The Lotus Elan is something of an icon car and from personal experience they are fantastic to drive and to look at. One of these would definitely be in my dream garage. They’re beautiful, a drivers car and have pop up headlights – and who doesn’t like pop up headlights?? This eBay find is for one that needs a full restoration, and I just love the photos in the listing. The car shows fantastic patina and most of the paint has gone but what is left contrasts so nicely with the rest of the car. Its a big project but hopefully someone will have it back on the road and being enjoyed soon!
