G'day

Allow me to introduce myself, Andrew from Perth, Australia rather than Scotland. No mechanical skills, redeemed by a long term desire for an Elan. Desire satisfied a year ago.

Now the interesting part:
1972 FHC Elan Sprint, yellow over white, in great condition, a few modest mechanical ailments which are being worked through. A few cosmetic challenges in the interior, not insurmountable. Supposedly the last FHC of 1972 which must make her one of the latter ones produced.

The Elan is used regularly (if Sat or Sun counts as regular) for coffee runs, car days and trips to historic racing events at the local circuit. Not many Sprints in Perth, so she attracts her share of attention.
