Lotus Elan

Hello from New Owner, Long Island, NY

PostPost by: TrevorS » Tue Apr 13, 2021 7:42 pm

Hello everyone, I've just purchased a 1971 Elan with a Spyder chassis and Vegantune modified engine. I'm coming from a 1991 Esprit that I owned for 15 years. I'm looking forward to learning about the Elan and enjoying open top summer driving.

Welcome Trevor,

I believe there are a few members here from Long Island. Notably Phil (pharriso here) who will doubtless be along later. Where exactly are you hopefully you can get together.

Hi Trevor & welcome. Where abouts are you on Long Island? I'm in Huntington (Cold Spring Harbor)...

I'm assuming you're ex-pat?

Love to meet up & chat & even go for drives. etc... Great to have another Elan owner on the Island :D

Hi everyone, thank you all for the welcome. I'm in Port Jefferson, and yea, I grew up in England, in the suburbs of London. I look forward to meeting up, perhaps for a coffee, after I get the car, which will hopefully be this weekend.

25 miles apart, you’re practically neighbours!

Thanks everyone, I'm still waiting for the state DMV to mail me the registration paperwork and plates. They say on their website to expect 10 days after one's online application. So hopefully early this coming week, they have the money... Weather forecast is looking good. :-)
