Lotus Elan

Elan+2 owner in Jax, FL USA

PostPost by: Steve in Jax » Tue Jul 21, 2020 6:19 pm

New member but long time Lotus owner. Bought new in 71. Unfortunately it’s been quite the love-able problem child. Has spent more years in the shop or long term storage than on the road.

Making one last major push to restore, sort out long unresolved problems and reverse age related deterioration.

Have a lot of problems and questions. I hope you can help me restore it and recapture the excitement it provided when new.

Welcome Steve,
Good luck with the restoration. I’d love to see some photos. There are a lot of Lotus owners in Florida that should be able to provide moral support!

Hi Steve,

I'm just a couple of hours up the road in Georgia. Happy to help with anything Lotus. Got quite a few hours under my restoration belt.

Keep us informed of your progress (or frustrations).
