Question Elan +2

I often wondered what happened to my Elan +2. I started a frame off restoration while in college in Gainsville FL. The frame was sprayed with black Imron. The front had been converted by the previous owner to have the Europa front. I had found an original +2 front to put back on it. I ended up selling it because as I college student, owning and maintaining 3 or 4 cars did not work to well. If anyone has an old +2 that they know sat in Gainsville FL for part of it's life, I would love to know it got finished and got on with it's life. Oh, and it was originally red.

I think it was a 1971 or 1972. The years I had it would have been around 1986 to 1988. I sold it to a guy named Barry Solywada who was a ship captain for Exon. He had just restored an old Ferrari 330 GT and needed a new project. I left Gainsville in 1988 and did not keep in good touch with the folks I worked for at the time who owned the shop where I worked and kept the car.
