Classic Motoring - November 2014

Postby maz_r » Fri 03.10.2014, 21:24

Has an article on the Elan at 25.

Not too bad and mostly accurate (in my opinion only) and ends with the following conclusion:

"Buy now while they are keenly priced. You won't regret it"

Sadly, we don't get a mention but apparently "At the recent Brands Hatch Lotus Festival, we spoke to a couple of owners..."; you know who you are...

I agree with that. Whether they will appreciate significantly (which is the implication) I find difficult to judge. After all they don't rust away like other cars. Still, I didn't buy mine buy mine to make money, but to make me smile.

I'll have to pop down to the newsagent in the morning.

Bought myself a copy of this today and to my surprise, there is a picture of my car in the elan article! Mine must be a prime example of an S2 :-D

Overall it is a good read, there are a few comments I'm not sure I agree with though. for one I thought removing the cat from an S2 would lead to a MOT failure.
