Hello and  :Welcome:

My French is poor, only English O level standard I'm afraid and even that was a very long time ago, but thankfully I can interpret photographs very well  ;) 

That looks an amazing car you have, personally I think the earlier Europa has a simpler and purer design about it.  And the photograph of what looks like a collection of Europas, well, I don't think I've seen so many in one place in years...   very impressive.

To post photos on here is easy. When you've composed your message click on the "Attachments and other options" below the text box. You can then select photos from your computer and upload them when you complete the post.

I'll look forward to seeing more about your S1A, remember   :ttiwwp:

 Brian :)

L46, if that is your real name,

Welcome...........a  Lotus 46 is on my bucket list.  There are some pictures of a blue 46 floating around the internet, I believe the car is in Germany.  Now I remember, it is on Youtube under Europa S1.
Here is yet another example of posting a picture.  This is from my library on Photobucket.  It is free and you can add tons o' pictures to it.  Add sections with titles and explanations.  It is quite something once you get the hang of it.

Example of a man that is no stranger to French racing.

Welcome to the forum, L46. Your Europa is gorgeous. I will check out your pictures in more detail when I get the time, but for now, enjoy the forum. Cheers.

NICE! A very fine collection of toys. Are Corvettes uncommon in France?

Hello

Corvettes all type may be 1500 2000 in fance  C3 seems more cummon but sylver anniversary with manual gear like mine very rare
I m lucky
Most difficulty is spare parts approvisional.
Np parts saler here , I must buy by internet from USA it's easy but shipping cost and custom taxes multigly by 2 parts price

For lotus except specific parts like chassis I can find or adapt pa
