A Project In Blue: 1973 Lotus Europa

I’ve wanted to own a Lotus Europa for the better part of the past two decades. Did I hit my head? Maybe, but that’s a story for another time. But I didn’t hit an inexpensive Europa that I could pour my blood, sweat, and tears into while turning it from a junkyard gem to a head-turner. Is that the faint hint of regret I smell in the air…or the curing adhesive holding a rotting fiberglass body to a rusty steel backbone? Steel backbone chassis you say…I wonder why everybody and their brother made custom fiberglass bodies for Fieros but nobody did for the Europa? Oh there was the GS Europa but we don’t talk about that. Find this 1973 Lotus Europa offered for $1 (or best offer…seller isn’t clear) in Medina, OH via dragithome marketplace.
