Only £1449 per month Kathryn. :poke:


I am well aware how much it is Geoff. Unfortunately that's more than I earn a month!
Still, it's a marmite colour so maybe it'll be very slow to sell and I can get saving! :D
I mean very very slow to sell, like still on the forecourt in 20 years time. :lol:

NEWS UPDATE >

I have been speaking with Alan regarding our M100's in attendance .
He is happy to rope of a section for M100's only -

"That's great news about so many M100's coming along to Castle Combe and of course you can have a reserved area. I can give you the grass border alongside the circuit (from the Strawford Centre) which is where I always put any special displays - the +2's were parked there last year if you remember."

I am trying to get us as the lead cars for the opening parade lap ( which seems to be in order with IB10 as the 1st car )
I also mentioned that our car is 30 years old next year and that maybe we could be the featured marque .

"Finally yes - a feature on an M100 is long overdue - why don't we talk about that at Combe?"

So if anyone knows any other Elan M100 owners that are not on here on LEC that would like to be part of the above please tell them to come along and say hi and come and park along side us. We will be in the roped off section . If we can make a big impact this year then it will help us become the featured car for our 30th .

This is a great way to remind others that the M100 club is alive and well . It is also a visual help to make smaller parts manufacturers aware that we are worth making bits for.

All the best for now

Leave me alone, I think I know what I'm doing.
