After digging this Elan +2 out of a snowbank to send to its new owner in Florida[!], we couldn't open the doors. Cory had a brainstorm and insinuated himself into the car through the trunk.
Oh, to be young and limber again !!
This reminds of '91 when my Dad had me crawl in the trunk of an Austin America Princess to hunt down a water leak. I was scrunched in there so tight with the door closed and had to squirm just to move the flashlight. That's when I learned I wasn't claustrophobic and could drive a Lotus!
