Would probably be a good idea to get my worn out parking brake pads relined. :shock:

A 'Juan' owner from new S2, in Bogota where it's been since 1973. The car is in the final leg of a comprehensive rebuild. Juan says that there are three other Elan's in Colombia, all US imports.

Great chap and a great car :D
