Charmed, I'm sure. As President of the Cheshire Lotus Owners Group (and owner of a less than mint yellow/white Sprint) may I point out that we do not appear to know this chap. Judging by his demeanour it is possible that he is from that part of Cheshire very near to Wales, where "frontier manners" are the norm. :twisted: :roll:

Manners maketh man or not in this case. I guess not everyone shares the same sense of humour. But please do not use abusive language and me as an excuse to leave this site. Jim

Frontier manners Pete, you cheeky sod! We are very tolerant of the English I’ll have you know! :lol: :lol:

I think MintySprinty has had a sense of humour failure. I’m going through it a bit with my car atm but can still laugh about it - occasionally (it will turn into quite a big laugh quite soon enough).

Ah, but you are from that bit of Wales that is England! Those fellow up here are more like Hobbits, but shorter and hairier. :twisted:

What is the size of Wales and why is it used to measure things?

Hi All,
With reference to the above comments regarding this Elan sprint (mintsprint1 - Richard) - We purchased the above vehicle,Richard was very polite and a real gentleman and it was a pleasure doing business with him

It is a full nut & bolt restored genuine Elan Sprint which required minor detailing/finishing touches but will be available on the open market soon and in our opinion will be one of the very very best in existence!
