there with the old +2. It past the MOT yesterday so I'll be batting down the concrete A50. The old bus just keeps going. Just putting it through its paces ready for Spain and France in May.

See you all at Donington.

I am coming from the States! How do I find all of you at the show? This will be my first time in England and I am coming with a friend that has an Elite. I will be flying in on Wednesday and out on the next Thursday. Making a real holiday of it.
