After I sold all my classic lotus cars (Elan S1 & S2 & Europa TC) I went back to where I started, an Elise. Of course I couldn’t help myself and took it apart to modify to my standards. These are such great cars and they are “bullet proof” with the Toyota engine & trans.

Straight from Hollywood into a wet factory hall in Germany - and forgotten for decades. It‘s light blue, mid engined, got pop up headlamps - so its fine with me...

'66 Porsche 912. I bought it a decade ago without an engine. Installed a hotter 2.2 six. '63 Ghia. Found in a garage in my neighborhood where it had been waiting for a decade after owners moved it from California to Montana.
