Looking for a Plus 2 Elan in the USA

It is some years since I posted on Lotus Talk. Life intervened. I am now in a position to buy that elusive plus 2 Elan that I have wanted since I was 15 growing up in the UK (I'm now 61 and in Hawaii). I am not looking for a concourse winner but equally I do not want a major project. If you are thinking of selling your plus 2, I'd love to hear from you!

Sadly no Lotus in my garage yet, just an MGB

I just saw a beautiful red one in Redmond, WA on Saturday. Good choice! Good luck with your search.

I'll keep an eye out for you. Also, try Lotuselan.net if you haven't already. Just got back from 16 days in Maui and was wondering what the cost is to ship a car to the Islands? Been to HI many times and we are seriously thinking of moving there in a few years.

I have not checked for a while but I think about $1000 from the West Coast.

It's possible that I may have to sell my project Plus 2. I'll send you a PM with the details.

I know of one 4 sale that is a driveable car. I'll contact the owner first to make sure it still is 4 sale, and will forward the information to you if still avaiable. Can't remember the price, but have seen the car in person. It was never advertised just a word of mouth thing.
