Ex-pat Lotus fan


Recommended Posts

I've been a member of the forum for a few weeks and only just noticed the "Newbies" section so I thought I would introduce myself.

I moved to California 6 years ago and now, after having an Elan and a +2 in the sveventies and eighties, it was time to stop being between Lotuses. I didn't think an Elan was suitable with the roads here as they are in such bad shape they would shake the car apart (if it didn't get flattened by an SUV first). So I wanted a new, post kit car Lotus and a smart but non-running Esprit came up on Ebay at the right price a while back. I've now had the car for 9 months and I've not actually driven it yet! I think (hope) I'm near the end of the saga now and hope to be on the road next month. The only problem with this is that the last time I thought I was nearly done I then sat down and wrote 3 pages of jobs to be done in my note book so there may still be more to do than I think.

I enjoy the forum and have found it a useful source of information checking it for new stuff about once a day. Anytime I can help, I will. Cheers for now.

Greeting Trevor,

As Jussi mentioned, it would be most interesting to see images of your workings.
