Hi, have been all excited about getting a 1999 V8 Esprit with under 30k a real minter.Thats why i have put my NA up for sale .Cant have two ,well i can but wife says i can't. My NA is great ,wife finds it a little heavy on steering,thats why i thought of a V8 which has power steering (Well thats what i told her)
So over the weekend i go to see the car again with cheque book in hand. (Car in North Devon,holiday home where the owner keeps the car)
Owner jumps in to take car out of garage ,turns the key .....starts engine ...then nasty sound ....think timing belt slipped. owners says "Oh dear" I say a few rude words and put my cheque book back in my pocket.
I am sure there are some great V8's and there owners love them.
But i dont think i want a V8 now.
Think it would be cheaper to swap the wife in. or just dont let her drive the NA.
