I just recently met a gentleman that owned a number of Elans in the 60's and early 70's, he wondered if any of these cars are still about -

The +2 is still registered, the white FHC and blue Sprint are not; however, they may have been given different registrations at some point.

FPE 5J is a S4/Sprint, alive and well in New Zealand and owned by a lister on here. It was first registered on 2.4.71 and has the rare, early forward facing script on the cam cover.

EYO 4J is still listed by the DVLA and on the road. It looks like a S4 with a Sprint sidewinder retro fitted, to me.

LGC59D, the white S2, is not registered either.

Hi

I realise that this is post is quite (very) old, but I just stumbled across it to see a picture of my car - +2 XPC 10G. I bought it in 1983 from a friend of my father - Godfrey Thompson. I have had the car ever since and it's in regular use . I don't think Godfrey is with us anymore, but if you have any more information I'd be interested to know .
