A car is reborn

Hi all. Just watched the episode from a car is reborn in which Ian Forrest takes a yellow elan round the Knockhill circuit - brilliant! He had the owner of the car with him - Kenny Allen. I saw this years ago when it first came out but it's good to see it again. Ian's obviously enjoying it and gave it top marks.

Have a look again at the footage - Is it blue smoke from the exhaust or blue smoke from tyre against wheelwell?

Is there a torrent for this episode somewhere?

My one problem is that distance keeps me from my Elan. (36/5395)
