Hi Kevin

We've talked in the past year or so, and I've bought all your books to date, so put me down for a copy of the new one!

I've got a pretty good archive of Plus 2 pictures, both of complete cars and detail shots (some of which I used in my Lotus Elan - The Complete Story I wrote for Crowood and some which will go into my latest project, my Elan and Plus 2 Source book which will be out in early/mid 2021),plus I've got my project Plus 2S in an unpainted state and bare (spyder) chassis and my (almost ) working Plus 2 as well......
So if you want any detail shots of mechanical things to fill a gap or some picturesque shots of Plus 2 then drop me a line and I'll see what I've got.

Regards

You can?t write a book on the +2 without mentioning the 100+ Zetec conversions by Spyder not to mention the home brew specials out there........

I have a full pictorial archive of my own +2 and it?s history to date, I still have it?s original engine and gearbox.... surplanted by later Ford equipment
Kindest regards

That?s probably a book in itself.... a cosy little project for your retirement Alan?
