Thanks Scott, it's really a rolling project I'm looking for and that sound like a lot of work (and ££s)! I'll maybe take you up on your offer of a look at your other Esprit sometime, and I hope to have my own in the next few weeks. The problem now is that I am being tempted by a rather nice 944 Turbo which is in Aberdeen.. I'll try to resist..
Hello, I'm looking for an S3 as a project / restoration project. The car must be mechanically sound and have no known major faults, or any history of accident damage etc, be HPI clear and have a decent history file / receipts etc. I'm in Aberdeen but am willing to travel. Thanks!
Many thanks for the warm welcome folks! Thanks for sorting out my post Bibs, I didn't realise that I'd posted in someone else's thread.. oops. Al & bingoking, cheers for the invite to the upcoming meet - unfortunately I won't be able to make it on this occasion but look forward to meeting you and other forum members in the near future. The car on ebay looks not bad, I've got it in my watched list at the moment. I've also been in touch of the owner of this one: http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C170799/ It needs a paint job and the interior sorted - anything else I should be checking given the age & mileage? Apparently the engine was rebuilt at 63K but that was back in 1994. I'm not rushing into anything though - I may hang on until my budget has grown and look for a Turbo. We'll see!
Hello all, I'm Steve, from Aberdeen. I don't own a Lotus yet, but am on the lookout for an Esprit as a project. I've always wanted one since seeing the white S1 in The Spy Who Loved Me as a kid! So far I've run Mk1 and Mk2 MR2s, and more recently a Porsche Boxster. I'm now running an IS200 Sport for commuting but hope to find a half decent Esprit to restore in my spare time. Cheers, Steve
