  1. A few pix of #007 at Bicester Scramble last weekend and the weather held for us 😊
  2. A great day at Bicester Scramble today 😊
  3. How’s the glovebox though?
  4. A leisurely sunny bank holiday Monday demands a pint in a beer garden at a country pub - half of me thought “don’t be a wa**ker and park by the entrance” and the other half thought “but you’ll be able to keep an eye on it”😂
  5. It was indeed Scott driving the Esprit, but they had borrowed mine as Lotus wanted a white one (can’t think why) and Scott’s is yellow 😊
  6. Took the S1 up to Hethel yesterday as Lotus are borrowing it for some filming - managed to get a few snaps😊
  7. It was indeed! Was taking the car up to hethel as they’re borrowing it for some filming 😊
  8. Update for anyone interested - looked round the car on Friday - mechanically looked to be in fairly ok condition although it would have needed a full service + cam belt change + a bunch of hose replacements as they all looked original and well past their sell by date! It has had a very poor respray which would have needed completely redoing + the entire fascia wasn’t attached, so presumably the car would be undriveable as very doubtful any of the instruments or switches would have functioned. Also a number of external trim pieces missing + the stench of petrol indicated a new tank would be needed. It did have a pretty impressive history file though. I decided to swerve it, but for the record, it sold for a very impressive £18K before buyer premium. If the new owner is on here, you’re a very brave man/woman and good luck!
  9. Thanks Tony - really helpful and much appreciated
  10. I don’t suppose anyone here has any knowledge of this ex Ronnie Peterson Elite 502 that’s about to go under the hammer this weekend at Historics? I’m very tempted but while I’m pretty clued up on Esprits, Elites are new to me….any knowledge on the car and/or thoughts on a value would be appreciated as it’s being sold with no reserve - thanks in advance folks 😊
  11. @Sparky has worked his post production magic on a pic he took of my car at FOS - he’s captured about the best angle I’ve ever seen of an S1 IMHO 😊
  12. I bought both my Esprits from Mark and personally think he was great - very knowledgeable, honest and good to deal with - more than happy to recommend him to you 😊
  13. I don’t suppose anyone knows this S3 coming up for auction on The Market do they? I know someone who’s interested in bidding but he’s new to the Esprit world and not sure what to look out for (and those that know me, know I’m probably not the best person to ask!) I said I’d ask on here as the last few Esprits they had up for auction kicked off quite a lot of feedback from some of you 😊
