M100 pictures requested for Elan film

Postby JayEmm » Fri 29.07.2016, 15:21

Hi guys,

As mentioned in my introduction, I am currently working on an online documentary about the M100 Elan. I feel like several Lotus models it has been entirely overlooked. Even with the world going classic car crazy it seems this little curio has passed many people by - or they have just misunderstood it. I must confess to being one of the latter myself!

It would be wonderful to have a few pictures to illustrate the documentary, and I know there are hundreds on this site already but I like to do things properly so would ask if people would be kind enough to "donate" their photos for the cause. That is to say, if you put a photo in this thread that implies you are happy for me to use it!

I am quite keen to see photos of Elans in unusual or interesting places, photos old and new and also any of the brilliant factory photos that I know are on the site will be greatly appreciated.

I hope to have the first section of the documentary completed by early September, and I am incredibly grateful to the many enthusiasts both here and elsewhere for your assistance!

That'll be August 11th by my reckoning Dave? I don't see any reason why not!

Here are a few pictures of Smaug The Green Monster. You are welcome to use them, especially if you need photos that don't feature grey lighting and wet streets. Not all M100s live where it's cool and damp! :D
Please pull them from here: https://goo.gl/photos/nnnrb6KuMEVJ5qS16

These were taken New Year's Eve a couple of years ago, here in Del Mar, California.

hello Jay,

you can use this picture if you like. it was taken in May in Skegness. both cars received quite a lot of admiring glances, with some young children asking their fathers "wow, dad, dad, what cars that?" etc.
