Hi,
Just joined as I feel this is the best place to get help, share stories, BS etc about our common addiction, otherwise know as Lotus!
I have a couple of older Elans, a 64 and a 68 SS(project), a Caterham 7, Westfield XI (being built), so I'm quite familiar with the older cars but really feel like a newer Elise as something not too expensive that I can have some fun with, both on the road and track.
I'm looking for a damaged repairable (salvaged?) car 05-08 maybe?

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Ian

Welcome Ian! Where in SoCal are you located? There are lots of Lotus owners here on the forum from both LA and OC. I'm in OC myself. A small group of us OC guys make it out to Cars and Coffee a couple times a month. You should consider bringing one of your cars sometime.

Best wishes in the car search. Biggest thing to look out for on a salvaged Elise is frame damage. Due your du-diligence in research & test driving before deciding.

Hi,
I'm in San Clemente. I've certainly done the C&C thing many times but the last few I found it had changed. To many Lamborghini's and Ferraris, and Mustangs with a Carbon Fiber Hood! Not like it used to be in the early days . . beside that is damm early on a Saturday morning ;-) !
