                              I gave serious thought to buying a crashed/repairable LHD twin cam Europa last year for a project. Then I went and bought another Elise instead. You can still buy just about everything for these either new or repro. For more and reliable fasts, stick an MX-5 motor in it.
                              If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

                              Police warn that blow-up dolls are not recognised floatation devices.
