New Owner of '91 Elan

Postby jadamcyk » Wed 12.01.2022, 00:15

Hey everybody,

I'm about to take possession of a '91 Lotus Elan I recently purchased from an auction. I just wanted to say Hi and looking forward to participating in the community. I'm pretty active on a Mercedes forum for my other car (560SEC) so can't wait to learn more about this unique car.

I'm mainly planning to use the Elan as a daily driver and weekend cruiser. I'm a Los Angeles resident so i can't wait to take this out on the PCH and twisties.

Anyways check out the attached photos and take care.

Justin

The car looks sharp!

I just bought a green one from a guy in Manhattan Beach. I live in Long Beach and look forward to meeting other Elan owners in SoCal. There are Elans in LA, SGV, Newport Beach, Riverside, and San Diego.
