Good afternoon,

I Have today purchased Elan plus 2 JPS XVV 700L
This was the first JPS car manufactured and supplied new to Ken Myres partnership here in Northampton.
the car was used as there demonstrator it is 1st out of 135 cars in JPS livery
After all these years seams strange that Ken and Neil Myers are going to restore the car back to former glory

if any member has any further information i would be delighted if you could contact me please as there is little further history,
many thanks

happy new year to all members,
kindest regards
