Hi Alan and welcome

We corresponded via my Sprint web site back in 2011. I do happen to have the contact details of the owner of your old S4. He lives in the north west of England. Let me know if you would like to be put in touch with him.

no,they are beyond my price range now.

my sprint when restored/modified back in 93 cost me around 22k[10 for the motor alone].
thats not including my labour

god knows how much they cost to restore now

i,ll just look at all the nice ones on here,brings back memories of all the old elan problems/fixes

i do miss my old stromberg s4 though
