I guess I'm the only one to think this:

Why??
Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?

Steve is building, perhaps crafting is a better word? the ultimate road legal Elan in terms of outright speed and power.

Have a look at the 22 pages of topic here lotus-elan-f19/cosworth-turbo-into-elan-t971.html

We all love our Elans and their heritage made possible by people who didn't conform to the normal accepted way of building sports cars.

It's the best topic on Elan.net since Gary Anderson's "Sows ear" epic!
Kindest regards
