Elan in Ilkley: Anyone from here?

PostPost by: adigra » Sun May 13, 2012 6:08 pm

Coming out of Ilkley (W. Yorks) today I saw a red DHC with gold bumpers at the side of the road with an AA van behind it (looked like a flat, I hope it wasn't anything more serious). Is it anyone who's a member here? My Elan is Ilkley based.

Did the driver have a hat on?

The driver was standing next to the car with the AA man on the nearside, so I couldn't see what the problem was. I can't recall if there was a hat or not.

If the AA van wasn't already there I would've stopped, and if I wasn't with my wife I would've stopped anyhow, but as it was I would've definitely been more of a nuisance then help. But now I feel a bit bad about it...

Hi Adi

not quite Ilkley, but still fairly local Rawdon. So if you see an Orange/White Sprint at the side of the road please pull over.

Cheers
