I saw this in the streets a few days ago. Just south of Sunset Blvd.
A very rare, but sad sight indeed.
An old Lotus Elite. Hadn’t seen one in… well, I’m not even sure I’ve ever seen one in real life.
It was produced from 1974 to 1982. This one has the side markers, so it was (is?) a US model.
Seems like they only made 2535 of these. So this is a rare car.
It’s really too bad to see it in that shape.
Although I do understand something like this must be quite expensive to fix.
But, it’s obviously still running!
This is what it is supposed to look like.
Quite a crazy design for its time. Although, I do remember many really modern (crazy) british designs from the 70’s.
Like the Rover 3500 or the Austin Princess (Anyone remembers that one?) were great designs that, I think, still look modern today.
