  1. Unfortunately I can't make it this year but would highly recommend it.
  2. @mayevoraIan, I did see you but you were deep in conversation and then you'd gone next time I looked round. A very good turn out at the Club Lotus Castle Combe circuit day. Great weather for late April and some very good looking Esprits amongst many many others
  3. Took the Essex out for a spin yesterday and got a parking spot right outside Costa coffee. As soon as I got out of the car there were a couple of baristas drooling all over it. Both were self confessed petrol heads who insisted I couldn't pay for my coffee as I'd made their day simply by parking outside. You've gotta love the reaction that these cars get.
  4. Makes cents but still disappointing if he paid top dollar for it
  5. Going from 99497 miles to 89 miles the following year just means it's been 'round the clock' - no?
  6. 1. Bibs - Evora 2. DaveC72 - Evora 3. KennyN - Emira (If Lotus manage to stick to their estimated delivery date) 4. Mark (indevon)- Evora 5. Techyd (Dean) - Elise 6. Nigel - Europa SE 7. Kevin - Turbo Esprit 8. Choppa Esprit S3 9. Bazza - Something Lotus
  7. Chris It's bolts that hold the wheels on not nuts - are you going nuts? 😂
  8. If it were a horse you'd do it a favour by shooting it. How sad is that. In answer to your question it depends on what you mean by an opportunity? If you mean to make money on it then I suspect not but if you fancy returning it to how it should be and enjoy doing so then possibly if you have the skill to do it.
  9. I've met many a CEO with short arms and deep pockets.
  10. Mate has a pearl white Esprit which was also made for the motor show that year. It's a tricky colour and almost impossible to get a perfect paint match. After a bump he had too have the whole car resprayed. Interestingly the car has been to see Robin Alabaster in Aldermaston who was, in my mind, THE master paintwork man in the UK for Lotus cars.
  11. In the UK all equity release policies are sold with a No Negative Equity Guarantee (NNEG) which means the equity release provider cannot get back more than the value of the house.
  12. From 2023 onwards you will only have to pay £86k towards your personal care costs. That said, it doesn't include the cost of your accommodation at the care home if you're not in your own home
  13. What do you mean by appraised value? Is that 'market value' at time of loss or an agreed value in advance of anything unfortunate happening. If the former then you really MUST (ok, Should) get it on an agreed value basis. Purchase price is irrelevant and always has been.
  14. So if the spread between a ratty Elan and one in very good condition is between £4k and 'only' £15k, does it not reinforce the argument that they should be driven as if they were stolen and just throughly enjoyed? Love driving mine.
  15. And his untimely death having fallen 200 feet from a chimney stack... Only kidding..
  16. Nope you don't. It's on the northern side of the north circular (A406) from the eastern side and if you dip inside at the Park Royal turn it's not deemed to be within the ULEZ zone.

    Essex car meet

    Pete There's only 6 or 7 Essex's on the road but good they've laid on a meet in case any of us turn up.
  18. Those Italians carry a lot of style don't they
  19. Take it easy mate. Too many people are popping their clogs thinking that work is the be all and end all.
  20. Looks like the Buy it Now for £109,250 is the £95k reserve plus the 15% buyers premium inc VAT.
  21. Did the Essex not make its £95k reserve?
