I got a little help from some friends. ones a veggie and ones a club. it was a LOT of food... and by about 4am it was nearly all gone
edit: & yea, a Lotus family is right. after the Europa and 7 came 2 Elans, one a series 1 convertable with the Ford BDA, the other a hot little red S2 Coupe. We were without those for a couple years and recently my dad aquired the 7'th built Series 3 Elan Coupe. its undergoing a complete restoration... The frame needed some repair in a couple key locations and the body had been repainted like 4 times. The body shell is currently stripped to bare fiberglass and is bolted to a rolling wood frame awaiting prep work and paint. the Chassis is awaiting suspension parts. My dad bought Ground Control suspension for it and adjustable spax shocks :thumbsup: we're gonna get started on it this coming spring. Oh and the motor is tired, so for less money than rebuilding the Ford shortblock/Lotus twincam head, he's gonna find a used Zetec and sport 140hp in a 1700lb car. heh heh heh. YES it can be done.
