  1. Take a look at Footman James who provide insurance cover for my JPS Esprit.
  2. Footman James typically require an appraisal in order to agree a value when taking out the policy. You can't just pull a number out of a hat!
  3. I also use Footman James for JPS#40. They will cover the appraised value of the car rather than just its purchase price. Reasonable terms depending on annual mileage.
  4. I have used Esprit Engineering in Wiltshire – if that is not too far!

    Esprit footwear

    I find these do the job. Importantly they are not fazed by the inevitable consequences of driving through puddles!
  6. JPS #21 described as "original" and as "Turbo"? That would certainly be one for the books. Grimms Fairy Tales perhaps? Rear tyres look non-spec too!
  7. Probably a good idea to get rid of the sun-roof – it did leak from time to time. My wife found some (grainy) photos of #44 from late 1983 or thereabouts. I'm sure Dave will rise to the challenge of putting this JPS back to form…
  8. I had to pay £280 to tax my JPS #40 last September on the DVLA website, since there was no way to avoid it on the web site. The DVLA then sent me the money back a few weeks later, explaining the 40 year rule. Nuts!
  9. Pleased to see another restoration taking shape. Good luck.
  10. I put Dunlop Sport Classic 205/70 R14 on the rear axle of JPS #40. They have the specified width and profile and seem very nice tyres. Sadly there does not seem to be a matching Dunlop 205/60 R14 for the front axle, so I kept the Nankangs that were fitted by the PO.

    Oxfordshire meet up

    Sorry you missed the Bull & Butcher yesterday. Why not propose a date/venue when you will have your Evora back on the road!

    Oxfordshire meet up

    Hi Jonny, I am based near Great Missenden, Bucks. Not too far from Oxfordshire! As a first spring session on Saturday 17th April, I would propose the Bull & Butcher at Turville, RG9 6QU, 01491 638 283. As well as the JPS, I am hoping to bring along one or two local classic car enthusiasts plus spouses. Probably arriving around 2 pm. Naturally, the more the merrier, although I am afraid there is not much notice this time. If planning on lunch rather than just drinks, perhaps wise to call the B&B soonest to fix a table, as they have been busy this week.

    Oxfordshire meet up

    Are there any proposals for meet ups now that country pubs are finally opening again?
  14. “I have to brake with my left foot, then I can keep my right foot on the gas…” Magic!
