New Member in RI

Hi Everyone Have 2 Elans in various stages of disassembly but have owned an Elan since the late 60's. Even drove it once in a while. Time for me to get back to Elan work so I joined the Forum. Previous member of Lotus West, COM and currently Lotus Ltd. Goal is to drive an Elan to the Lime Rock Historic Race in CT. Have not seen an Elan at Audrain Cars and Coffee in Newport so maybe I can be the first.
Happy to be on board.

Welcome from central NY. I was at the Lime Rock historic fest last year on show day, and although slightly rainy there were several Lotus in attendance. I was the only Elan. Great event, lots of uncommon cars - an elusive Esprit V8 SE parked next to me.
