  1. Steve I can do this tomorrow as well if you want me to
  2. John hats off to you sir. That looks lovely. I drove one of them years ago, as my neighbour had one I am pretty sure I had a 205 GTi at the time and i couldn't believe how well it handled. they have got to start being worth decent money soon.
  3. Chaps what pressures do you run on your Esprits, I have just checked the manual and it says 21 fronts 25 back. Should I go with this seems low to me but i guess i am used to modern tyres. thanks in advance Danny

    Barrie no that really isn't helping but luckily i haven't looked at that picture so it can't and won't affect me. Not at all, not even a little bit might have a little peak later maybe, probably won't though as I am so not bothered and I only want BBS Dan/be strong you can resist

    I know all that but look at them!
  9. Good point I missed that bit
  10. Gareth, I am gutted for you, sounds like they knew it was there and planned it. do you have any pictures I am sure that might help, what is the feed back from the police? I trust it was insured
  11. Chaps thank you for the invite unfortunately I got to build a dog pen in the garden. Oh the joys!
  12. It is now supporting a TLF sticker you will be pleased to know. Which is black and gold so looks rather good
  13. Yes mate cocked that up on a grand scale didn't I . Good to finally meet albeit briefly I don't think I have ever played second fiddle to a tool kit before shame some f:&ker backed into whilst I was parked up on the way home.
  14. Jonny sorry for not spending a bit more time with you just my boy was itching to have a look round. Thank you it is lovely, gutted yours wasn't there. It was very lucky I could have been a whole worse if I had been 3ft back. i made a few boo boos I parked on the ramp, Bibs called I moved it then Brooke pointed out I had parked in the show and shine. Talk about cause trouble on your first time out. I know I know Rick but his Elite and Fabian's S1 were the cars of the show for me mind you how nice were the Lotus Cortina's
  15. Agreed great day, had a bit of a disaster on the way back stopped in the high street and some twat backed into the side of my car luckily only caught the back bumper f&£King annoying. I don't think he could see it as it is so low but he also didn't bother to turn his head and he did have parking sensors and I really hate him a lot. Going to have get it resprayed. But top day and good to put some faces to names.
  16. Fabian your was the car of the show for me. I loved the button on the gear knob, I was going to have a chat with you but you looked a bit busy with Bibs
  17. Steve, yes Barrie of Essex fame had it restored at GST I think it was there for about a year. It honestly drives I imagine like it was when it was new. I can't stop driving it. i spent 2 hours cleaning it yesterday but a good hour of that was just standing there looking at it. Assuming circumstances don't change I will be keeping it for ever.
  18. jonny I have driven a few and it was a country mile above all of them . I just need to work out how to check the oil. Spoke to Gerald about this so going to give it a go tomorrow. It is very very cool and can you imagine having one in 1981 I would have been 11 and the old man had a brown with gold pin stripe Triiumph 2000 mk2 and 8 track and a neighbour had one it blew my mind. You are more than welcome to have a go at the weekend, I adore your car. If we can meet up that would be great.
  19. Barry, I might just do that banished the Merc to the drive. my garage now has that lovely smell, mind you I just been looking at the panel gaps they are hysterical and I love it even more for it. I saw one of these when I was a boy and I can't believe I have one in my garage. It is certainly a lot less hassle than our new puppy
  20. Jonny, picked up from a slightly gutted looking Brooke today, we came back on the totally traffic free m25 ( when does that happen) with me and my 11 year old boy. Every biker and I mean every single one gave a thumbs up. Loads of smiles from people, it goes like stink. I am totally in love with it tomorrow is give it a wash and start to make the to do list. Oh and I have literally just come out the garage with a glass of wine. Totally up for the picture shoot can pm you my number if you wish. Dave it is gorgeous, it is going no where. Steady improvement and to be honest it doesn't need much you could argue a respray, but it has a lovely patina and I don't know if I want to get rid of that. nice decision to have though isn't it
  21. Cheers Steve, it's a keeper.!! I am intending to spend most of sat night in the garage looking at it. probably with a glass of wine.
  22. Its been a long time coming........ so yes all very exciting!! And for the first time in 22 years I have told my wife before picking up a car so less nervous than usual about bringing it home
