The North Yoerkshire Lotus Owners Club (NYLOC) meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Buckles Inn on the A64 just a bit South West of York. Most NYLOC members own something from the Elise range. However during the summer months you can expect the occasional Plus 2 Elan.

Welcome, Davieroy. There are four other forum members from NY that I have noted, though I won't name them, but most of them have posted little. Three of them had a +2 of some sort.

I had a S130/5 for four years or so, back in tthe 1980s, and it was terrific/terrifying to drive and a nightmare to maintain! But they should have settled down by now so enjoy it before tearing it apart, if you can. I look forward to hearing of your progress (and seeing pictures; tricky to post but just ask).

26/4088 1965 S1½ Old and scruffy but in perfect working order; the car too.

My regional club over here is mostly Elise-guys too, so I love being one of those oddball vintage guys- especially since I can't afford the more recent models! :mrgreen:
