    Give someone else a chance to buy the cool stuff, this comment also applies to Uncle & Lightyear.

    Yellow F20 Elise - It's been up for about a week & a half. It was for sale about a year or two ago.
    All the following is supposition, so make of it what you will:
    Sounds like this owner has had his fun & is moving it along. It would've been good to talk to the guy who did the original conversion.
    I thought that the F20's were always a bit delicate with oil supply & the type that they liked. I'd be interested to know what they've done for a transverse installation. There were similar comments when it was up for sale the first time. Usually it's an ITR or CTR K20 installed sideways.
    Good luck!

    How the hell do you remember what you own Chuck? Do you just wander around a big carpark where you remember you parked, find the snortiest car there and point your remote at it? Assume because its the most kill-deathy thing in the place that you own it, have owned it in the past or will own it in the future.

    Better check the body for rust.
    If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

    If anyone can make fibreglass rust, it's Lotus!

    That's not actually parked on the beach, it's on the shoulder of the road.

    Because it is a Formula England -->DFV + Hewland.

    There are around 1/2 a dozen Formula England F1 cars on that website.

    Someone actually threw a serious amount of coin at a 5R. Guess I've seen everything now.
