1st guy contacted me, and after loads of chit chat via email only, (never looked at the Elan) asking loads of info inc how bad are the brakes and have I any proof of the the Paul Mattey work..

My reply was sorry but "as advertised no history!" and brakes need bleeding, or at worse, new seals in master.. His reply was " no paper work was a very big issue to him" and it needed to much work!

2nd chap after lots of chatting again only via email.. ended up saying he was advised that the Elan wasn't worth much as it didn't have a Lotus Chassis (Currently fitted with a Spyder) and the interior wasn't Std and was too much work!

What's up with these guys?


These are not car guys! More like investors......

Hi All

Car guy here - bought this car today and look forward to making some new friends on this board :-)

Enrico, thanks again for a good and painless deal - we will keep in touch as discussed!

I'll upload some pics of the day shortly - suffice to say having bled the brakes and picked up a battery (oh and booked an MoT!) I drove her the last 15 miles home :-)

All the best

Matt
