That's gotta be gone by now I'm sure. It's not showing up on any of the PA Craigslists.

Someone let Robbie know that the guy has a X1/9. I'm sure Robbie could use another one.

That is perfect for hanging upside down from a garage ceiling.

Woody, I'll be in that area next weekend with an empty trailer, and your place isn't far out of the way for me.  Do you need a Lotus planter?

Actually, the cars in the background are intriguing enough...

Is that a Triumph TR behind the  X1/9 ?

He's also got many but not all of the others listed,

84 rx7

76 MGB

79 MGB

85 500 SEL

78 MGB

73 TR6

87 rx7

Looks like a TR3 and something else between the FC and x1/9

That is a tr3. Nose seems more droopy in the first picture.

I thought Daimler at first but the grill didn't look right

That is a seriously tempting offer. Let me investigate how difficult it is to source a pair of Elan doors.

I'm still trying to figure how an Elan ends up in that condition. The body looks like it took a light tap to the rear but is otherwise surprisingly straight. It's clearly one of the later cars, as it had the big tail lights and the non-spinner but still pin-drive wheels. 
 

I wonder if it was a Sprint or Gold Leaf car that donated it's Big Valve engine and other parts to an earlier race car?

Does anyone know what the gold car is that's next to the TR6?

Looks like you nailed it! Thanks!

I think there might be a leaf blower or something sitting on the rear quarter panel in the original photo.

Not sure on plans. He has another one that could use some of the remaining fiberglass on this one. Probably part out, but he moves too slow to tell.
