1968 Lotus 51 Formula Ford
I joined to reply to a thread about a Lotus 17 sports racer project / barn find that I believe was raced by my dad on the East coast when I was very young. My family has a history with other Lotus. My dad also had a very nice Europa with the big valve twin cam in black & gold livery. I got to drive that to my senior prom in high school. There are several stories that stem from that night. Between me and my brother we have also had: Elite, 51 Formula Ford, Elan, 2 other Europa, Esprit HCI Turbo, and Elise. The Elite, Elan, Elise and 51 are still in the family.
