As the cooler weather approaches I have decided I will go get this car, I will not be keeping it as I have too many other projects right now, I promise pictures of the extraction and a fair price for the car.

I know of a '66 S2 Elan near Watkins Glen. Its very rough. Been stashed in a friends barn for years amongst his forever growing collections of vehicles. He knows I want it but being a hoarder he has a very hard time parting with anything. I've been trying to get it for a couple of years, eventually I should get it but it will take counseling and/or bribery to convince him......

OP here, sorry to leave you all hanging here. It has been a crazy year for me, wife has had serious illness,house has demanded a lot of time and money from me. So it is getting cooler here now so as the overgrowth dies off I will be going after this car, I promise pics of it in its natural state as found and pics of extraction, ,it will be for sale as I have way too many cars already.

Sitting in a field the frame is likely shot. Grass and soft ground trap moisture like nobody's business.

In for pictures though.
