Where is MKX 621H?...S4 Elan FHC.
This was my old Elan I owned back in the 80's, until it was written off in an accident, (no fault of mine, I might add!)
anyone know of it's whereabouts? - I'd love to know how it's getting on.

According to the DVLA website it is neither SORN or currently taxed, that's not to say it doesn't still exist either exported or sitting in someone's lock up since before SORN was compulsory, but it doesn't look good I'm afraid :(

It doesn't show up on the DVLA site so either it's had it or else it's locked away in someone's shed.

Thanks guys, that was quick. Shame, as I would have loved to see it restored.
It was in a sorry state last time I saw it, whole front end disintegrated, head on collision, young driver lost control and came over onto my side of the road and hit me head on. Car did surprisingly well really, I had some whiplash and seatbelt injury, chest hit and bent steering wheel, but I climbed out ok.

When and where was that crash?

In the early 1990's I retrieved some parts from an Elan in a breakers yard at the south end of the M1 (where it joins the North Circulrar Road). It had been a head on collision, and the breakers crane had done further damage.

I think it was an open top not a coupe.

I'm sure he'll be along to correct me but didn't I read somewhere that the OP's location was Watford way - if so that's a bit of a coincidence Bill!

Hi, No my crash was in 1987, in Warrington and the car was stored at Antrobus, on the outskirts of Warrington in Cheshire. It was a yellow fhc.
