Anyone know this car?

Postby nattie » Sun 27.01.2008, 23:17

Hi all

Purchased my Elan last September and she's almost ready to go. :)

Just wondering if anyone knows any more about the history of this car (1991, Steel Blue, Reg No H161CCD but she's had a couple of private plates)

Any info would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Nattie

I don't know anything about the car, but welcome anyway.
You've just stumbled across us in time - the big annual meet is only a couple of months away. Hope you'll be all sorted for then and will be able to at least join us all for the big Saturday convoy and meet.
Bring along a list of questions! :D
Striking fear into the hearts of duplicate posts everywhere...! :P

Nattie,

If you PM Sy V.... he may be able to help...

Also he's collating a big data base..

Donington is a must. I bought my Elan 2 weeks too late for this last year. I am not going to miss it this time though.

Your Elan doesn't feature in my DB; but if you send me a PM with as much about her as you can and her private plates especially, I may have her listed elsewhere.

Jack,

With 1100 posts I thought you'd been here from the start - I wonder if you hold the record!

Yes Ray, the term (in less friendly forums) is Post Whore. :wink:

I post lots in the tec forums cuz I am quite mechanically minded and, as an East Midlander, I have learned how to hijack threads :-D

It would take a lot to beat Geoff's rate of posting. :-D

So what is it on LEC, East Midlander? Thread Hijacker? :lol:

You would think EE is a steam engine if you saw it warm idling. :( Nearly ready to get this sorted though.
