Looking to sell my 91 Elan M100

Looking to sell my 91 Elan. The cars drive very well. Recent service, roughly 107k miles, driven every weekend. It was re painted gray and it has faded. My goal was to sort out the mechanicals which I did and give it a re-spray back to the original color..RED. With the exception fof the paint the car is original. PM me if there is any interest. Thanks

I've been considering an M100 as a fun daily driver. Is this a bad idea? I have a pretty small commute, it would see about 6k miles a year.

I daily drove mine for almost 2 years. Loved it, my M100 needed some work though. Had some problems but once I fixed all the hoses and some other maintenance stuff it was a great car!
Its getting repainted soon too. I also put different wheels on mine, didn't have the originals, and I put in an Everest Chip, Piper exhaust and I upgraded the brakes and its almost like an Elise. All I need to do is port the wastegate, paint it and put a new hood on it to make it perfect.

You should definitely consider it. Having it as my daily was great but now since its getting restored, I guess, I want to keep it looking great!

This is my third M100. These cars are bullet proof. It's also very easy to drive....my wife occasionally drives it to work and to the local car shows. It starts right up....just needs a little finishing touch.
