for those in the uk.....that motoring programme '5th GEAR'.....I was very supprised last night to see and even better still hear spoken about our beloved elan......it was only a quick one though as it was part of a piece on how nuts the japanese are about thieir cars etc and they showed and made reference to the elan and showed classics being restored and maintained in a huge car 'heaven' I suppose
just incase you see the repeat IIRC it was at about 40mins in.....
you'll need to be quick though!!!
cheers

They film 5th Gear in the building where I work, I was pondering the other day what my reaction would be if Tiff Needell asked to road test my car! :?

He might even want to buy it :lol: I read an interview with him a while back and he was saying he was looking for an Elan to do Sunday drives with (although I think he said a Sprint)

Pehaps mine would sway him to a Plus 2.... then again maybe not :lol:

Seeing what he does with the cars he tests I reckon I should run a mile if he asked fo a go :shock:
