Anybody any idea who now owns this car (One on my early lotus cars) Its an s130/4 which was converted to a drop head and painted white.. :?

I would like to know who has it and if its available to buy. DVLA says no tax or mot since 2010...


Cheers guys...

Sounds like you’re getting the bug again.

Remember, owning a Lotus is a disease, there is no cure. Only treatment.....

Ah..You are so kind guys. :D

Truth is the bug has never left me.. I deeply regret selling my Sprint. Big mistake. I did not need the money so I dont know why I did it. Live and learn.

I am always checking out the forums to keep tabs on who is up to what & I would love to buy that +2 back.

Keep your eyes open please chaps

The update is much the same as last time. The Cancer seams to be under control but with one small worry. My PSA is gradually increasing the number now 1.9 is still very low. it is increasing by 0.1 per month as of now. Next jag is in June. Don't much like those but needs must eh!

The side effects from the treatment are still a PITA but the alternative is not good either! Still have the lead legs and get very tired very quickly which is a bugger at times but I am now very used to it. That's life for me now and I manage. So... Onward and upwards.

Question... What should I pay for a decent Eclat one of the last out and in nice nick. The guy is asking £7k which I recon is a bit rich.

What do you think :roll:

Hi Alex,
Good to see you posting.
An Eclat in nice nick is a rare beast, they have been in the doldrums price wise for so long and are now a very rare sight in any condition. £7000 for a mint example doesn’t seem an awful lot.

A few years ago you could pick up reasonable condition M100 Elans for less than £2000, S1 Elise’s for about £5000, look at both those cars now especially the Elise’s.
Kindest regards

Sorry Alex, I have nothing on that reg number.

Do you have the VIN for it, by any chance?
