Cool site Tim I enjoyed reading your Elan story.TimMullen said:I've owned my '72 Elan Sprint since '76...
For a while back in the late '70s I owned a Lotus 20 Formula Junior that I was planning to take vintage racing. Getting married and buying a house got in the way of that plan. But my wife refused to let me sell the Elan (to get a down payment for the house), and she was the one that put down the deposit for the Elise (as a birthday present) over two years ago...
'72 Elan Sprint - Colorado Orange over Cirrus White (that's it on the left)
'05 Elise ordered - Chrome Orange
Wait a second - I thought the chicks were thinking I was sexy - it can't be the car, can it????Modern Wedgie said:Meat,
Your car looks sexy even under the cover. Damn, I want an exige!
Ditto here, I thought of them along the same lines as Ferrari etc, i.e. very nice and very out of acceptable price range.XconZ said:I really like the Esprit, but never pictured myself owning one, so I voted "I never wanted a Lotus until the Elise."
You are too young to have seen the Lotus in the James Bond movies. That car was the first car I ever wanted as a young kid.XconZ said:I really like the Esprit, but never pictured myself owning one, so I voted "I never wanted a Lotus until the Elise."
