Elan-BRM times two

PostPost by: mikecauser » Tue Feb 15, 2005 6:47 pm

I've just had the pleasure of examining two Elan-BRMs under restoration
in the same workshop, one a coupe and one a crop-head. And very pretty
they are too. Seeing just one of those drive by will cause a sensation,
but the two together are going to be fantastic. If the owner (who has
been known to lurk here) can't figure out how to drive them both himself
I'd like to be at the head of the line of volunteers.

Hmmm, maybe I'll pop back with a camera, would anyone be interested?

10 minutes walk from home :-) Or five minutes if the path across a
field is dry. I'll take some pics.

Pas de probleme. Peter's workshop is bang on 5m ASL, and they're only
going to flood to 2m ASL. (For the metrically challenged, that means
he'll be nearly 10ft above the water.)
