Fantastic Plastic
The Elf gets a new garage mate, and this one is guaranteed rust free.

A couple of issues back in this column I was pondering the possibility of another project, and had been drawing inspiration from recent feature cars.

Regular reader, Scott Harrigan, got in touch and asked if we’d managed to track down anything suitable, as his father, Clive, had a project that he might be willing to move on to the right home as they had too many projects on the go. This was no exaggeration – they have already had their Volvo Turbo Z-Cars Mini and a concours Moke featured in these pages, and have plenty more currently in various stages of build.
