  1. Lex I almost bought this car 14 years ago from Speedmaster cars (not 2009) when it was last for sale. I have a lot of pictures of it if anybody is interested. It was owned by the same guy who sold me Essex No.11 (he had two Essex Esprits and a collection of F1 cars inc an Essex F1 car). I test drove it but it wasn't very good (brakes useless and it stank of petrol). I understand that it was sold outside of the UK in 2006/7, I think to somebody in France. It was also mentioned in a club Lotus magazine a couple of months ago.
  2. Yes it was my car that I had brought back to life. It's now Dan's car but I kept the registration number. Pictures were taken by me!
  3. Lamborghini did do one on their own. It was probably ahead of its time and not exactly a looker.
  4. That's an odd advert. If I understand it correctly, it's not for sale for £20k but Mr Pallet Racking is asking if anybody will restore it for him for £20k.
  5. Hi Chris Some, not all Essex Esprits have "Essex" cam covers like mine in the picture below.
  6. @Jack Stone Max, your car after the M40 ding?
  7. Can't help but just had one replaced on my M100 Elan - not cheap..
  8. As your asking.. Liked the video but I think if you could show the product your using at each stage, why and its cost it would be more useful.
  9. Jim Clark practicing to see where the rest of the cars are?
  10. I think it's a proposed bringing forward of the 2040 date BUT it refers to a ban on new car sales not a ban on petrol cars as such.
  11. Obviously the Evija is a technical masterpiece but I think the Esprit is better looking
  12. Hi Lex I've just had a crawl under the Essex and it looks to me as if it's galvanised silver with a thin layer of black paint over the top. Some of the black paint has come away is a small number of places leaving the silver showing through underneath.
  13. Looks like you stopped just short of the full end of jetty James Bond experience
  14. I'm no Sparkles but I thought I had the same problem on my first car. Thought the indicator had an intermittent fault. Light kept repeatedly going on then off then on again. Blinkin' cars eh?
  15. Mate, your Esprit & rain - I assume it's a hypothetical question?
  16. Thanks for all your efforts Martyn. I've just asked for a refund.
  17. That's the one that appeared fully rebuilt and featured in a recent Absolute Lotus mag. I remember the owner saying that it was a keeper and he couldn't see himself ever selling it. I guess things change and he had obviously spent a lot of time and money on it.
  18. Next door is The Old School Cafe - check when they're open as it's a great place for a drink or bite to eat.
