I just picked up a '91 Elan M100 Red/Black with about 144k miles. Took it for a quick drive to test her out and all of a sudden a loud metallic grinding sound out of nowhere and i had to pull her over. It wouldn't shift into gear and i had to have it towed to a shop.

Any idea what it could be? My guess maybe clutch/flywheel/gearbox?

I'll keep you posted what i hear from the shop.Justin

shifter cables.... are they original? if so, the plastic ends broke and won't shift, thus the grinding when trying to shift??
BTW, you should join the M100 specific forum "www.LotusElanCentral.com"
