A rare sighting.

Yesterday morning on Salt Box Road near Jacobs Well. A little blue Elan. Almost missed it due the combination of sun and greasy windscreen. Anybody here ?

It's very close to me and I'm along there quite often, but I've never seen another Elan.

It was just a fleeting view as we were travelling in opposite directions but I am sure it was wearing a bonnet with a bulge.
Astounded how small it looked compared to the other cars on the road.
