1972 Lotus Elan +2

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0
Here’s a restored Elan that I’m finding it hard to believe they didn’t keep it original.  Check out the before pictures here.  And the auction on eBay with a Buy it Now of $30,000.  
I’ve included one picture of before and after below and personally think the new owners blew it.  The original car was simple and clean with its solid color scheme down to the steel wheels.  The new paint and wheel color make it look fussy.
There is an interesting history behind the car that was garaged from 1973 to 2008.  The mother stored her son’s car after he was killed in a skiing accident.  
Before restoration, notice the one color throughout the roof and steel wheels.
After restoration, two tone roof and the wheels painted.
