Hi Daniel and Tim

I built and used as a daily driver prb#9, sold late 90's (starting to think of getting another clubman now but probably something older)
Bought my S2 élan 3 plus years ago and love it, bit more room, bit more practical (I never had a hood for the prb but drove daily including lotus91 in Canberra with a 3 hour very wet drive) but just as much fun.
My prb evolved into more of a race car than a road car which was one of the reasons I sold it.
Certainly recommend an élan, you just need to work out which model you want and then find one.
Happy to show you mine or discuss, drop me a line

Hi Gordon,
Not sure you remember, but we spoke some years ago as I bought your brothers PRB! I am still compiling a register for PRB's.
I would like to catch up with you. I'm sure you can tell me a lot about Elans and PRB's!

I drive No.8 to work a little, but I am not as hardy as you from the sounds of it!

Regards Daniel

Daniel
A great pic, Wakefield park circa 1991, pleased to see I was ahead of my brother. An early pic with full guards still. Later modified with slots to reduce lift before going wide track and cycle guards and big motor (alas should have lap left standard as was far more fun)
Give me a call 0438467366 car is usually in balmain or artarmon or somewhere in between.
Anyone know of a older 7/clubman for sale?
Gordon

NB - happy new year!

Hi Dan

Sorry I was a bit slow off the mark in finding your thread here!

If I can help convince you to get an Elan, let me know when you want to come round to take it for a spin - you won't regret it :) I'll bring it along to the February GM at SSC, and you can slobber a bit :)

Thanks Ashton,
I would like to check out your new car. A drive may take me over the edge!
