Yes, it's always nice to unexpectedly come across one of John's posts.

It looks like the front bumper has been butchered around a bit, perhaps for a camera mounting.

I have a copy of the film Hello Goodbye (VHS to DVD) Quality is pretty good. When I get a moment I will try and post the lotus elan clip. I first saw this film late one night 1980'ish. The only part of the film I saw at the time was the lotus elan bit. It was a case of "oh my god" a lotus elan :shock:
