If I lived closer, I would take you up on this.

There used to be a number of Elan owners in my area, but no more. :(

I tried to get my dog to ride in the Elan, but it scared him, a bit too loud :(

You need to get him some Doggles

Gary, are you letting Beauregard use the S2 to chase tennis balls? If so what do you use to launch the tennis ball?

The king of slimbe balls gets his own, he does all the finding and chasing. All I have to do is make the damn ball disapear and the game begins.

Above 45 mph Beauregard pulls his head out of the airstream and tucks in behind the Elan windscreen, Good thing to the the drool already runs down the whole side of the Elan...

Nice Wheels...


But someone seems to have put your steering wheel on the wrong side. :lol: :lol: :lol:


And I suspect you have stretched that picture horizontally :shock: :P

Hi Bill
The wheels are Panasport 13 x 6 with a 34 mm backspace with old 175/50 x 13 Pirrelli P7's

Lotus at Cheshunt is responsable for the steering wheel being on the left side

The 12 inch springs in front and 10 inch in back along with the 20 inch tall tires has lowered the S2 enough that is looks like a stretch limo with a proper driver...

Cats don't make such demands. So long as there's a hammock to lounge around on, that doubles as a convenient scratching pad when lounging is over, Alf's happy.
