    Re: Anybody interested in an Italian Spridgit?

    I agree. I've done some research and do know that the trim, glass, straight rust free body panels, etc are essential on this car. I can deal with minor rust, but too much and it's a waste of time....

    Re: Forgive me!

    Okay, here I go again! Going to look at a '65 Innocenti S Spyder on Friday. All I can say is it's half British, so maybe I need to go to a half way house. Staying on the wagon is tuff! It's that A...

    Re: Business Opportunity (Not Spam, Lotus Related

    Interesting. It's not that expensive for what you get, however you wonder where the market is for these. I'm sure it's extremely limited, and there are used Westfield 11's out there.

    Bump, because I had a couple people ask about it. I may not be able to see it tomorrow as first planned because of Jury Duty, but will do my best. The owner is being kind of secretive at this point,...

    Forgive me!

    I'm a lost soul who has floundered in other forums, and now I have found my way back to the fold. I have been working on my Elan to make it as reliable as I can for long road trips this Summer. But...

    Anybody interested in an Italian Spridgit?

    I'm talking Innocenti Spyder. I know of one for sale and will hopefully go to look at it on March 5th. It's a restoration project for sure and I have no idea how bad or good it is but if interested...

    Re: Colors,on the Lotus Badge

    The original badges were hand painted, or so I'm told. My car has a newer badge on it, but while looking through a box of various old British car parts I found the original painted badge from my...

    The more I think about it, I'm keeping the TWINK for now. I've made a decision however to order up the 26R fenders this Winter and to start restoring my hardtops. I may sell one of them or may just...

    Re: Need help with Lotus 7 rebuild

    Derek,

    Glad to see you working on the project. I have a friend who bought an S2 Seven in 1982 maybe even a couple years earlier than that. He has done a conciderable amount of work on it, however...

    Don,

    Maybe you meant Elise, but yes that Toyota engine would also be very nice. My thinking was staying with a Ford engine would be more appropriate.

    Re: Parts???

    Not sure about the quantity but the timing is all wrong for me as well. Price would be $500 plus shipping. I just had mine redone (not perfect) but will do the job for many years.
