Lotus Elan

Hello from Aberdeen

PostPost by: Aly » Fri Jun 27, 2014 8:35 am

Hello, I'm Alistair and live in Aberdeenshire Scotland.
I don't actually have a Lotus, although I think they are fabulous looking cars - I have 60s fords which as you all know some use the same pre-Xflow block as some of the lotus cars of same era.
I am a great fan of the ford derived lotus engine and hope to find one that I can build and put into my Anglia someday, Just now I'm running 1500GT engine which I have 5 of.
Pleased to meet everyone in advance.

Hi Aly and welcome

An Anglia with a Twink is going back to the original way Lotus did the development work on the prototype engine. Hope you do it someday.

Welcome Alistair...I believe the Lotus Anglia was a left-hand drive car...something to do with the steering column I believe?
