Thanks Steve, it was at the NEC show and it is a REAL one, unlike the other one and all the "GT40s" which were there! :D

1982 I had moved to the land of Milk and Honey (well the colder part just north) and had saved enough to buy this.

Two Elans plus some lesser cars...

Edit: not sure if should have posted this here- having read "the rules"; unfortunately I have never owned any of the cars in the photo. :(

Very nice. I daily drive a e39 540i, the thought of running one of those in the UK scares my wallet. At $3 a gallon is not too bad but UK prices....
'73 +2 130/5 RHD, now on the road and very slowly rolling though a "restoration"

Currently at about $6.5 to the US Gallon in UK.

And that is the best it has been on years!
