Just popping by to say hi, I'm likely to be loitering here for the foreseeable future, I've just agreed to buy a very well known Orange Elan M100......

Hi Mark,

Welcome to the main bit of LEC.

There is plenty written on here about the work done on the Orange Elan (it actually has a name of "Missy" - but that may or may not continue under your ownership).

There are a few things which need sorting out, but it is definitely one of the ones worth doing, and has had an awful lot of work/improvements done ove the years by the mad scotsman.
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

go on - click this link - you know you want to!

The plan would be to get it running reliably in the first instance, then treat it as a running restotation

Hi callmelegend, welcome to the forum, I’ve only been here for 4 years and found it invaluable for information so I searched for “missy” , interesting reading about the history and background to the car and owner .
Good luck with the restoration, any photos of when you picked it up :D
