  1. Looking great Neil, hope you manage to locate a sunroof panel soon!
  2. Hi Pete, Not located a suitable car yet. Regards. Dave.
  3. Looking very clean Neil, you've done an amazing job there. Any issues found with the engine that required attention?
  4. Great to see this car being resurrected! Saw the advert and very tempted by this car however being realistic it was beyond my capabilities and garage space to take on such a project. Really pleased to see the car in good hands and look forward to seeing progress on it. Please let me know if you decide to part with it once she's on the road !!!
  5. Looks stunning. Just read the thread from beginning and very impressed. The S1 will certainly look the part in Paris!
  6. Thanks Michael, that's much appreciated. Will keep an eye on the ads and also will PM John.
  7. Private enthusiast seeking a running / driving and MOT'd RHD Esprit S3. NA or Turbo considered. An S2 also considered. Must be usable and driving however work not objected to within reason! Would prefer to buy privately form another enthusiast and I can promise a good home for the right car. Prefer Monaco White with dark interior however anything considered. Happy to travel for viewing and cash waiting / no nonsense transaction for the right car. Please PM via the forum or call Dave on 07834 287973. Regards. Dave.
  8. Agree with that Chris, very strange! I suspect that may have been nothing wrong with the car at the time of MOT expiry, just that the owner had other car/s that he then focussed attention on and the Esprit was just left sat there.
  9. Interesting! It does seem a real shame to have left the car just standing since the last MOT in 2013 outside and open to the elements.
  10. Thanks Pete, the spec is perfect for me along with interior / exterior colour. Only snag for me is the level of work required to get the car up and running again. Anyone know of the car or been to view ?
  11. Hi Jon Dont know the car and putting the number into DVLA website doesn't bring back any record. Could have been transferred onto another car. Do you know the original reg number as it may have been returned to that and could show on DVLA? Further to that, putting LTS 383 through google suggests that the number was auctioned in 2016 in Knaresborough hence may be on renention. Worth trying a post on social media -Lotus Esprit pages as that would get a fairly wide viewing and someone may know. Do you have any details of the purchaser you could try and recontact for details? On another note do you still have an Esprit? I'm based in North Leeds and currently scanning the market for an S3 but interested in chatting to owners etc. All the best with your search. Regards. Dave.
  12. Thanks David, I've seen there are quite a few S3 Turbo / NA cars on the market with dealers in the South however prices seem 'ambitious' and not too much movement. I will keep scanning the market including forthcoming auctions etc. Nice part of the world where you are, do you know of any Lotus meets in the area at all as I'd love to have a look at Esprits and chat to owners for hints and tips etc. Cheers. Dave.
  13. Thanks Si, I'm basically looking towards a running, MOT'd and driving car in overall good condition, requiring some improvement and the usual maintenance rather than a project requiring restoration. I'd like to acquire a car I can drive and enjoy primarily. Im open minded on NA / Turbo although I do love the overall look and appeal of the Turbo cars. Ideally I'd like to acquire a car from a fellow enthusiast where I can learn first hand about the history and ownership rather than go through a dealer. ive narrowed down to an S3 but will keep open minded re the year. In terms of budget I am looking at 15-20k with some flexibility for the right car..... Not an immediate rush as I m involved in a building project currently which is taking most of my time however I am keeping an eye on the market over Autumn / Winter. Cheers. Dave
