Shaking my head in utter shock

Hi Ralph,

I like the fact that your Elan sprint is listed as a five seater on carjam, I wonder where they got that info from?

My car is also listed on carjam:

I was surprised to see a photo of my Elan that someone in my neighbourhood must have taken and posted as I was zooming past their house

That happened a long time ago and I'm not quite sure how.
However, it helped me as when they were calculating ACC levies my car was now a people mover of some sort.
Not one of those lethal sports cars........ :)

I once went into my local tire store to price new wheels and tires for my 69 Impala. I asked for 17 inch wheels. They said they would not sell any to me because it's against the law. When I asked what law keeps me from putting on 17 inch wheels, the dealer said it would mess up my anti-lock brakes.
