I owned a 62 Elan that I bought new (#110) and was a Lotus dealer in the early 70's. I have had much experience with Lotus- and virtually every other British car. My father was a BMC, Austin and Crosley dealer in the early 50's and then a used sports car dealer until his death. I worked for him and then at the local multi-line import dealer until I started my present dealership in 1966. I am now ready to semi-retire. My first personal car was a 50 Riley 2.5 sedan and my second a 53 Austin A40 Sports convertible with a Jensen body and I still have my sanity in spite of that history.
