Lotus Elan

Elan Database

PostPost by: skyarch » Tue Sep 13, 2022 4:49 pm

I know that there was an attempt to start an Elan database a while back.
I've been back and forth with Andy Graham, (trying to find the # of an Elan that I've had), and mentioned that a serial number could be traced on the forums database.
Now I find that a database, or registry, which is up to date, may or may or may not exist!
Have there been any updates?

Let me know, by PM if you wish, what data you have and I shall see if I can be helpful.

Hold your horses guys!
The data that I have is not yet known. I asked Andy for a list of Elan DHC, SE, SS's that went to Lotus East in April 67, there couldn't have been that many going to the US. If I would have got the Serial numbers I would have searched the database for a lead, however...just curious if the car still is in existence!
I'm inquiring if there is a database of existing Elans. Andy asked for a copy it if there is.

This seems to work for me and has been around for years- looks up to date too.
