Fulfillment. By experience sold my Elan. Then I tried in acquiring other Lotuses,Corvettes, Morgan all of which are unique. But fulfillment. None could match the Elan in my case. I used it at Limerock racetrack events and 0f course the Jersey shore.
Saw the video by Chris Harris. Amazing what picture conveys. Its the deep appeal to the senses from the engine revs, screaming exhaust and more subtly the vibration ,resonance evoked , that is so unique . Each has its own imprint and when you discover this essence, this soul, you keep the creation...why because it is you. who you are, in a way your alter ego,...you have found your soul.
when you do, cherish the moment and renew the experience with each excursion
