About 8 months ago I started thinking about my 24th birthday. I had my heart set on a Porsche 964 3.6 Turbo or a 993TT. One day while walking down Old Town Pasadena, I caught a glimpse of a beautiful G-car (might of been Slade). The car looked so sexy. I became intrigued by the Esprit
So I started doing research on Esprits and came to the conclusion that a V8 would fit me best. I found a '02 V8 at a local dealer. I made the drive down to the dealer and asked to see the Esprit. They bring it out. This was my first time seeing an Ann. Esprit in person and it was love at first sight. I was amazed by the stance, the sound. The car had such a presence. The interior felt great.
I ask to drive it. I take it easy at first and get used to driving with my big Harley Davidson boots without hitting 2 pedals at once. After feeling comfortable with the car, I hit it in 2nd and 3rd gear. The straight exhausted, de-catted, red ECU'ed V8 pulled with such a fury comparable to that of a jet barreling down the runway. The AP brakes were awesome as well. Needles to say, I forgot about the Porsche.
I didn't buy that car for other reasons but 3 days before my birthday, I took delivery of my Final Edition Esprit.
