  1. Dave I actually rather like it mate, but an awful lot of effort. Obviously I would agree you should pay 200k if it would get me a roof stereo ?
  2. Dave, i reckon at best it's worth 10k and seriously narrow market, plus all the approval stuff. Build the Esprit and be done with it. Imagine if you can't get it approved then it's worthless apart for a museum maybe. Of not can I have your roof stereo ? Dan
  3. @bibs have you spoke to Mark at Marrells? You might end up with a free space but I said he needs to talk to you first mate.
  4. Dave they have so much money I think 60% of the people do nothing apart from wander around in strange hats. It's a totally different world which I am not sure is great. Still, I have a bit of wood to remember it by.
  5. Chuck Hack or something, I can't really remember sure you can find it on Google. The other one was the Movement Cafe Greenwich, all very odd but good fun at the time.
  6. Now there is a story behind that, I got an email out of the blue from Google, obviously didn't believe it but turned out to be true. Went up to their London office which is trying a little bit too hard, but wifey had dropped me off at the station and I had left my laptop bag in the car. So I had nothing with me not even a pen. Get invited in to a meeting room with at least 20 people all with Macs linking to about 5 screens and I was like what the f&£k. So it turned out I had done an art installation for the Olympics and they had discovered it and I was now in the front line for a Google Plus and Converse installation in Hoxton. I had to borrow a pen and paper, completely out of my depth. So got a designer I know to jump in and we built this "thing" in 6 days for them in Hoxton Gallery and that was the sign outside the front door. Interestingly I never went to a meeting with less than 10 people. Then 2 weeks later ripped it all and stuck it in a skip. Next day they phone and say where is your invoice and it was paid within one hour. Different world! Done a few other jobs in their Campus then never heard a thing from them again. Weird I
  7. Lovely, I prefer the plus 2 to the elan.
  8. 6.20 flight out tomorrow. So tucked up ready for next sat
  9. Jon did you get Barry to put that rear number plate on?
  10. Dan I had full intentions of doing the Goodyear lettering but I am in the office today then, fly out to Germany in the morning till late Thursday so I just don't think I will get the time
  11. Barry it looks better in the flesh I am actually scared to wash it. But watching yesterday about Graham Hill which is helping
  12. It is every women I know fav car, the 356 not the Lotus. That was original and the only porker I will ever own apart from a 928 GTS. Got to say £700 is a lot of money, but I do not regret a penny of it, respray is what 8k so complete deal and I love the fact it is original. I thoroughly recommend Mark and thanks to @Bibs for the recommendation. Best in show for me, MK1 RS2000 which was lovely and a full rally spec Turbo 2 Renault all mastic and plastic windows loved that.
  13. John, I got to say it was £700 but I think he probably should have charged more, it took him 3 full days and the results are beyond belief. Still got the patina which is part of her. I am a simple bloke but I had a tear in my eye when I picked her up. It was honestly that astonishing, the difference. Unfortunately my wife loved this more as you can see! thanks Dave, I am sticking the wife's BM in next month if he can do that with 36 year old paint work then 3 years old should be amazing
  14. Not saying the man has OCD but he repainted the wheel bolts! Great service, lovely chap who really cares about his job.
  15. To be fair the pedals are pretty close together and it is tight down there but I always drive in trainers and have no problem
  16. How tall are you? I am 6 1" and I fit in mine fine.
  17. who is the chap who had the blue G car, and done a few videos with it i am sure that is up for sale at 25k some where and is a really nice car
  18. Picking her up Sunday, really excited from the pictures she looks bloody amazing and I mean out of this world amazing.
  19. Good point will do when i get it back
  20. not sure yet to be honest as long as it is before the festival i will be happy. On another note spoke to Rick yesterday as we are making some plans to get down there, did his Elite make the show and shine and if so what does he need to do and if not is he on the TLF stand. was planning on getting there about 9am what do you reckon?
