Bienvenue Nicolas.

Your elan is the same colour as my 71 Coup?, I am about 90kms south of you (well everywhere is south of Calais :oops: ) let me know if ever you are going to any Lotus gatherings (rassemblements) in Les Hauts de France and I will try to come.

Welcome to the forum. Great looking car. The registration number is close to that of a factory road test car PRO 821D, was yours an old factory car?
