I think every M100 owner can attest whatever was done to fix the pre-production car leaking was not effective!

I was actually at Mathewson's 2 weeks ago and didn't see this in their lot then but they do have some interesting cars.

This is tempting me, but the panels all look a different shade of red. Wonder if it has been bumped?

Do I buy another Elan or go for something older and different?

It's Collapso Red... they all fade and some panels more than others. Took mine to the south of France for several weeks and the rear hip panels turned pink but the boot and spoiler didn't so it really showed up. Had they all faded the same it wouldn't have looked so bad..
