15 year wait for an Elf!

Post  DaleT on Thu Jun 05, 2014 12:37 am

Hi all,

My name's Dale, and I live in Buckinghamshire.

Having grown up around Classic cars, and wanting an Elf since I was 15 when I saw one at the NEC classic car show, I've always kept an eye out for them at shows and on the internet, whilst collecting bits and pieces linked to them. Some 15 years later, and with my own garage at last, I'm now past collecting the memorabilia and want one for real, so I'm on the hunt for one this summer.

I'm not blessed with mechanical ability, so I'm looking to find one that's 75% of the way to being complete, that I can finish off with a little help, and start taking it along to the events I love attending throughout the year.

I look forward to interacting you many of you on this website, and getting my first Elf in the next few months!

Cheers,
Dale

Hi all,

I finally have my own Elf. A 1965 MkII.

It had a full resto in the 90's, and is a lovely little car.

I look forward to seeing some of you at shows in 2015!

Clearly 1965 was a very good year for Elfs !
Yours is a superb example.
