Lotus Elan

WTB: Elan rough driver / project in USA or Canada

PostPost by: tdskip » Fri Apr 12, 2019 7:49 pm

Good afternoon gentlemen. I've had quite a few MGs and TRs and am ready to give an Elan a go. I'm a hands on guy and actually use my cars so a car that could be made to be a good driver would be ideal, cosmetics aren't super important to me.

I made the "mistake" of driving a friends car and am now hooked.

I am in SoCal but shipping is OK as makes sense for the right car.

Thanks!

Thanks for the response mate, probably need to keep the focus on North America for now.

Have a good weekend!

I have a red S4 that I'm thinking of selling to reduce my inventory of Lotus projects. I'm primarily a Europa guy and the Elan is too far down on the list of projects to get to behind my Europas. Send me a PM and we can discuss this. I'm located in the San Diego area.

Hi there - I wanted to touch base to update this thread to report that I have found an Elan to focus on.

Thank you to all who I was in contact with and to everyone for their welcome to the Lotus community.

This car will need a lot of recommissioning and all the usual things that go along with cars of this vintage so thanks in advance for humoring my questions on the technical forums.

Thanks!
