  1. Found thanks to Giorgio67. Also thanks to Paul Coleman for the help.
  2. Hi everyone, #173G is currently undergoing a partial restoration. As I was inserting a new stud, the passenger side L/H Rear Hub Carrier literally split. I'm therefore looking for a replacement. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.
  3. I hope you find another one soon, good luck in the search.
  4. Awesome, love the Persuaders.
  5. New video of the Range Rover driver being beaten on the ground...seems to be the end part of the beating(???)
  6. ....that or someone stuck a late S1 / S2 steering wheel on Anthony's car at some point. (????)
  7. Paul my steering wheel is exacly like the one in the first photo (the first bigger crash pad model like yours) and my car is further down the line #173 with no central ashtray ( but still a gelcoat car). I'd say Lotus inconsistency once again.
  8. Someone posted the following on liveleak : (Scary, imagine being caught in a similar situation in a timeless classic..) "As a trucker that would deliver in north jersey and New York I am familiar with these gangs. I can hopefully clarify a few things. First the initial "accident" is part of a game they play. They ride in a huge group and will operate together to slow down traffic. Next they pick out high end vehicles targeting people with families in them, the targets will usually be white or Asian. Then one of the riders will do a "brake check" and stop suddenly in front of the target
  9. "It sounds great". Lots of pedestrians giving it a thumb up. "Wow an esprit, it must be very quick?" "My son would love to see it , he's a car nut ...." A few jealous looks , but 99% of the time, reactions are extremely positive.
  10. Awesome story , 30 years wow Love the photo in front of the Lotus building, it reminds me of that old one with the orange esprit. Will you be replacing the side mirrors with the correct shell shaped one?
  11. Any update on this I'm having the same problem with the S1? Rear brakes are seized on .
  12. Cheers Tony and Gavin. Just today I have removed plastic covers off of the carburetors, have removed the jets tubes, and cleaned them with carburetor cleaner. I have removed the banjo bolts and checked fuel filters. Under the top cover everything was clean as far as I could tell. A few observation though : I have noticed that in one of the two carbs, the one closet to the firewall, there was more fuel left than in the other, not sure if that's relevant. On that same carb, the tubes, the ones with the rubber bits, the rubber is damaged (see attached pic). (????) I need
  13. Thanks for the replies chaps, at least I have some leads. I haven't pulled a plug yet or tried anything else,was waiting for some replies before doing anything. I refiled 10 litters with a jerrycan prior to starting the car just today. (of fuel i bought last week). But there was some leftover in the tanks. Yes I did hear the fuel pump ticking and always wait until it settles before cranking.
  14. Hi chaps. Worst scenario ever for me as I was planning to relocate my S1 to A new house with a 3 cars garage and all the space in the world to work on it and the car is now stuck in an inaccessible to a truck garage (currently living in a loft). The car starts with difficulty, after a few attempts, oil pressure is good (level as well) I can't get the car to idle above 1000 rpms it will remain under that and eventually die. If I operate the choke or the gas pedal I get little taping noises coming from the engine and a more violent metallic tap if I operate the gas pedal more viol
  15. I think that's douchy77's car. Great looking car BTW.
  16. I would never sell mine for less than £18 / £20 K GBP. I would assume that prices would vary according to condition and rarity. TonyK once told me that there were less than 16 /17 orange gelcoat S1 (non painted) made worldwide, making mine pretty rare.
  17. Love that colour, congrats. Great collection too, but watchout a bike is about to fall on that poor Europa.
  18. What's up with calling every fucked up video on the internet in the same fashion? 3 guys 1 hammer 2 girls 1cup 1 lunatic 1 icepick Can't lunats be original for a sec?
  19. WTF I've just read through this thread (link below).... Possibly the creepiest and scariest internet attention whore ever! Looks like he was photoshoping himself inside or in front of Ferraris as well...
