Pacific blue Elan (SOLD)

Changed my mind,it's got to go or go into storage.
Just gone up in Autotrader for £7650.
My IT skills are not up to putting pics up on the forum and my IT consultant ( grandson ) has gone off to Uni so you will have to look at AT for pics.
Not much I can add to the AT advert,I have had the car for 2&1/2 years and loved it ,it's a real old school ragtop with fabulous handling/ performance and iffy brakes ( brakes are original ,no mods) but it's time to move on and the boss has told me not to buy any more cars until I get rid of one.
The price is more guesswork than slide rule.
The cheapies seem to go for 5-6K and the expensive ones for 9-10K so I have pitched it in the middle.
If anyone has any questions give me a call or post them up here.

Hey Jeffrey whats with the covering of the plate ?
Each to their own of course but i always find this as iffy . The first thing anyone does these days is checks the MOT history and by covering up the plate it always strikes me that you are hiding something , Which you are .... The finest selling details , this history of the car.

Best of luck with it though .

OK, with hindsight I would not have hidden the reg as I'm happy to give it to anyone who wants it.
I had these photo's and couldn't be bothered to do a new lot this afternoon when I decided to advertise it .
Yes, it does have a good MOT history.
Having said that my Porsche 944 had a clean MOT when I bought it a couple of years ago and it was a disaster underneath.
I got it cheap and had already spotted the bodgeup repairs underneath so no surprises but it does show that the MOT is not always a reliable guide.
