Many thanks to all that replied regarding the Noctilux and bodies.

I am in the process of re-aligning my equipment base.  I have a 90/f4 3 =
element Elmar manufactured in 1966 and it appears that it is worth close =
to a Noctilux in the same condition (E+).  I seldom use the Elmar and =
when I found out it was relatively rare (R-5), I have been using it even =
less (well, the head is used on a bellows, but that doesn't really count =

So I am now in the process of trying to effect a trade or sell of the =
Elmar in order to purchase a Noctilux.=20

BTW, I wish this group would stay on topic and not talk about English =
cars.  My wife, who is an angel, would begin to really get upset if I =
started talking about reliving my youth and buying an MG TD mkII or a =
TR2.  I would never rebuy the latter because I remember what it was like =
trying to synch two updraft carbs.  ;-) again.  This group is a =
decidedly bad influence on my finances ;-)
