I was recently sailing, and anchored off Staniel Cay, Bahamas. On a jog around the island, I saw this on the roadside... no comment:

A couple months ago, I was in Maryland looking at some cars on Craigslist and ended up buying this, I guess pretty rare, 69 Riley Elf for $750, hopefully as a $2014 Challenge car, but I'm not sure which way to go with it yet... It has rust, and had been off the road for a while, but somehow actually runs. A lot of receipts came with the car, lots of mechanical work done, but nobody looked after the body...

That Riley is pretty cool; I think I like the grille treatment even better than a Mini. How's the rust underneath? Hope it's salvageable....

I love how the Elf looks like a pedal car next to that SUV... Super cool.

Wow, I love that elf! I've never seen one before...
