I have been driving this Elan a fair amount, but I just finished my 72 Europa 2 year restoration and now have three Lotus’ in my garage.
Just returned from LOG39 (where my Europa won second place in the concours). Lot’s of Elan’s in the North East (well, to me more than 12 is lots).
A number of people are interested in my S2 Elan, but everyone needed to sell a car before they could buy this one.
Nothing drives like an early Elan. That is why Gordon Murray, the designer of the McLaren F1 has one in his garage and states it’s the best handling sports car ever made.
