Hi Guys, what did you think of the article? Just asking as it's my Elan that is featured in it, I thought it read ok and they did a good job.

I've just re-read it!

Greg MacClemman gave a good review of the Elan, I've just been reading a book of reviews (taken from magazine road tests when the Elan was released), and most of them say the same thing - that the car was almost too good and ultimately un-involving. This wasn't mentioned at all in the C&S article, which was nice - credit to your car perhaps?!

Nice car though. I've not seen you about - I'm only 20 miles from Weston!

Thanks glad you enjoyed the article. I'm rather pleased with my elan it needs a few tweaks but otherwise great. Im hoping to go to castle Combe so maybe we'll bump into each other there?
