Ah of course! Thanks Tim, I remember now. I was trying to find that thread before I posted.

Still interested to know who the Elan owner was in the Yardbirds though.

Cheers

How odd that Dick Emery's car was mentioned a few posts back - here it is for sale - sadly fire damaged but hopefully someone will be interested in putting it back on the road.

At time of posting was stood at ?1800 - the engine alone would fetch more than that:

I think you may be barking up the wrong tree.

The right tree is shown in the photo.

Peter Sellars' white DHC S3. Just found in the sales sheets I have.

45/6814, sold early May of 1967. Now we need the registration number to see if it's still around.

At Peter Warr?s book, My life from the Pitwall he recalls a big shunt whit his own Elan +2
He also tell something about a special Elan +2 with the same 4 pedals and gearbox scheme that the Lotus 76 that was handed to Ronnie in order to get him used to the F1 car.
Does someone have info about these cars?
