Lotus Drivers' Club meet at Weedon

LDC's new Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire area group had their initial meet up at the Ordnance Depot at Weedon this afternoon. There was a nice, late Excel there. I thought it was Tony's (Metblue) at first but it didn't have his centre armrest/storage locker mod. There was also a very nice, yellow...

Re: Very nice Elite S2 for sale this weekend

The Elite sold for £15,750.

I didn't get to look at it (too right to spend £10 on a programme to get into the viewing area) but it's good to see an Elite fetching so much.

Cheap Elite. Needs more than tlc

Saw this Elite on EBay this evening. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/116081828995?itmmeta=01HQKNEV546S2774D8HBM5C0K2&hash=item1b07042483:g:30EAAOSw~Dll3OvC It is in a bit of a state as the advert clearly says. Interesting to see that the rear, lower links of the suspension have rusted through. Not seen t...

Re: Elite 504 for sale for £25,000

Saw this advertised on the December issue of Classic and Sports cars magazine.

https://percivalmotorco.co.uk/1979_Lotus_Elite_504/

Looks like some people are recognising the potential of the 504.
