Warren's was the 100th Elan counted by Clemo at Castle Combe. He visited the LEC stand and was on stage for the presentation. He has owned his Elan from new and loves it.

Ah well, today I was dogging on the Fosse Way, which is technically a RUPP. Just the one MAMIL to contend with :D

Not a Lotus but you don't see many of these -ever. Especially not being used as intended. They must at least have better door seals than the M100 !!

I don’t think so. Look how they’re standing up trying to keep their bums off the seats!

(By the way, you need to get your name on the alternator repair kit thread if you’re still interested.)

A Blue M100 on Benfield Rd in Newcastle last night at about 6:50. I couldn't see if it was a SE or an S2 from where I was.

Not me! We’re about 20 miles west of Newcastle in Blanchland. We’ve been blotting up all the rain on Hadrian’s wall using our clothes and boots.
