When it’s your fiftieth birthday and your 11 year old daughter makes your cake and card :-)

Mine’s a UK car but I went easy on her for making the cake LHD :-)

All the best to you all, your families, and your Elans for 2023!

wow, that is a beautiful one indeed... if she's as skilled and devoted with a spanner pretty soon she'll be on the real one!

long life to all Elan enthusiasts...

Happy birthday Steve! What a sweet (pun half-intended) thing! Sounds like you've got a wonderful daughter; your smile speaks volumes. Keep her close always. <3

Makes me remember my dad's 50th and what fun we had celebrating. He would have been 90 on the 29th; I celebrated with a spirited drive in the hills.

Brilliant. I might have to let my daughter see this as a 'suggestion' haha.

Cracking card and cake Steve. Happy Birthday and well done to your daughter.

I’ve just finished the last of your excellent honey - well before it’s sell by date!

The Yellow Elan is back on the road - you’ll see it at Goodwood. I’m currently ‘fettling’ it after a long, and tough, four day event in the Vosges hills of Eastern France.
