Anyone know this car? EPC 394J?

Hi

New to the forum, and hoping to find a Plus 2 to work on.

As you perhaps guessed, I once owned EPC 394J. Was a 1971 S130/4(?) in white. I owned it around 1983, so it was 'only' 12 years old. From DVLA, I believe it is still on the road, and insured. Have some great memories of the car, and would love to catch a glimpse of it if possible.

No other car has quite had the same appeal, so I need another one!

Unless my memory is playing tricks on me, once I purchase one, I'll probably be back here for help and advice! :D

Thanks, Andy
Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?

Hi John

HA HA! :D Yes I remember those days (too) well. Though to be honest, I think people have posted on here that if you treat them right, there's no reason why they can't be reliable. I was very young then, if you know what I mean? :P

For the moment, I'll allow myself to be convinced! :lol: On which note, I just visited the Spydercars website last night. Wondering how Zetechs are viewed by folks here? Is lotuselan.net more for the purist? Don't really know why, but think I'd like to see a Lotus twin cam under the hood?

Thanks

Andy

Lotuselan.net is an open forum,there are lots of helpful people,some idiots (only a few) and some knowledgeable people...you'll find them out as you go along...naming no names etc.

As for modifications...each to their own..
