PostPost by: LarrySprint » Wed Sep 25, 2019 6:09 am

Hello Everyone, I am a newish member and a life long fan of British cars. My first Lotus was in the early 70's, including Elan, Europa and Super 7. I have wandered away a few times , always returning to Lotus cars .Currently I own a 1970 S4 and two 1972 Sprints with sequential VIN's. It is not likely I will post much, however I am happy to talk cars or be helpful if possible. I live in Murrieta, CA. and am open to showing my cars and meeting forum members.

Welcome. Holywood3645 and I live in North San Diego County and would welcome a get together. The Golden Gate Lotus Club has a San Diego Chapter that has regular events almost monthly. The Elan sector could use an influx of more participants. The British Car Days show has been pumped up by the Chapter to try to get as many as 30 Lotus cars to the event. The weekend event should provide a far easier drive into San Diego than the normal weekday commute. Try and make it even if it is just as a spectator.
