The Elf was sold on ebay last year spoon, it went for circa £650 and soon after was cut up for wall art and spares if it all sold the purchaser doubled his money, not bad for destroying possibly the oldest production Elf left, still if it was at number 63 it makes my number 67 car closer to the oldest production car.

It's like what my painter friend Donald said to me
