  1. Well they say history repeats itself, bit of Déjà vu with the Lotus 7 here, then again perhaps they are sharing the Emira platform already??? I am starting to think that a bit too much is going on at once. Time will tell
  2. Well, in my opinion, a pretty poor show on the sellers side of things, personally I would have took the £12k and been glad that it had gone to the museum.... but hey that’s his business. delands, how much was paid for the one they bought in the end?
  3. It seems we are bidding against an early riser with deep pockets, hopefully the reserve is not met and the owner can speak with the museum and come to an arrangement, lets be honest £4k is enough for that cup and the museum is it’s rightful resting place....fingers crossed
  4. Mercedes once again showed their inability to change strategy mid race, something Red Bull are very good at. I would imagine Honda are working tirelessly to get the engine right, even more so since Alonso bad mouthed them publicly the other year, the Japs take things like that very personally. I believe Red Bull are capable enough to build a great chassis as they have done in the past, when Red Bull and Honda eventually get it right Mercedes will have lost their dominance which will be refreshing in itself, as long as it doesn’t become 4 or 5 years of Red Bull dominance as before As MG4
  5. It’s a shame it’s an ambitious price, but when you see Escort’s and Capri’s going for stupid money why shouldn’t a well sorted Esprit be worth £50k. Even the Mk1 Lotus Cortina is ridiculous price wise, I had a Mk 2 and it was good fun to drive but isn’t a patch on an Esprit. Another example is the Excel, How can a Ford Capri be worth more.... it’s a crazy world Too many rose tinted spectacles being worn with a lot of these cars in my opinion
  6. Actually that’s not the reason, but hey, you mentioned it. I don’t rate Vettel either, I think manufacturer dominance has played a big part in both of their careers. No one could touch the Redbull when Vettel got three of his four championships, and Ferrari still couldn’t live with Mercedes even when they were allegedly outside the rules on the fuelling. I can’t see Vettel or Hamilton doing what Senna did in the Toleman (84 Monaco) or Clark, having to turn the ignition off on the straights due to oil pressure problems and still winning.... I just don’t see them being on the same level.
  7. You are entitled to an opinion just as much as I am,. imo Hamilton doesn’t come close to Fangio, Clark or Senna
  8. Maybe this will fool her 7D108AF2-261E-49C9-AA56-2595D90EAE94.MP4
  9. Bollocks to the pair of them imo, I’m cheering Norris on!
  10. Top tip learnt from Spain...... keep the Gin in the fridge too
  11. Ramjet. Speak to Michael Young in Hong Kong👍
  12. Hey fellas, can’t argue that there are some real rough builders out there with very poor moral compasses, they are normally found in the local pub on a friday telling anyone that will listen how much money they have got.They also view clients as prey Good builders seldom have to look for new work and normally work for the same group of customers on a recurring basis. I learnt a long time ago to avoid the potential customer that “knew the price of everything and the value of nothing” A good rule of thumb is to research, research more and speak to previous clients, that have had
