I picked up my first Elan yesterday, it is a 1970 +2s in old english white. The car was off the road for around 20 years. The previous owner stripped it down and rebuilt it on a Spyder chassis. He sold it to classic Lotus dealers UK Sports Cars when he became too old to finish it. They finished the job and I bought it. Running the engine in now. :-)

Very nice, always liked the +2 in white. It was a white +2 one the A1 that made me fall in love with them.

Would love to paint mine white but will it will go back to the original Blue.
