"Would have to be picked up in Grass Valley CA". I think I've seen this car in person about a decade back - the person selling it back then had an X1/9 race car that I was interested in.

Not sure if it's the same seller.

Just curious if there is any idea who ran this car back in the 80s. I crewed for several guys back then. 

FWIW, the FB ad says it is in Phx.

The ad places it in Phoenix, but at least the parts are in Grass Valley CA according to the ad.

Think of all the editorial. It's possibly worse than an Elan in a yard trailer, because there are companies that sell parts for Elans.

I had an Alliance for a rental car once, back in the day.  Granted it was a rental and probably beat on, but it was the worst rental car I ever had.  Hard to start, uncomfortable, various things worked intermittently, and the final straw was when I pushed the Off button on the radio and the button sprung out of the dash and flew into the back seat.  smiley

I worked for a rental car outfit in the mid 80's. We rented these and Encores. They were complete garbage straight from the dealer. No need for renters beating on them
