Searching for a Lotus Europa or Lotus Esprit


I first saw a Lotus Europa at a car race at Riverside International Raceway in either 1973 or 1974. It was a maroon Lotus Europa Twin Cam, low and sleek and oh so sexy. I was 16 years old at the time. Somewhere in my photographs I have a print of this Europa, hopefully I can find it. Within a few years I had first admired the Lotus Esprit at the Los Angeles Auto Expo. A photograph exists of this car as well.

I’m now 60, mid life crises age, and decided a Lotus was going to be a part of my life. A few years ago I started searching for either the perfect Lotus Esprit or Lotus Europa restoration project. But what a decision to make, both cars resonate with my youth. I really require both of them before death.
