1970 Lotus Europa
I drive this car twice a month about 30 miles or more on the highway. I've owned this car for 5 full years This is the most fun sports car I've ever owned. Other people say their cars are like go carts -- and I've owned most of those -- and this is the TRUE go cart.
This car came from Baltimore. The first owner enjoyed it for 7 years then sold it to a man who owned it till he gave it to his grandson who then sold it to me.I bought it knowing I needed to replace the master cylinder and passenger window motor. Mechanically it's ran like a charm since. Starts first time every time. Motor is in excellent shape with high oil pressure. I have replaced other things such as brake pads, battery, smaller steering wheel to free up room in the cockpit (original one comes with car), radiator, dash, and new wheels and tires.I also provided a way to play some music hidden behind the dash.The biggest asset of this car is the new and high quality (expensive) paint. It was taken to a fiberglass expert and the cracks that could be found were re - fiber glassed. The car was then block sanded and painted with a gel coat base paint. Then re - blocked and primed. Then re - blocked and painted. New hinges and new mirrors, and new seals around the windows were then put in.I believe this car to be rust free.This is one of the most beautiful europa's you will ever see. Please look close at the pictures.
