So, this year (and possibly this month!) my +2 is 40 years old :)

Recently went around the clock too for at least the first time!
(I suspect second.....)

0's were nice and even, but had moved a little by the time I got a chance to stop.

Son commented that we can now sell the car 'as new' and buy another +2 with the proceeds and still have some money left over :)
He's just 8......

Am treating the wheels to a powder coat (one by one) - see other thread.

3000 miles odd after a full engine rebuild and the smiles are growing :D

We're that I was 40 years old....(though I'm not TOO much past that milestone).

The CAR is 40 years old :)

Will have to get a 2 seater Elan to get the same age as me.....

But...I'm still lucky :)
