Hi, my name is Terry and I have had my Elan plus 2 for 53 years!
I have to confess that I am useless with computers so leave that sort of stuff to my wife Jacki so she will be doing any posts on my behalf.... I would rather be in the garage with my car.
I did a complete restoration back in 1986 and have done other bits and pieces to the car since then....
We are members of Club Lotus and meet with the Wessex group each month for a drive and a social get together with other like minded Lotus owners.... it's a fantastic way of having a good time. We also take the car to France each Sept, much to the delight of the locals who love looking at the car.
So glad I'm a Elan plus 2 owner!
