    I moved your post into its own thread.


    Judging by the low mileage and all the dust im guessing this was a barnyard find?!?!

    Very rare find in the USA. ART International made that body kit. It's called the WATARU-01 ("What are you?" Eunos Roadster or Lotus Elite? Get it?) They were the sole distributor for Weber carburetors in Japan during that time and were responsible for a lot of the Eunos Roadsters running around Japan with carburetors during those early days of the Roadster tuning scene. ART have always been into British cars in a big way and their business is mostly based on Lotus cars, which explains the stylistic choice for this body kit that was clearly inspired by the Lotus Elite.

    Real Lotus Elite for reference:

    Sure beats the price (and likely the reliability) of the real-deal! The link above is a $101,000 S1 Elite on Bring a Trailer recently.

    Lotus Bad Rep??

    L O T U S = Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious-- That is unfortunately probably accurate.
    A neighbor of mine had a nice early Elan, it burned up a garage fire.

    The above yellow one is a different car. Not the one in the UK.

    It is interesting guys as with what I think you guys call the 25 year rule it probably means more Japanese imports like this will turn up in the USA and not find there way to UK shores.

    Like the red pitcrew I helped build here in the UK that is now in the USA it probably means more will follow.
