Can anyone help me here? In or around the Necastle area, is there a good garage?

Cheers,
Thor

Hi Thor,
do you mean Newcastle Upon Tyne?
There is a guy called Malcolm ? he used to be a foreman mechanic at the Lotus dealer that sold Elans. He works from a Garage in back of Goldspink Lane but he may only work part time now.
I live near Newcastle and have had my Elan Sprint for lots of years ,If I can help give me a shout. If this info is what you need let me know and I may be able to find his tel number and exact address.

That sounds good. The reason I'm asking, is that I'll be buying a +2S/130 in the south, and then taking it on the ferry from Newcastle to Norway. My plan was to have it transported up there first, have it serviced to sort out any niggles. Then only drive 30minutes to the ferry, instead o 6hours in a car I dont know.......

Cheers,
Thor

Thor
my wife works near the garage so I will ask her to pop around and find out opening time and a tel number.
I can meet you on a weekend and help you to find the garage if it helps.
