My passion for british sports cars started 30 years ago. As young man I acquired an aluminium bodied V8 beauty in Maidstone and imported her to Switzerland.
A few years ago, my focus turned to fibreglass cars and I bought a TVR Cerbera which is joy to drive but was a pain to pass the Swiss homologation and to have it registered here.
The aluminium bodied car is now sold and the space is occupied by my recently acquired Elan S4 Sprint 1972.
She is fun to drive but will require some work until I officially register her. At the moment, me and my youngest son are taking off all the bits to prepare her for a new paint.
Interested to know if there are some Swiss owners here !
I will attend the classic car meeting http://www.osmt.ch/ (check it out) in May as Lotus will be the guest club then.
Hope to meet you soon !
