This one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-Elan-SE ... 498wt_1170

One owner for 18yrs and he has just brought an S2 , looks like a genuine car that's been used and enjoyed, hence the mileage ,, I wouldn't be too concerned about the mileage if it's been looked after, depending on final price it could be a bargain

Says its been serviced by gst (Gerald) and they know their stuff, could be worth a call to them to ask for a heads up on the car

judging by the seat position in the pic with the door open...the owner may have been vertically challenged.... :-D :-D

Beats me as to why people keep on looking on EBay, Autotrader, PissedonHeads etc... when there are perfectly good cars on LEC that will probably been much better loved and cherished and generally well maintained :? Can anybody explain ?
