Lotus Elan

After 33 years.....

PostPost by: CG901 » Mon Apr 29, 2013 9:54 pm

Hello Elan owners,
I owned a 71 S4SE from 72-80 but lived in the southeast and with the heal, humidity, plus monsoon summer rain, found it not the best climate for living with DHC Elan. Now, retired, and after 33 years of thinking about another Elan, I have found a '66 S2, just acquired. It is an original, unrestored car, carefully kept in this state by 3 previous owners. It will need a light mechanical restoration to keep it original. That will start later this year. I have already found tons of great ideas and solutions here on LE.net.
Current: 1965 S1.5 26/4004, 1966 S3 FHC 36/5192, 1958 Fiat Abarth 750GT Zagato, 1967 Brabham BT21B, 1988 Arrows A10B-04, 1991 Brun C91-001.
Past: 1971 Elan S4/SE DHC, 1972 Europa Special, 1980 Esprit Turbo, 1988 March 881-05, 1990 Leyton House CG90105

A belated welcome Scott! I too have an S2, though mine is from '65, please post some photos, I and I'm sure many of the forum members would love to see them.
