hey Scott, I have owned my Elan for over 8 years, weekend use! It's a fun simple car to's really GM product built. I also have a Esprit and I'm repairing the nylon bushings that activate the "pop-up" in a week or so and will let you know. Roof it when the sun is out! Are you wanting this car as your main means of transportation? I'm in south Florida and use this car top down...P.S. tha A/C is ice cold Regards Dean
