:lol: :lol: I think he is just using Ebay to find info on his car but does not know where to start looking.

I have pointed him here to start with then he needs DVLA form V888 and an email to Lotus Archive.

I used to be nuts. Apparently I am "as sane as I am ever going to be" according to the pros. :lol: :lol:

OK Bud, I've got to admit it, this one takes the biscuit :shock:
No information as to the condition of the wiper blade apart from the fact that it could have been used by George Best!!!
The final insult is the ?12 postage - that's it, I'm off to the pub,I've had enough :lol:

This +2 was first registered on 1st Sept 67 in ... Manchester! So it is indeed a very early +2

We know Best had an Europa S1. Anyone have knowledge/photographic proof of him having had a +2? I can't find any on a quick Google Images search.
