yes,I bought this car in bits,see garage section for photos,spent years doing it up and was finally road legal 2013,first time since 1994/5, managed to get original engine so it's a matching numbers car,took about a year to get clock and hazard switch,mot run out due to health issues/ bad weather,sped do drive in getrag gearbox faulty but have managed to get gear bit (last one available in uk)? , clip that hols it in from Germany this week , will only know if it's right one when trying to fit next year after a get it through mot test,speedometer not working seems to be not included and is overcome by using iPhone app when on road to make sure on speed limits,once this is done car will be for sale April/ may 2015 as I have a lotus elan+2 130s/5 speed project that needs money, this sounds like a plan but it's a lotus one and subject to change/ offers

I agree I think it parked next to excels shows this,I have previously owned 2 s1 elites one in lagoon blue and one in Roman bronze both missed and a love the Monaco white one , the wedge shape seemed to be back in vogue , this also has 3.7 diff option makes a difference on motorways/ duel carriages

Looks great John, well done for persevering with it and getting it back on the road, will be a great car for someone when (if ?) you sell.
