The Empire strikes back

Postby dapinky » Tue 29.09.2015, 19:42

Having had a few requests from people on here to see the finished article, I took a few pictures of the car during our trip to Exmoor.

It isn't clean and shiney (because i drove it!) and is a tad dusty, but looks okay I suppose.

With due respect, the photos do not do it justice. It needs to be seen in the flesh to truly appreciate the colour.

Kind words, Geoff :oops:

(but it does look good in the flesh - especially when it's properly clean..... but as I like driving it, by the time I actually get to somewhere worth taking pictures it tends to be less than pristine - bloody sunny, dry English weather - far too much dust about!)

Dave, that's lovely. Well done. However, I feel I've missed something.

Please forgive me, but I thought you used to have a blue one and a red one, and one of them got written off by being swiped outside your house. I know I should know, but where did the black one come from?

PS: the weather has been unbelievably good in Aberdeen also - first time this year we have had a big high pressure area hang about for a while. Great Elan weather.

C'mon John. Keep up at the back. I know you've retired but I never had you down for early senile dementia :lol:

It's Empire Green, hence the title :lol: :lol:

Looks great.
I don't think I've ever seen an Empire Green Elan for real. I am sure I will get to see this one before long though :D
