Back at this - again!

Due to lockdown I have saved a couple of £ and came to the realisation that I just don't have the time or inclination to recommission the elise in any shape or form myself so I am going to have to throw some money at it, especially as Ann wants me to sell it and buy a camper van.

Looking for a couple of recommendations from you chaps.

1. Someone who can come and lift the car onto a flatbed and transport it to the person who is going to fix it, I don't want to pull it onto a beaver tail as I fear something will get broken?
2. Who can take my money and get her back on the road?

Cheers.

1 - https://5starvdl.com/ - Killie based vehicle movers. Used them for mine

2 - Kenny Brown in Hillingdon? Craig in Edinburgh? Not sure if either are really a restoration places though or might want that work? Depends what's required I suppose. There's a classic place in East Kilbride, but then you'd have to have the Elise classic knowledge discussion with them. Have a chat with Andy at AM Mechanical services in Ayr? https://am-mechanicalservices.co.uk/ the website doesn't give off an Elise repair vibe, but Andy's good. Served his time with me at GE, is reasonably priced and has lots of experience with interesting cars.

3 - stick it on collecting cars or similar and see what someone is willing to pay? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-Elise- ... 890.l49286

You need to stop taking Ann's side. The car was my mid-life crisis so she's staying :D

Sell it as a “project” and buy a Transporter camper. All the kool kids are doing it Image

1-0 to Ann, sorry!
