I've got no more storage space and no time for cars these days so obviously last week I bought this.
It was on eBay looking horrid and nobody else bid on it. It has a fresh MOT though, and has had a bunch of mechanical work done recently, and has a galvanised replacement chassis. The seller turned out to be a very amiable chap who has had it a few years, knew the previous two owners, is a proper engineer and is into old military vehicles so cares about the substance not the surface. Ideal.
It wasn't a megabargain but these seem to be on the up nowadays and have been on my want list since they were new and I was six. They come up for sale reasonably regularly but are either stupidly expensive or utter basket cases: this one was nicely Goldilocks.
It runs but I trailered it away because 1. I didn't do that with the last car I bought and regretted it (Gamma, still not running) and 2. I need to justify owning a trailer.
It's an absolute hoot to drive. Lovely snickety gear change, super precise steering, good brakes, fab noise. There are a few issues to sort and it needs a bit of a service/tune, so I'm planning to trailer it to LotusBits for fettling soon.
Interior is really good, apart from the seats needing a bit of a clean:
It's currently in storage at a friend's house (there are clues in the pictures); I have no idea where I'll put it when it comes home but hopefully some solution will turn up by then.
