Greetings,
I guess I'm not the only one in this position. Don't life is hard enough? I am the new owner of a 1966 yellow coupe. Why this car? Well, I wanted a car small enough to fit in the garage with the motorcycle, sporty, yet with a small engine, yellow, and a wood dash... I'm somehow picky.
So, an elan seemed to me to be the perfect fit.
Anyway, the car run well and was used on the track, but was not converted to a race car. However, I cant get the car registered because it is missing many basic equipment, like washer fluid, wiper arms, parking brake, etc.
So, that's my task now. Hope it doest take years haha

Hello,
neither, I'm in Montreal. I dont know if there's a club around, since the elan I have is the first one I have ever seen! And I often go to the Granby International exhibit.
