1992 Lotus Excel SE Celebration 2.2 twin cam from UK and Ireland
Best car I have ever owned, by far
Burst one radiator hose.
Dip light relay sticky.
This car is fantastic, it drives like it's on rails (really it does).
Very comfortable for the driver and passenger.
Enough room in the back for kids, and adults on a short run.
Great on a long motorway run, even better on "B" roads.
I find myself taking the longer route now, so I can drive it more.
Buy the best example you can afford; cheaper models are false economy, you'll end up spending twice as much getting it up to scratch.
A replacement clutch is an engine out job. £1200!! So you need to be a good mechanic or have deep pockets.
It's not a cliche, you smile when you drive it. The looks are retro but slick.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
