Don't see these on the road very often. Waited for the guy and had a nice chat with him. He was an older fellow and said he also has an old Europa. I invited him to the site, we will see if he comes.

I've bumped into 2 older Lotus owners (the cars, not necessarily the owner, although one was) here in town. Neither time was I in the Elise. They were both polite enough until I mentioned I drive a Lotus as well, then suddenly I was like a brother.

I think the 70's Elites were ugly, but I'd still grin ear to ear while driving one :D.

You mean nice Gremlin, don't you?

I had an Elan, like the Europas, Sevens, early Elites, and even Esprits, but man those '70's Elites were UGLY! Not worth the money it would cost to restore one, either.

Agree. They look like nice Gremlins, but they're Lotus bretheren :D
