Great to see another Elan owner in the South West. Welcome to the forum. There is enough information available here to tie your brain in a knot. You just have to participate and ask. There is no such thing as a stupid question.

Welcome. I also have a 69 S4. Great car, but I am 200 miles from mine now and really miss it.

Welcome to the forum.

I too, am missing my Elans. They are 900 miles away. They survived hurricane Irma well and I'm getting anxious to get back to work on my pre-airflow coupe. And the Super Safety will get its newly acquired American Silverstone wheels and new tires, so I should be able to get some real miles on it this year.
