Really nice... always have like shooting brakes, or "Tourings" as the germans refer to them.

Lovely looking car.

I wrote an article on estate versions of the Plus 2 for Club Lotus News magazine a few years ago. It included Roger's car, of course. He and I corresponded and he kindly sent me some photos.

The article is attached below, as well as some of the photos.
