Great but how do you get the cortina out :o

The other major problem I see is making a decision on which one to drive....... Hmmm the baby Elan every time but I might be biased ;)

The front of the Plus 2 looks good and will save me a few quid on rechroming costs if I go for something similar with mine! Did you carry out any re-profiling on the front / fill the mounting holes in?

Actually, I did put a front bumper on it later. It was tempting to leave it off though.

Gettin' the Cortina out took a bit of argy-bargy back-an-forth, but it stayedout of the weather otherwise.

It WAS the 'little' car whot got th' most exercise... but just knowing I had a choice was heaven to me.

Dr E

How did you add the hpoto to your post, i have never found a way to do that yet on these forums ?

I agree the choice is wonderful. My 4 car garage has only 3 slots taken up with the Esprit, Elan and Plus 2, still waiting for Elises to get cheap enough or me to become rich enough to add a 7 in the final slot.

Still a way to go to get to where another guy in Australia got to with a garage with about 8 Formula 1 Loti in it !

Judging by the pile of leaves, all of them were driven least. C'mon Doc, tidy that yard, you are a disgrace to your profession.

When the photo was taken, I could walk or use a push bike to commute! And it only took a day for the leaves to pile up like that. :P
