I noticed a very old car sitting on the lawn in one of your pictures. What kind of car is that?! It looks pretty nice

That is if you meant the little blue one.....


Pam - 8/10/2003 at 09:10 PM

That is the Lotus. If you want details you will have to wait for Dusty to give the specifics.

aahh My Lotus... its a 1972 Lotus Elan Plus 2 S ..I got it back in around '74 and when I lived in South Florida it was my car down there,, I've been hanging on to it for years. I mess with it,,do a little work on it,, but its been off the road for years,,,,,and I cant see doing a full restore on it,, and only using it on Sundays,,,,and going 55 mph
I have been trying to get a few people togeather and fix it up for the Vintage circuit...were I can 'Drive ' it,, it goes to 145 LOL ....heres a link on ebay with the same year and car...fully restored but green http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2427229351&ca tegory=6312

That's really cool. Those cars are rare to see. Really nice car! How many horses? 250?
I have a 5.7 liter 350ci Camaro Z28. Not as sleek, but very fast

speakin' of cars. I like older, vintage cars, I also like american muscle cars.. It's gotta be a GM though

If you know anyone selling a 68-76 Stingray Corvette a or 70-79 Trans am, please let me know!

Take care

I promised my Lotus Elan 2+2 S, that we would move back to Florida when I got old... well Im old ..and my folks are selling our Villa in Naples,, and I'm a bit short of the quarter million needed to buy it,,,, , I'll think I'll get in touch with Gregg, and see if he still wants it,,, I'll make him a offer he can't refuse
