Elan buying advice

PostPost by: elanner » Fri Feb 08, 2019 2:02 pm

Wow, in Newmarket you're a mere 40 odd miles from Hethel - it's sad that being so close to the mother lode doesn't mean that you're close to finding a good Elan! :-)

Anyway, a few years ago, when I decided to get back into Elan ownership, I called Gary Anderson, who lives nearby and knows a thing or two about Elans. His advice was "get a Miata."

Of course I ignored it, but it's not such a bad idea if you just want some fun and a few shows. With Elans, "a certain amount of maintenance" can be, uh, the thin end of the wedge....
