Almost everyone that sells their Elan wants another within a year or two, easy way to avoid that scenario... don't sell. :) . Good luck with the search bud. :wink: .

Agreed .

Not been any yellows in your price bracket for a while .
Seem to have had a run on BRGs for the last few months.
Last decent red Muley picked up tail end of last year .
Jim Clark S2 on the way . The one with the Yellow spoke wheels .

Not much in yellow for that price. You need to stick another couple of grand into that burning hole :twisted:

And for that you'd get a cracker :burnout:
