Anyone own: AJW 560M

Anyone know this Plus 2S 130/5?

Sable with a silver metal flake roof, mine from 1975 to 1995, and fitted (when sold) with an Ed Winter cylinder head and Vegantune VJ5 camshafts; I hope the current owner knows this.

Chassis number: 73101700L, registered 16/11/1973 as PRB 787M

This car was the FIRST of the 1974 models and is referred to in numerous Manuals/Books; I hope the current owner know this, too.

A great Plus 2 that NEVER let me down so I hope the car is still providing good service and FUN.

I still have data that I'd be happy to pass on.

It was a superb motor car, Tim: here with our Sprint (and I know where the Sprint is...) in the early 80's:

Found it; the owner has made contact. The good news is that AJW 560M is a runner but not currently in use as it's owner is in Canada; however, when back here in the UK we may be invited to revisit this faithful piece of Lotus machinery

Latest news: my old Plus 2S 130/5 now resides in Berwick, Nova Scotia; it was shipped August 2015, and has since won the Annapolis Valley Exhibition Street Parade... :D
