Lotus Elan

A +2 in Orl?ans area in France

PostPost by: spridget » Wed Jul 05, 2017 9:15 pm

Hi guys

I didn?t come here for a while, well I just want to find the man who drives a +2 in my area !
Last week, I had a meeting with a guy who?s often sell parts to me. We were near the highway toll where cars stop to pay (very expensive in France! ), go and sometimes throttle ... We were chatting when I have heard a motor sound I know, surprise! a red Elan +2 !!!!! You never see one in France and most are known by others who have one !
The driver saw me watching his car and smile, I?m sure he was thinking ?this guy likes my car but he doesn?t know what it is ? :D

Hi Franck,

Not mine but I was over in France until last Saturday for a couple of weeks, mainly with friends in the Sables d'Olonne area.

Good time driving and avoided all toll roads :D

Hi Alan,

This one was dark red with alloys
Most french cars are known !
Of course I?m a member of French Club Lotus. We have a few +2 in the club
On last Saturday we met up at Montlh?ry for the ? Lotus Festival ?, we celebrated the 60 of Seven and Elite and also the 50 of +2. Only 7 ones came
The weather was very wet on the morning and a bit less on the afternoon

Franck,

Il est plus que probable que je dispose de la r?ponse ? votre interrogation.

Une +2 a effectivement rejoint Orl?ans depuis quelques mois.

Au plaisir de vous lire.

Cordialement,
