Why did you get rid of the S1 Elises?

I remember seeing a thread by you (I think) offering to swap the S2 for a straight S1 - have you fallen for the S2 yet, or still regretting it?

(ignore this if it was somebody else, seem to remember the name / colour of the car though)

Cheers.
Tried getting in touch with the two guys who bought it but they must have changed numbers.

Hopefully get another one this winter, but having that one from new was pretty special-my only brand new car in my life.

There are a few I wish I hadn't sold...

My '88 GT/E Exclusive coupe- one of the last registered with 60k on the clock..




My '78 MK2 Capri 1.6S with 50k on the clock...



And my baby..'98 Cerbera 4.2, now owned by mart63 on here..




I also wish I still had my very first car which unfortunately I don't have any photos of. A '79 MK2 Escort 1600 Sport, reg: FTW595T.

I love your car history. I'd love to own a Chimaera, a Cobra rep, an E39 M5, a Golf Rallye and a mk1 Golf at some point. The Elises are pretty cool too. smile

I felt the same getting rid of my bike earlier in the year, the one and only vehicle I've had from new, so it was tough letting it go, but no doubt a chance to do the same again will crop up later in life.

I miss my 1990 Pug 205 1.6 GTi. Such fun to drive and in very good condition. Sold just before the values started to go up too.

M3 EVO was mint hard/soft top and one of my favourites.

Subaru STI WRX RA. A proper one, light weight panels, roofscoop, group n gearbox, dccd adjustable diff, a seriously quick car.

Mustang 50gt manual with some tuning plenty of grunt and sounded like a nascar starting up, nearly bought it back but bought a Chim instead.

A few others I have had was a 3.0 mk1 Cortina, a 3.0 mk2 Cortina A 3.0 E Capri and a 260Z Datsun Samuri with a roadtest from Autocar 3 webbers etc 150mph which in the day was quick and mint condition.
