Comments: I ordered my Lotus Elam in early 1965 through a dealer in New Haven, Ct It was setup so that I would pickup the car at the factory in June of 1965. I arrived at the factory the beginning of June, picked out my car from the factory lot and spent the next 3 weeks touring England in my new Lotus Elan S2. At the end of my stay I returned the car to Lotus to have it shipped back to the USA in New Jersey. It wasn't until early August when it finally arrived. I owned the car until mid 1975. I lived in Pennsylvania then Delaware while completing my college and post college education, before moving back to New England and Massachusetts in Dedham. It was there I sold the car, sadly, to a new owner in Franklin. I saw the car again once briefly when that second owner drove it into my driveway to show me his restoration. I do not remember his name nor do I know if it is still on the road or not.
