Comments: I bought this car at auction about 1972 after the previous owner's insurance company had "totaled" it. It had been flipped, but the roll bar kept things more or less intact. Apparently the insurance guys priced a new front clip and decided it couldn't be rescued. I glued it all back together and went autocrossing. The Elan put me in contention for FTD at most events (said he modestly). Back on the road in summer of 2009 after restoration due to rusted original chassis.
