  1. Hello,

    I guess I'm doing this all the wrong way I have made numerous postings before getting around to introducing myself as a Newbie. But I usually do do things the wrong way around and friends describe me as being incapable of running a bath without all hell breaking loose.......

    Anyway, Katie here. I attended my first LEF event last weekend at Heythrop. Absolutely brilliant experience and wonderful fun to be part of an Esprit convoy. I have posted in the events forum on Heythrop too.

    My partner posts on here occasionally, he's been a member for awhile.....screen name JBF.

    We have an EspritV8 and love it to bits. Had an EspritS4 prior to met a grim end and we don't mention it......that was a bad evening :lol:

    I know nothing of the workings of Esprit's, just a keen admirer/enthusiast/driver, and keen to attend many more events.

    You're a great crowd; friendly, fun and welcoming.

  2. There will be an 'LEF' parking area, come and spend the day with us :rant:

    Thank you Bibs, that's a nice friendly offer. I am wondering how we will recognise the LEF parking area......will your backside be on display again? :lol:

    What time are LEF folks genrally aiming to arrive? We got held up last year by friends in a poncey Elise that had one flaming problem after another en route.

  3. I failed to understand the introduction of it being illegal to drive whilst holding a mobile 'phone; to so specifically single it out and charge fines and penalty points. Surely, like smoking, eating, drinking, changing CD, tuning radio, laughing hysterically and etc. it should all come under one big umbrella......driving without due care and attention. Theoretically, you can have a 'phone meeting on a hands free, and have a cigarette on the go at the same time. How distracting it would be to have a 'phone/conference meeting whilst driving, yet, if hands free, you can. I find it all contradictory. What next......3 points for readjusting an uncomfortable knicker line on a long journey?

  4. Thank you Bibs. We have both very much enjoyed viewing those. I wish we had been able to take a shot of you whilst the car you were in overtook made for an hilarious hanging out of Esprit window with hair flapping in the wind!

    P.S. Both of us much hoping to be at Castle Combe, purely in a spectating capacity!

  5. Welcome to the forum, Katie. You can introduce yourself in the newbies section if you wish and show us all some pictures of your car.

    Many thanks for the weclome:-)

    I think my other half, Jason, although I have no idea what he calls himself on here, has been around on here for quite some time. I started posting yesterday after returning from Heythrop, great crowd, super day. We were in the azure blue EspritV8, magnolia leather interior/blue piping/glass roof.....and the dodgy gear stick!!!

  6. I would just like to add what a brilliant day yesterday was. Despite foul weather it was great fun and wonderful to be part of an Esprit convoy. Many thanks to all the organisers for doing such a great job, have also much enjoyed the pictures too.

    Was a wonderful opportunity to be able to chat to Brian Morgan regarding our now almost infamous gear stick!! He offered numerous thoughts and advice; hopefully there will finally be an end to me attempting to pull away in third whilst Jason screams hysterically, and I will no longer require the services of an osteopath each time I do manage to get it into first. It's not a female's officially buggered!!!

  7. I too am sick of seeing smokers chucking their fag ends (which is a form of littering) anywhere they choose to. It 's disgusting. Strikes me smokers have lowered standards, and lower standards of hygeine too......they chuck their litter and seem to be impervious of the fact that they stink :lol:
