And just look what the reserve was on this car, 50 - 70k dollars.....................ridiculous !

Prospective Elan buyers, seek advise / help here first BEFORE making a purchase. More so if the car is big bucks.

It was a no reserve sale. The $50k - 70k was the auction house estimate.

Bang on though about coming here first for perspective buyers!

Interesting! I'd hope there some wiggle room. I mean it's nice and two owners is low but there are enough obvious mods for it not to be classed as original. It's also not pristine, dash is starting to crack up. At $40-45K I wouldn't class as out of the question for an ask, but $62.5K seems pretty disconnected from reality...
