beautiful! you're a man with taste! I too have a pair, but not the same colors like your twins.
my M100 is mustard yellow and my Sprint is Lagoon Blue over white.
I love showing people the cars, telling them they are both Elans. One a '73, the other 18 years later.

Good eyes.

Almost the same thing - It?s unable to cope with my electronic ignition.

But after 25 years, my ears tell me when to shift.

I should get it modified.

Since we are looking for nit picks are the wipers on the early Elan on the correct side? I though (there's part of the problem) that wipers on LHD were set to the right and on RHD they were set to the left.

My RHD S3 and S4 are parked on the right, which I think gives a better sweep for the driver?

Fabulous pair of red Elans.

Fabulous pair of white Elans. Is the engine out of the S4?

In the home straight with the Elite.

My LHD Elan is set up the same way as modern LHD cars, with the wipers parking on the right. After a quick search on Google images though, I'm finding a pattern: seems like the baby Elans, regardless of RHD or LHD, park the wipers on the right while the +2s park them on the left for RHD and right for LHD.

That's a lot of rights and lefts.

Ok, here?s an updated picture. I haven?t really ever had a top in/on the car so wipers are a bit redundant. This is SoCal where it rarely rains. So I put the wipers in the trunk with the front number plate, tow rope, battery charger and wheel nut wrench. I don?t think I saw a jack though. Hmmm.

(Got a new top at Donington when I painted the car but it?s still in the box where it?s been 25 yrs )
