Lotus Elan

Hello New Here

PostPost by: tor » Thu Feb 01, 2018 9:50 pm

I am helping close the doors on the amazing yet crazy Sports car salvage which was located outside Charlotte NC

anyone in the area interested in parts, The owner is a bit of a hard nose, but his wife is being a bit better about selling off, I have a few things out already including heads for a Big Valve Lotus Motor and 2 extra valve covers and original Rims YET no centers, but they are in need of cleaning

the owner raced Lotus Europas and Elans and Tigers with SSCA :(


thanks for suggestions I dont like shipping these things to heavy and bulky

Welcome TOR,

I'd heard of a yard in the south east that had lots of British sporty stuff. Now that we travel from Florida to Ohio every year in Spring and Fall, we travel through Columbia. I'll send you a PM today.

The sad fact is he let amazing cars turn to dust. Or raced them and wrecked them. We close on the property in one week. :( thankfully the elans are being saved and will be restored.

Anything that might be of interest for a Plus 2? I travel past Charlotte frequently, and will this week in fact.

Looks like a S2 w/ a hardtop and a white pre-airflow coupe. Nice pair.
