Thanks!
Sort of crazy, there’s a Townie in the UK. Wow, very cool.
To me, about the best/nicest USA built thing ever. And fairly rare.
I am guessing its LHD, and what engine trans etc please? Or pm not to mess up your sale ad of my other favourite car in beautiful fast-red.

I only have three small issues with this...

Shifting the wheel to "my side"

Being able to drive it as it deserves

Paying for it.

I have long touted the Plus 2 as the perfect Elan and this car simply underscores it.

I will check the Lotto (they should called it Looto, but I digress) tonight and if successful :D

Perfect Plus 2 and worth every penny
