Does 81 KPL S3 FHC still exist?

Hi, am new here and curious if my 1969 ?lan FHC still is around ?
I owned her from the late 70's until 1986/7.
She was fitted with the wider Brian Bransom style 26R arches and fitted with +2alloy wheels, Big Valve head, lumenition ignition, modified Europa seats and had early Audi 100 coupe rear lights.
I raced her in 1982 at Thruxton , Silverstone and Brands as car no 76 in the HSCC Post Historic Roadsports in the era when Mike Schryver was winning everything with his ?lan.
It visited the Lotus Open Day at Hethel during the early eighties and started stripping its red paint with a view to repainting it and converting it to a DHC, however I ran out of Roundtoits and I sold it one fateful day with my Escort Twin Cam and Mk1 Lotus Cortina EKR 270C which is still racing today.
It would be briliant to know if the old girl is still around or if anyone has any photos of it during its tenure with me in the eighties?
I would love to buy her back now that I have more time to tinker of course!
Thanks
Stuart

That's the part that you cannot find out. If you knew a friendly police man he may be able to help. You could look at the ?lan register also. Do a www search or someone here may he able to provide a link. At least it's still on the road.
