Long Time without an elf

Post  RileyUSMan on Wed Jul 30, 2014 1:31 am

I have not posted here in a long time.  I have to share a story with you all.  I have owned many cars in my life, 100+, no joke.  Many cars have come and gone without any thought.  but a few (maybe 3) have stuck in my heart and I have deeply regretted selling them.  One in particular was my green 1968 Riley Elf.  A really solid nice driving car when I had it.  I sold it to a man in NJ and he rather quickly sold it to another man in NJ.  This man invested $20+ thousand dollars into my old Elf and what an amazing job he did.  It has won MANY prestigious awards here in the USA.  I had never done this in my life but I was determined to buy my Elf back.  Well, one and a half years later I have my Elf back.  Just wanted to share this with the Elf community!

Did you buy it back from Mike (Captain 61 on the forum) ? Somehow I never made the connection that it was your car that he was restoring. You're a very lucky guy to have it back after all the work he did on it.

Hi Red Riley,

Yes Sir, that is the one  Very Happy 

Remember when you went and looked at it in person for me before I bought it years ago?

I remember it well. I was just trying to find they pictures I took for you, but they seem to have vanished.
