  10. back to the original topic the 5th gear esprit, just got back from Paul Matty's. Guess what they have in their workshop? yes the 5th gear esprit. they picked it up earlier this week and are going to do some sort of appraisal on it. guy i spoke to said they havent had time to have a proper look yet but all the paint is coming off where they stuck the plastic rearscreen on with duct tape.

  14. Spoke to Alan (Club lotus chairman) yesterday at the classic car show, he said he was looking forward to seeing all the esprits arrive and that we had various options for parking, ie outside if weather ok. he also said the elan M100 lot are planning to arrive in convoy as well. seemed very positive and said club if for the members and we could do what we want. so well done to paul for sorting this out howard

  21. been working away all week so no internet acess, hence late reply. Renu keeps her Sport 350 in the garage at the house her other two cars (V6 406 Coupe and SWB Landrover) live on the drive with my daily drive (BMW 520i Touring). My S4 lives in a rented garage at a secret location about 4 miles way. Howard
  22. Am I right in thinking that the cars are actually built in South Africa? or is that a myth? Howard
  23. Great day out, I am looking forward to seeing the photos as I dropped my camera in the car park at the services and all my photos are out of focus. Thanks to Dermot, Kato, Rob and Paul for a wonderful day... great run and super lunch venue.
