Lotus Elan

Returning member.

Hi All,

I am returning to the forum after purchasing a former member's car. Many of you will remember Tim Mullen who sadly passed away I purchased his '72 Elan Sprint, Colorado Orange over White, in December 2017 from his lovely wife Joanna.

Overall, the car is in great shape but it has not been run in 19 years and I am going to have to do some work this spring to get it back on the road.

I previously owned a 1988 Evante 140TC and then a 2005 Chrome Orange Elise which I sold in 2009. I went to AA, Automobiles Anonymous but fell off the wagon this year and need to buy another Lotus.

Hope spring eternal and so I am looking forward driving the new to me Spring, the snick-snick of the transmission and the sound of the engine and exhaust.

Good to be back,

Jay Supnick

Welcome Jay!

Tim's car (0212K) was/is a beauty!

Please send me an e-mail (pph <at> lionheartsolutions.com) with your contact details, I run the Federal Sprint register & there are a few bits of info I'm missing on your car.

I have some pictures of your car that you may want as well.
