Hey folks,

We're moving from Atlanta to Chattanooga in the next few weeks and I was curious if there were any other owners in the area. I'm excited to finally have some decent roads in the backyard.

I just moved from there last year! No other Elises I know of, but there is a black Evora S and an older Esprit that are very active with the cars and coffee. Roads around there are fantastic.

Thanks! I'll be sure to check out their C&C.

Let me know if you do head to a Cars and Coffee here in Chattanooga. I took my Elise to one last year.

Also we have a local SCCA group that has an autocross program that I take the Elise to.

Not far from Knoxville, striking distance to 129. Great car scene. Congratulations on getting out of ATL!

It appears that I just missed the May C&C, but I'll definitely bring my car out next month.

Hi Doug,

I have a 1978 Esprit S2 World car. We live here in North Chattanooga, I am in need of a new clutch, I’m pretty sure my clutch facings are burned.

Any luck in finding a mechanic ? I didn’t want to tackle this one myself.

I'm not aware of anyone in the area that's qualified to work on an Esprit. It's probably worth taking to one of the specialists in Atlanta. I'd give Jason Harris in Alpharetta, GA a call. I haven't used his services before, but I've heard good things.

I'm in the area and possibly acquiring an Esprit soon ... any luck on skilled mechanics in the area as of late? I've been to the C&C a few times (had a 996tt, M5 dinan)...I remember the fellow with the older Esprit. And I've seen a few newer Lotus cars around. That's the only Esprit I know of.

Someone at my wife's company owns a black Esprit, but I haven't spoken with him. I haven't had any problems with my car since moving here so haven't done much research re: mechanics in the area.
