Some interesting stuff there Rick - I didn't spend much time in the classic car displays, other than chatting with a couple of people I know there.

We didn't really cover it extensively, nor did we wander over to the infield near Old Hall where there's usually some interesting metal to be found. I was running out of volts in the camera as it was, so I suspect I wouldn't have photographed much more anyway. Nice to see the Vauxhall out and about.

I also spotted the Elan+2 (about 23rd photo down). Can anyone shed any light on the strange and somewhat unfortunate front that it has acquired?

A search online for its registration - 828 DMB - brings up a few references to it. It's either a +2 prototype, or a replica of a +2 prototype, depending on what you read. The rear lights were also different, I didn't take a photo of the other end but I've a feeling that junior did, so I'll check his photos.

Why anyone would want to alter the front of an Elan +2 eludes me (sorry if the owner reads this!).

It reminded me of certain Sebring Sprites, such as;

Also similar to various Williams & Pritchard bodies
