I've just purchased a 1997 Esprit V8. Location Charleston, SC. Would like to keep in touch to trade experiences and learnings.Another Lotus owner in Fort Mill, SC. 1997 Esprit V8. Sorry I didn't see this thread sooner, was just up in Asheville two weekends ago staying at the Grove Park Inn, but will be making some day trips up there in 2020. Also, was just at Greenville Cars & Coffee last weekend, which is just a short trip down for you guys. But I would drive up for a get-together, and would also be interested if LC3 gets revived.
