  1. Couldn't resist it

    Blimey Pete, you'll own an Evora 430 GT in a couple of years at this rate.

  4. Having just read about Vern’s wife who secretly had his Esprit seats recovered I thought I’d see what remarkable things have people done for you? Around 11 years ago I bought my Essex Esprit and set about collecting all things ‘Essex’. The memorabilia goes back to the early 1980’s so there wasn’t much of it about but what there was all seemed to appear on ebay. Mrs Bazza was at home looking after the children (1 and 3 years old) when she suddenly says that she wants to start earning again and has got herself a part time job delivering Thompson local deliveries to the houses in our area. So, off she goes with both kids in tow dropping off the phone directories and getting a few pence per delivery. The problem is that where we live everybody (except us) seemed to have a long driveway to walk down before you get to the door so as I saw it she was flogging away for bugger all. Her choice mind. I’m then bidding on the next Essex item on ebay but I miss out to an ebayer called “Steve Elite” . Next time I see ‘Steve’ bidding on an Essex item I really push the bidding up but he still wins it. It happens a few more times and I’m now getting quite annoyed. A few weeks later see another rare Essex publication on ebay. OK, I’m earning good money in The City so, childish as it might seem, I ain’t going to be beaten by him again and will pay 'whatever it takes'. Ha, I finally outbid him to win it! May have paid a stupid amount but, I beat him. Scroll forward to later in the year and we have our wedding anniversary so I give Mrs Bazza the usual box of chocs, as you do. She then presents me with a huge presentation file full of Essex memorabilia. Yep, she was ‘Steve Elite’ and every time I bid against him/her on ebay it meant that she had to deliver another 25 directories. Obviously I had no clue what was going on but the money she was making dropping the telephone directories off was being used to bid for the Essex stuff. She said she almost wept watching me drive the price higher and higher...
  5. They're all at it!

    ..now it will just leave you feeling exhausted..

    Why, have you got nice knees?
  7. London T-Charge

    I've got 5 cars and the only one that doesn't pay the Toxicity charge is.... the big V6 diesel...
  8. Watch Collectors/Fanatics

    I'm toying with getting a new (old) watch. At the weekend I saw a Omega Seamaster like mark's but with a black face. the shop is asking £1500. Any idea if that sounds about right. No guarantee of course..
  9. Essex Random Images.......

    Mark Whilst I agree that there’s a price for (almost) everything, it would be very very expensive..
  10. Essex Random Images.......

    Thanks Mike, glad yours is progressing.
  11. HOFMANN'S LOTUS MEET

    Pete No. It's still shiny from the show and shine competition at Brands. The weather was perfect, warm, no rain and no bugs all over the front to clean off!
  12. Essex Random Images.......

    One taken on Saturday at the Hofmann's meet.
  13. HOFMANN'S LOTUS MEET

    Great time at Hofmanns, very interesting tour of the workshop with some fabulous machinery in there. I loved the 6 cylinder DBS.
  14. [Ebay-bot]1979 Lotus Esprit S2

    It looks very familiar. I think it's got one of my old (original) wiper blades that I donated to a gold S2.
  15. There was never a JPS S3 as such but there are other colour interiors for early black Esprit Turbos Danny has one in black with black interior originally owned by a Mr Black
