Lotus Elan

So what does your Elan/Plus2 look like today?

I was standing in the driveway and one of the local AH 3000 owners went by. it was about 5:30 so I decided the weather isn't getting any better so off I went. just a quick ride and a stop or two. I took these pictures out at the mouth of the harbor.

Did you catch him, Gary? The AH 3000, I mean?

No photos of how mine looks today, but it's somewhat dirty ( and smiling inside, like me) after a very brisk run on the local 2 lanes. Just beat the rainstorms. :D

This is my "dry build" of my S3 coupe, I'm hoping to send the body to paint at end of October and am checking and pre assembling all the details prior to paint.

Gary, a picture of your Elan, 7 years ago is what inspired me to go green. Not knowing much about Lotus Elans back then, I had wondered why your coupe had the Elite 14 type door window shape, which I liked. :oops:

Bill

I went the other way, he was leaving town and I was going for some pictures. I stopped by one of the folks I know on the ride, he had a AH 3000 that I did some wiring work on a couple years ago. It was gone but in it's place was something that I don't much appreciate but can understand. Seems the traffic liked to congregate around the Healey and it made his wife uncomfortable. Here is John and his new ride.

Hi Mike

Glad to hear you were enjoying yourself. I guess I have plenty of time for posing now

George

I think you need a white S1, or a S2 if you can't find the S1 white.

Hi Vern

The Elan is coming along nicely, I remember it from ebay back in 2001 or so when Marc Fuller owned it. That Coupe has had a few owners that couldn't get it going . Keep up the great work.

Hi Sarto
26/4597 has been back on the road for 14 years after nearly 20 years of being in a terminal coma. A 3 hour dip in the winter Atlantic just does wonders for everything. I am just glad that I wasn't in for the swim too.

Must have been a crappy day for the rest of the world. Anyone else get out for a drive and some photos.

Sunday was a very nice day for a drive. Surprising little traffic on the Cape.

Well, this began as a simple respray. Hmm, let's pull the body to do the job right and fix some issues with the frame. While I'm at it, now's time to pursue the 5 speed conversion. Might as well rebush the suspension......

Too many ideas, not enough money.

I WILL be ready for LOG in 2012.

Went shopping this morning..................

No side repeaters, no orange indicator lenses and black bumpers. Will go and hide in a trench as the purists pass by! Of to Northern Spain next week so it earns its keep.
