  1. Hi John, Yes please do post some pics... I am interested in your upholstery services.
  2. Well... You started in the right place! keep on looking! you'll find one....
  3. Hi welcome the the forum... Good review. always nice to hear first impressions... Its probably worth close to his asking price... its a 93 with 15k on the clock! yes it needs some work like all low mileage Esprits, but how do you figure $10K? Please don't take offense to my comments. I'm just trying to see your perspective. Seriously that SE is nice! just a few bugs because of the low mileage...
  4. So its reached UK... didn't take long.... ever heard of Captain Tripps? seriously... There has been this bug in the USA that everyone I know have had it. Its similar to food poisoning, with symptoms you describe, but also may include a fever.. You feel like HELL for 24 hours then its gone. Just curious if it is that bug.... I had it twice with the last one about 3 weeks ago... Edited to add: I have to get that toilet! pretty cool!
  5. we could do that... i got a few acres... broke my anti sway bar links... oops forgot to disconnect them. No hurry. I was kinda thinking it would be a far drive for you. Sounds like a nice evening, enjoy yourself! What is the orchestra going to perform?
  6. I have an 88. I love it! I'm fine with the horse power. The Bosch system works fine when tuned. Its all what your willing to settle for.... I wanted an Esprit but couldn't afford and S4s so I got a decent 88. Has the looks of the newer models but mostly the leftovers of the s3...
  7. As I'll be happy to look at one in the Cincy area. Tony, did Ian's Yellow V8 Esprit sell? nobody bid on his ebay auction... bummer. That is one beautiful Esprit! I wanted it....
  8. Now thats a good analogy! Dang I can't get BBC America either!!! YouTube is the only way I've seen the TopGear episodes... before they got pulled. Good luck Esprit hunting.
  9. Hi, good to hear from ya! I love Top Gear also... wish I could get it on my cable... anywho ebay is a crap shoot with cars... With that in mind... I bought my Esprit on ebay. The dealer stood behind the transaction and everything worked out. Would I do it again? HELL NO!!! It was a nightmare trying to get it titled as the out of state dealer was not used to my states regulations regarding titles. It took 3 months to get a title. I didn't get a complete service record. The car had multiple owners. I ended up probably paying a little too much money once I factored in initial service the Esprit required. I did get a happy surprise find as a PO replaced the fuel tanks with alloy. But I would use ebay as a last resort. just my 2c...
  10. Nothing formal or organized and short notice.... I'm meeting a LEF member from Lexington,KY and would like to extend an invitation to anyone else interested. The rust department has already treated the interstate roads, so leave your beauty in the warm garage and drive the beater! This Saturday the 8th of December. I haven't nailed down a time yet, but I suspect it will in the daylight hours. I'll post a time when I get a confirmation from my friend in Lexington. The place is called Buffalo Bob's on the Mt Zion exit off I-75. 9910 Berberich Dr Florence, KY 41042 (859) 371-5244 Map... Come down and meet some fellow Lotus Enthusiasts! We'll have a few beers and B.S. about anything under the sun..... Ah crap! I think I posted this in the wrong area.... sorry! meant to put it in the USA section.... can this be moved?
  11. yeah, I'm watching that auction..... interesting to see what it'll go for.
  12. R.I.P. Mr Knievel you will be missed.... truly sad day.
  13. Lou, your looking to add a tow hook for autocrossing or race use aren't ya? Just can't leave it alone can ya...... Like your supercharged Lincoln LS...... with a tow hook Is your lawnmower supercharged witha tow hook also? just messing with ya, Lou....
  14. Considering the slowing US economy and the ever weakening dollar..... by the time the new Esprit is available the price will probably be close to $180,000 US! For that... I will probably never be able to afford to own a new Esprit. Unless I win the lottery! I agree with Jeff...I would buy an Ultima as roller and put an LS7 engine in it.
  15. Greg, I sent you a PM.... I have a kit if your interested.
  16. Thank you! I've been looking for that color code... along with my sanity that I misplaced somewhere....
  17. sigh....... West coast gets to have all the fun..... 2,223 miles from my house is a bit far to drive.
  18. 15pound cat! What do you feed it? small dogs? good choice on the rifle...
  19. Mine is garaged... armed with a dog that might lick you to death. But I have an arsenal of weaponry including a Mini-14 and a pistol grip 12 gauge shotgun hidden throughout the house. Additionally, I live out in the sticks where everyone has guns, claymores, small cannons, trip wire... so breaking into a house out by me is usually a deathwish and has resulted in such...
  20. I've never had any problems with international transactions using PayPal. With all the scams going around... i could see why WU would be cautious.... but to refuse a legal transaction and NOT refund the transaction fees... thats criminal!
  21. Most memorable: Pink Floyd @ the Cleveland stadium on their Momentary Lapse of Reason tour in IIRC 1988..... Absolutely amazing stage show. The next was Steve Miller Band opening for Greatful Dead. Steve Miller Band just ROCKED out and just played with such enthusiasm I got chills. The Greatful Dead was BORING!!!! They just droned on and on I though they played the same song for 2 hours! Metallica opening for Ozzy Osbourne in Cincinnati was pretty good as was Rush the 5 times I've seen them....
