Elite/Eclat/Excel picture thread!


Recommended Posts

Thanks to everyone for their kind words. They do encourage me to hang on in there. He's running rich on idle and can foul his plugs in standing traffic, which can get a bit scary. Need to sort that. Also, one of the electric window switches has developed an internal short. Anyone know of someone who can internally refurb the switch? TIA

Thanks to Mark and Gerard for your kind comments. Here’s another one when I wasn’t being quite as brave (i.e. not hanging out of the window as far) with a few iPad effects added.

That’s a great picture, and your car looks superb in that colour and finish. Just lovely.

Morning GrandThriftAuto, Many thanks for your kind words about my car (and for the inspiration!).

Please keep up the good work posting videos of your Elite as they get across in a very humorous and down to earth way, the many joys and occasional (many?!) heartaches of owning a 1970’s Lotus wedge 🙂

Still a superb looking car, if the emira was a slightly updated version of an elite, then I would be more likely to buy one. A new elite with the emira/evora underpinnings would be amazing.

Sure is pretty! It'll be interesting to see what it goes for. 🤔

I have just read through all of this topic since page 6. In 58 years of being alive, I am fairly sure that I have only ever seen one Elite in Australia. I thought about seeing if I could find one after the S4 finally leaves, but I was warned off the car due to the inboard brakes and the load bearing drive shafts.

But then after more thought, once my S4 is gone, that's it. No more for me.

You guys on here have some lovely looking older cars. Envious.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

My Excel has seen some more use this summer. Still needs some tidying up, but good fun to drive. And in good company, I couldn't resist a pic of the line-up with all the different colors. 806307831_2021-08-2320_23_53.thumb.jpg.bce4687aef7a09613f6ef6bc9b6d0d3b.jpg

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.
