  4. Fav Top Gear/Clarkson Video clip.... (even though the Esprit got spanked into third place) was the Supercar Shootout when the Cerbera showed all the other cars just what fast means! B) Mind you, if you check the whole video clip the V8 does give an Escort Cossie a royal whooping!!!! ......on another note I really do think that at least ONE year Jeremy Clarkson should consider shaving that poodle off his head for children in need or some other charity!
  5. Cheeky git... lol YES I am thankfully in the 30 something bracket sitting quite comfortably at 34... lol
  6. ok here's an easy one.... or.... ......VW CAMPER.....officially cooler than Ice since 1965.......
  7. Would have liked this but unfortunately got my TA night so cant make it... Need to get the motor out! lol
  8. I have a fantastic one that Ive used for a year and its not marked the paint one bit nor has it worn or let in any leaks! I cant remember the name as yet but I shall have a look when I get home. Cant recommend it enough!
  9. for further pictures and info why not contact the girl herself. However you may have to be patient for responses as she spends much of her time working on cruise ships! Elaine 07770 900333
  10. ........ In the Essex area and just got the yellow beast back so when's the next show or meet guys? Pauly B)
  11. Nah it was ME!! I was just picking it up after having my Gearbox rebuilt so preparing for a nice blat once the road led into the countryside!!!! hee hee I drove past the Army estate on my way to Layer. I take it this was what you saw.......
  12. ........goes to FAIRFAX MOTORSPORT in Colchester. James at Fairfax has completed some fairly extensive work on my Esprit and a very thorough and professional job on it he has done too! AND he wont charge to the extortionate prices we are all used to! He covers Servicing, tuning and repairs and is Essex based. I can personally vouch for the way that he looks after the cars too. (He'll even keep all the broken bits so he can show you what happened and what he has done!!! lol) SO.... if you are not a million miles away from Colchester and want some work done on your Esprit youcould do much worse that to give James and his team a call on 01206 769022
  13. Great Im totally up for that! (Providing the weather's not doing one of it's usuals!!!) It would be really great to meet a few other owners as Ive had the esprit approaching a year now and its hardly been used and Ive not met another owner yet!
  14. After many years of membership to various other car forums it seems really strange that there are not more "local" Esprit get togethers. For example there are a good few owners in Essex yet hardly any local meets? (Usually there are monthly meets for most marques) It seems that the only meets are the larger organised event meets such as Donny or Brands, and nothing more regular and localised. Perhaps our cars are just that bit rarer.......?
  15. Why not.. I fancy a day out in the Esprit and a packet of crisps!
  16. Yes I have a spotless V8 (and im just down the road from you!!!) More than welcome, give me a shout on ********* (leave a message if I dont pick up)
  17. Ok got some more information on it from her...(these are her words...) Apparently it was originally a Prototype. There were only 97 made of this model so i am told and this is now one of 3 left. Driven around the track by colin chapman, i did have a box of history but i cannot find it. The damage was due to the AA taking it from A to B they did not close the bonnet properly so there is damage to the front. Prior to this accident in '04 it was driven most weekends and it has always been under cover. I have a video also of the car being driven around the airodrome in Earls Colne, it was featured in a television program called speed on sky one a few years ago......
  18. I was talking to a friend over the weekend and even though Ive known her for around a year now believe it or not it came to pass that she was actually a Lotus owner too and I never knew!! She has this: Now I know she is going abroad very shortly and she was asking me if I was interested in making her an offer on the car. I'm fully pushed with the V8 and the Campervan but I thought somone on here might be interested? I dont know much about the car or the model (Im sure you will all chirp up with all the interesting details! lol) but all I know is that it has done 67000k miles and that its an Esprit Series 2 (Black badge whatever difference that is) and that its had 3 owners. She said there is some slight bonnet damage as the wind caught under it and lifted it off. I dont know what she wants for it and I have no other information for it but if anyone is interested then I know the car is in Colchester and you'll have to act fast as she is going abroad before December. Im more than happy to put you in touch. THIS IS NOT A SALES POST I just thought it might interest someone on here and it would be nice for it to go to an enthusiast I think and it would be another little gem back on the road... Paul
  19. How much approximately would that little package set me back matey? Paul
