There are lots of user names out there and sometimes I sit and wonder why.
Mine is: 45BVTC
After 41-years of Lotus ownership then for me 45BVTC is easily broken into '45' and 'BVTC'
45: A 1970 Lotus Elan S4 1968/1973 drophead/convertible designated as a Lotus Type 45.
Lotus made 2400 units, maybe; Lotus weren't good at keeping records...
Mine was a 1970/1 Lotus Elan Sprint drophead with the chassis/body plate as shown:
BVTC: this refers to a 1558cc Big Valve Twin Cam; and ALL Lotus Elan Sprint, Lotus Elan Plus 2 S/130, and Lotus Europa Specials, were fitted with this Big Valve Twin Cam engine (a 1558cc Ford 5-bearing bock with a Harry Mundy designed Twin Cam cylinder head, and... Ooops, sorry, sorry...)
So now you, you've Christmas and New Year 2013/14 to elaborate, why not…
Who ARE you?
