  1. Hi Mike, what did I miss? Yes my 300 was No 64 and went to Southern Ireland - all live and well with a real Lotus enthusiast. It was registered in 1996 so not the car in the pic. TC
  2. Yes, this is the exact Lotus - with the 2 piece sunroof (the purchaser actually lost one half on his way over to the place that had maintained the car for me). Thanks for this, I only have one pic and that is similar to the last one. You advertised the car on Paul Matty's board - thats where I called you (just sold my 2nd Europa at the time) Looks stunning......
  3. In the following order.......... over 32 years Lotus Europa S1 Lotus Europa Big Valve Lotus Esprit S2 JPS No 75 Lotus S3 Turbo Lotus Esprit SE (Red) Lotus Esprit SE (Black) Lotus Esprit Development mule and press car (cross between GTS, V8 and Sport 300 Lotus Exige S1 Lotus Sport 300 No 64 Lotus Esprit S3Turbo Lotus Aston Martin Vantage S All Lotuses except the Aston..... I lied about.........
  4. The hull is a semi wave piercing design ....duh 3106 miles on one fuel load and in under 52 hours (just a bog and a maxi pack of Walkers between 8 crew) ...............had worse stays in TravelLodge
  5. About to embark on a new Challenge .................. Got any more Stickers??
  6. Been a sailor since I could remember - had a sponsor on here somewhere, think he was called Bibs
  7. Thanks Mike - have enquired about one for sale - no reply yet but this one pictured below would be the ideal solution. Had an orange ti (my third car) in 1985 (XTC 90V) Would n't pull the skin off a rice pudding, was always at the petrol station but it sounded great. Can t imagine how different they drive without the power steering and the benefit of manual windows(?)
  8. Been a while Mike....... - yes, have already been in touch with the Owners Club for membership. Will come over to Castle Coombe at the end of May - I am after a standard car, also considered one of the remaining ti's
  9. Searched for a while ....looking for a standard and original Lotus Sunbeam (Avon if there is one out there)
  10. Also booked in - good news - not taking a Lotus unfortunately ........will see you there Ian Oh, in this....
  11. Still undecided ........ taking your advice and will attend one of the TLF days. Still room for a nice JPS as well.......
  12. That is the one Bibs, I guess after I sold it the thing was badly damaged. Without the wheels, body, plaque etc. and a Cat C against it then its no longer a JPS Did some research and found this description and history - completely inaccurate.......... Early Lotus Esprit S2. Genuine JPS Engine For Sale (1980) This is my fathers early Lotus Esprit S2. It is incredible to look at and even more incredible to drive. Finished in the iconic black and gold colour scheme. She is factory fitted with the super rare John Player 2.0 Normally Aspirated Engine (Engine number; CC907790316079). Un
  13. As a long time owner of at least 10 Lotus over many years (I'm old), one of the cars of particular interest and history was a JPS Edition. For many years I wondered where the car ended up. In short I bought it registered a 'W' registration - so perhaps the last registered, owned twice by the original owner, and as I sold it in around 1987 completely standard - me being the 4th owner (or 3rd as it had been owned twice). Bear with me ........ I know Will and Kate are distracting your concentration on the important issues here..... but the buyer was ......well his parents were less than happ
  15. 2012 GSXR 750 since March and mini Loteuk has just been initiated on his Peugeot 50cc Vivacity - lady drove into the back of him at a roundabout! Ian...5 years? We need a trip to Bridge!
  16. Plus the 80 quid to assign the plate to a vehicle - paid in advance when the plate is put on retention...........?
  17. Its true...! Checked an official source - No matter how many owners a vehicle has had, if it is first registered in the uk then as above registered in NI, it magically loses all its owners when re registered in the uk.
  18. If a vehicle was bought and registered in the Uk and then subsequently sold and registered in N.Ireland, and then re registered at DVLA back into the uk, would the number of owners on the registration document show a zero? Been trying to buy another T5 (camper) that has zero previous owner on the docs but hpi says it has had several previously registered plates and some servicing in N.I ? Anyone any knowledge of this? (Kimbers)?
  19. LV ( who don t do the comparison sites) have always been less than than and other internet comparison sites. Needless to say they wouldn't insure the Aston. Good value on the other cars though!
  20. Can t see the pic too clearly but my carpet is a twist pile so I'll say no, the camera is someone else's?
  21. I preferred the wedding car they built .....................
  22. Thanks Dave, Well, I had a good think. I believe I have bought a 2007 model today, the car is to be used as a regular and a stop gap so the comfort and relaxed driving is a plus. Should have it shortly and will report some comparisons with say the 300? This is short term a substitute for my craving for a Lambo G which would probably sit between the Vantage and the Esprit. It sounds promising that your friend has upgraded to an S.
  23. Pilko? Not seen him since 'TLF in France', how about mailing me his email Bibs, got a load of questions not least of all the fuel costs...... ta!
