Elite/Eclat/Excel picture thread!

Recommended Posts

Up here in gods country we have an annual show in Granton on Spey where the village is closed off for the day and the streets filled with classic cars. Great day out with a real family atmosphere. It became so popular that they now have to limit it to 500 cars and these slots are usually booked up well in advance.

You might still have time to sneak in for this year Daniel. If you want to go for next year, pm me and we will add you to our list of entrants. We do this as a block booking and all our Lotus are lined up together in the village. Another one to bare in mind if you can get across is the huge show at Glamis. Over 2000 vehicles on show. This year is our club 10th anniversary and we have a big stand organised with cars from 1968 through to the current day demonstrators, over 40 cars on show in total.

What about this one. Just had first polish in 18 years. Loaded and off to Glamis motor extravaganza for the weekend to join 40 other Lotus, 2000 cars plus in total.

Very sharp. The elite is looking better by the day against today's mass produced jelly mounds.

Truth. Practical Classics recently had one on their Instagram feed next to a Ferrari 308. Those angles are only going to get more attention.

Thank you. No, the VX220 is longer in ownership. The Elan is gone, because of family expansion. Was a cracking car and broke the heart of my wife for letting it go, but 2 two seater make no sense by the moment. Truly underestimated Lotus like the 4seater as well

Simple. 31/2 hour drive on dual carriageway at a constant 70 MPH might just be a bit much for a first time on the road in 16 years.

But she is looking good now and getting better all the time. I will post some videos of our show later, it was bloody fantastic. Now knackered.

It is great to see original pictures of the interior and the engine bay. A really good reference.

funny thing is that on the 5th pix you can see the center console falling apart already 😆

I thought they left the factory like that. It's taken me hours to get those gaps and wonky shut lines just right.

It's the lack of opposable thumbs that does it... Get your owner to do it😁

Interesting to see jubilee clips on the water hoses and not wire clips.
