Lotus Elan

Deciding to sell right or wrong? and thank you.

Well just submitted an ad for approval. I have decided to sell my +2. should appear in the ads section in a few days.

It has been a good few years since I have been active in the forums so much so I could not remember my old user name.

I wanted to say thank you to all the members who helped when I first got the Elan back in the 1990's and when I built my Zetec +2 (sold a few years ago)

I know I will regret selling the 130/5 I have had the car for 18 years. But too many toys not enough space or time.....

I made a video of the car here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WRDq8nJRHE&feature=youtu.be

Just seen your ad on ebay and amazed to find you are in HW. I am in Holmer Green and have a +2S130/4, same colour, which I am adding a Lotus 5 speed box to and changing interior to cream.
Looking at mine, up on my ramp currently with dashboard out and with an empty engine bay my advice to you would be "don't sell!" yours looks to be near perfect! (might consider a swap if you want a project :wink: ....)

I guess I will regret selling it, but have too many projects and another lotus to play with.

I find 1 dull every day car + 1 interesting hobby car for contrast is the most enjoyable any more stops being fun.

Good luck with the conversion.
