Lotus Elan

I got an email from Jo Mullen

Hello all,

I have a bit of a problem. This morning I awoke to an email from Jo Mullen, Tim's widow,. she told me of someone coming to her house to look at the cars and mentioned he was working a deal with Tony. It surprised her as she and I have a good relationship, and she thought she would had heard from me before someone contacted her if I was involved somehow.

I am not working with anyone. If I was I would of course contacted Jo.

I have only posted to the this list that Tim's cars were available, and then later when someone posted that they wanted a S2 Elan, I posted out that I would be interested in a straight trade if someone want to swap my S2 for Tim's Sprint, I might be interested. THAT IS THE EXTENT OF MY INVOLVEMENT IN ANY THING IN REGARD TO TIM'S ELAN OR ELISE!

This reminds me something my dad told when I stopped to help a young lady being beat up by her boyfriend. After they let me out of the police car, he said, "Son, No good deed goes unpunished"

Tony V

Note: this was edited at the suggestion and request of Jo to more reflect what happened.

We don't know each other though may have exchanged the odd PM. I can only speak of you from your postings on here and you come over as a thoroughly decent guy. Hopefully the LOONYs will be along shortly.

Being accused of something which is difficult to disprove is never nice. All I can say is keep all the correspondence emails and adverts etc and the day the accusations come out in public you can 'publish and be damned'. From personal experience I can tell you it's a great feeling when you know the accuser is shown up for what they are.

Good luck fella.
