r.d. enterprises, ltd.

Begun by Ray Psulkowski in 1974 as a part-time business, and full time by 1976. Early days at the original Elkins Park, PA location I sold Lotus parts and performed repairs on some local Lotus cars, but stopped repairs and just sold parts by 1984. Moved to Gardenville,PA in 1986 - the first really rural location for the business and the beginning of "parts in a barn". And in 1990 moved to another barn in Quakertown, PA where I've been ever since.

The Elan was probably still "street-legal" at this time.

Note the low-profile windscreen and front spoiler. Definitely not street legal now.
