Great bibs, yess built upwards, but there i have also a floor, just for spares and bits,

and that one will be getting bigger, (because the elite that i will get next week i will break down for parts)

and i have sold also one car, when that one is gone, i can replace the space with the white excel, (standing now somewhere else)

because there is no space!!!

 

and yes buddsy, in this garage will come many elite cars!! and i hope also a esprit into the furture (a 1983 turbo)

Hi Tocus, I have a friend in the Netherlands looking for parts and a car,he also restores Lotus for a hobby, he was to buy some of mine and an Elite I have but I have not had time to organise it due to change of location for work, can I put him in touch with you.

John.

Now there's a good offer!

 

Well it's great to see good Elites/Eclats/Excels being kept on the road and old ones being used for parts rather than rotting away. Well done bud!

 

I showed my dad your pics and he said he hasn't seen so many classics for some time! He loves the Elite/Eclat/Excel with a passion.

Yess John if you want to do that for me,

i have for sale right now 2 LHD elite cars, so if he wants a elite, i have 2 so he can come over and take a look to the cars,

there are also 3 excels for sale,

 

Great to hear Kimbers, i have right now 2 more elites and a white excel,

they are not standing on the picture, but they are there for sure!

i am right now busy to strip down a red 504 elite, and afther that i will strip down a green elite 502

 

so i have parts plenty!



DanR: great that you are here in the netherlands, if you have time, you can come over no problem,

you dont have to buy something but if you want something there is always a way.. :innocent:

 

or do a swap with your esprit :harhar:

Kimbers.

I'll have to pop round with the gold one to show how different it is to the green one I had, and I'm now working on the silver one hoping to have it mechanically sound in the next couple of months so that's another couple of Excels back on the road.

Cool Andy. You know you are welcome anytime bud.

 

Nearly bought a well sorted Excel myself last week. Was immac and totally reconned top to bottom. But I wanted to pay £4500 and he wouldn't go lower than £8000 which I though far too much for an Excel.
