Hi,

I need to pick up an Elan but not sure what size trailer I need to rent, I know its only a small wheel base but wondered if anyone knows the exact dimensions?

Thanks

Hey Rob,

Put a shout out on SELOC, I had three offers and borrowed Simon Scuffham's for free (well a few beers).

Hi Rob,

Too busy and just back from the US.

Plus 2's got its MOT and is on the road. Phew !!! Still a few minor things to sort out (leaks mainly ! It's still a real Lotus)
Probably will go to Stoneleigh, it's only up the road. It's on the 13th Nov IIRC

See you soon

Niall
