Lotus Elan

Let it snow, let it snow & snow & snow...

Well here on Long Island we ended up with up to 32" of snow Friday into Saturday, it just kept on coming!

4 hours without power got us worried that it would be a repeat of Sandy (6 days..) Here are a couple of pictures>

p.s. I hope Gary & others in MA are OK, they even showed Gary's town on National news...

I'm guessing VW Golf or a Mazda under the snow.

I'm pretty sure the top car is a Range Rover .... Do I win the prize?

The other white car - Smart Car?

a BMW 1 series, then ? makes more sense for an Elan owner, and a beautiful car.
