WOW! This is one of those "if you can you should', and/or "if you can't - make it HAPPEN!" types of cars!
220...221... Whatever it takes.

You've had your Elan 'forever', Michael, I'm surprised to see it up for sale. But if that's where you're going with it, good luck. Would you like me to post it on the LOON's mailing list?

Tim,

That would be great. Yep, its been 25 years now. The plate was supposed to be, of course, KAR 120C but a Mazda had it (at least back in the early 90's). Figured it was a quiet vanity plate that 3 people in the state would understand.

I tried to get KAR 120C, but somebody had it.

Has your Elan Sold? Just checking on the status. I mention it to others when Elans come up in conversation, but I'll stop pushing it if it has sold.

Still here. Just posted here because I want it to go to a good family (Fields to play, squirrels to chase....). Really no rush. I have had it for 25 years and its pretty much where I want it. Might push harder in the spring.

Most people looking for a car in the Fall, just prior to Winter storage season, are looking for a deal. You'll probably have better luck getting a good price for it if you wait for Spring to hit the southern tier, but don't wait for Spring in Minnesota.

Good luck,
