For an Elan to be that low someone either ate an awful lot of donuts or they have massively screwed with the suspension.

Not to mention the obese rubber which has happily chewed through the fiberglass.

I might have a look at it today purely out of curiosity. :D

I don't blame you for having a look. The price seems good.
I think it was the doughnuts that did it.
Best regards, P

Eh? Are you looking at different photos to me? I can see the rear wheel arch has been crudely cut to accommodate the oversize rear wheels but not a lot else. Anyway at around £10300 equivalencies it’s a bit of a bargain. It’d be a few grand to put it back to original - if you’ve the inclination go for it.

Any takers on the bet that it would turn better slalom times without the hideous frog wheels?
