  1. I have never camped until I went with tents to the Me Mans 24h some years ago. Never again. It rained and it was horrible. In subsequent years we took camper vans that meant we were dry and had some basic amenities
  2. Agreed. This has been debated in Porsche club circles and Esso confirm their Synergy+ is ethanol free, at least until the next round of regulation changes which I think are due in late 2022/2023. I believe Esso are the only ones to guarantee this and the Porsche Club now have a deal for an Esso Fuel card that also gives you extra discounts on their petrol in the summer months.
  3. I was at the auction and it was a guy with his wife that bought it. He didn't look like a dealer but then again, what does a dealer look like ? There was another guy in the room who was biding as well but he dropped out at about £55k. The car did look immaculate though, both inside and out. I didn't check underneath 🙃 Hammond's Bentley S2 went for £29k which seemed a good price to me. It was a mightily impressive car. Again, excellent condition other than the usual cracking in the leather. Not split, just nicely patina'd. The front grill was a thing of glistening beauty. You may need a petrol station to run it though.
  4. The title may be incorrect. The short description sounds like it may not have a turbo. I guess we will have to wait for the full description and photos
  5. Three very nice and iconic Esprits are coming up for sale on the online auction site, The Market. They seem to be from a private seller and being called the Esprit Limited collection. They seem to have high estimates. They have just been posted so more details and photos to follow. Anyone on here ? 1978 JPS Esprit - #21 1981 Essex Esprit 1999 Sport 350
  6. Looks like a great turnout. Shame work meant I couldn't make it
  7. Hi all. Great morning meet as always. Thanks for organising @ChrisJ . Decent breakfast and chat with you all. I took a short video as a few of us left.
  8. This looks great Fabian. Well done to you and all who made the effort, including the 2CV
  9. He is quoted as selling some of his collection to fund the expansion of his classic car business...intending to save more cars (and make more money I guess)
  10. Hadn’t given it much thought but yes, you are right, temperature drops the higher you go !
  11. Wow Dave. Hope everyone is OK. I am no meteorological expert but makes me wonder how you can have ice balls in a heatwave !!
  12. Thanks for posting @Greg | ValetPro Great to read. Shocking that they rely on donations given the service they offer.
  13. What about this one?
  14. Probably the most expensive S1 I have seen for sale:
  15. The Orange S1 that sold at the London Classic Car Show, referred to above, looks like a stonking bargain against this one: Of course, the asking price may not reflect the final sale price.
  16. Mark at Stocks has one for sale.
  17. Just hide the Vauxhall round the corner like I did! Sounds like we are inside anyway.
  18. Dave and Megan Dave Eds Sparky & The Ayatollah Spadger and Denise ChrisJ Painterdave Me me me and Schumacher Pete and Sue Dan E Spyros and one of the family
  19. Is North Weald not an option ? They had some good breakfast (food) options.
  20. Great job @Sparky and thanks for the photos but.......🥴
  21. @SimonJam - there is also this one: The white one is definitely overpriced. You should be looking to pay around £25k for a good one
  22. Good job there @Sparky Can we not talk Lotus without mentioning the word Emira 🙃
