Elan Buyers Guide in March 2005 Classic Cars Magazine

Sorry if this was already mentioned, but I just picked up the March
2005 Classic Cars magazine and there is a Lotus Elan buyers guide on
page 98. Nothing major - 4 pages of info.

Interesting reading. The one thing I chuckled at was their Elan
values. They state that a low mileage, fully restored Elan is worth
15,000 to 25,000 Pounds. Sounds great to me, but I don't remember
seeing any sell for that 25,000 GBP recently (or ever for that
matter).

I read the article as well. Good for someone not familiar with
Elans, I suppose. I think if the numbers were US dollares, it might
make sense. I know of two that recently sold for mid 20s. US
dollars, that is.
