Interesting that "sick" is used the same way over here! :? :lol:

Glad to hear that the "yoot" of the world can still imagine something that old can still be "cool". :mrgreen:

He is not saying sick, he is saying sic. Which means really cool.

It`s all subjective but certainly if you think you`re cool, you`re definitely not. I`m sure I`m not cool..........so maybe I am.

I know I'm not cool, but I definitely think the Plus 2 is cool!

And . . . my 16 year old son and mid-twenties daughter and son-in-law think it's cool, too.

So it MUST be cool! :wink:

The + is by far the best looking of the Elan's.
Have you ever seen a picture of a tall guy in a standard ?lan?
Even Emma was a bit tall for one.
It makes it look like a toy.
The + has better lines, the long sloping rear looks much better.
I was looking at getting one, but didn't, the back bone chassis on Elans really has it problems and the lack of any safety features is a problem.
But still I did get a Lotus and I often check this forum just to see pictures of Plus Twos.

I?ve had my Plus 2 for a week and it still needs a little work before I can even start it, plus it has a lot of other things that need mending, to say nothing of a whole lot of 'patina?...but despite all that, the thing just seems to get cooler by the second! I'm really digging its old-school GT charm, yearning to enjoy its blend of performance and legroom, etc. It seems to drip sweet charisma the same way that a Mark Knopfler guitar-lick does. This car is way-cooler than I am, and I can only hope that even a faint smidge of that cool rubs off on me.

Am I biased? Definitely, but this car really is that cool. :mrgreen:
