https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-Elan/1 ... Swc1ZbuIGr . Bonnet vents :-D , car described as 'solid red' must
be one of those rare one off colours, and that must be the one off solid matt black rear spoiler unique to one example, thankfully. And that utterly grubby
interior :roll: .

You have to wonder what type of owner is going to choose that example, and what type of dealer would put it up for sale without trying to get it looking
presentable, at least valet the interior, paint the spoiler and get a set of standard SE wheels on it.

That car should serve as a good example for owners thinking of pimping out their Elan that they just shouldn't do it.

Oh my, that's incredibly ugly. The wheels I could tolerate, although they'd be top of the list of things to put back to stock. The bonnet vents are both pointless and unattractive, and the spoiler definitely now fits both definitions of the word. And yeah, who wouldn't at least drag the Henry vacuum cleaner out into the driveway and give the interior at least a cursory tidying up before putting the photos online?

The Elan is one of those cars which is best when left in its natural state when it comes to appearances. Otherwise it ends up looking like the automotive version of that "Monkey Jesus" painting where the lady thought she could restore it but ended up screwing it up. Leave the "pimping" to the Honda Civic crowd.

:shock: Looking at the colour scheme I think it must actually be based on the Henry vacuum cleaner :shock:

And, for our American cousins who are probably wondering what I'm on about .......

The main difference is... wee Henry is worth more!, the buyer of that thing would share something else with Henry...both suckers :D .

Yes, thanks for the call Clemo. I hate the thought of a potential owner being ripped off.

They are pretty quick at taking the advert down. Didnt get an answer from the mobile number on the ad. Certainly not selling and wont for a very long time.

Replaced Coil packs today which has fixed the stuttering on heavy acceleration. Feels like a new car and looks like one too :-D .
