Cool! I have a 64 and realize the huge amount of time/work/money you have invested.

Thanks, will do that
Excellent, All you have to do is register which is easy and then you can begin creating your ad, it will be up and viewable instantly. I will then add more time and adjust your account.
Not sure why my website name didnt come up in my previous post and the browser description did instead. hmm. Any issues let me know but it should go smoothly for you.

Thank you!
Tom

Morgan...

Do not sell the Elan!!! I repeat... DO NOT SELL THE ELAN!!

There are two cars I regreted ever selling... My S2 Seven, I'm still trying to convince the buyer to sell it back to me, and my first Elan, which I've been able to replace with 2 Elans!

It is cheaper and easier to build an addition to your garage than to cut off your right arm. :panic:

Cheers,
Kiyoshi

rotfl Sadly there is no building an addition on the garage, I live in a condo and I need the moola to pay for this other car I am looking at, which will hopefully be even more fun ( I have been dreaming of a Caterham like this one since I was in High School)
If it falls through I may reconsider selling the Elan. It was a difficult decision

Thanks

NOOOOOOOOOO!! (For clarification, Morgan has been the only other Elan that we've found in the LA area to drive with us)

First I'll agree with Kiyoshi in saying, don't sell it, you may regret it.

Second, I'll try to help you sell it if that's what you really want.

To anyone looking at buying this car:

I have ridden in it in the Malibu canyons. It is FAST. It feels worlds different from my father's stock Elan. Anyone who drives it will LOVE it.

Now I'm done :D

Wow, I can't believe I'm reading this. Almost the same reaction as I had when I read that Randy was selling his car. Morgan you have a beautiful one of a kind car. Don't Do It!
