  1. Apols if he is on here but just spotted these on a reply to a tweet from Harry Metcalfe - Dave Clark Designs? Nice one mate if you are and hope you don't mind me posting -
  2. I'd pay good money to see that mate. Stay well
  3. You got it bad Steve! Next thing you'll be turning up at Donny in Thieme's Hat & Sunglasses! :๐Ÿ˜›
  4. Amazing how much that stuff is going for. I remember Clive telling me and Paul he had a ton of stuff in the East Carleton attic! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  5. Great to hear Mykah / TAR - The car always caught my eye at Donny ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  6. Think we've discussed before Steve - 015 was the Hew Dundas' car. I think you reached out to him but he never kept track of what B&C did with it...................
  7. ๐Ÿ˜† Sorry Steve - it was only 6 years ago
  8. Hopefully the original poster is on here and will add but some great photos of 008 have emerged on the Esprit Group on FB
  9. Bazza I went to look at that at Speedmaster cars as well! As you say it was poor and as I had 017 to compare - it was a no-go.
  10. All - so my stored Esprit decided to deflate its NSF original NCT and its split wide open. Are the modern day Eagle NCT 5's OK for the G Esprit?
  11. Thanks Bibs - The Esprit proved to be too big for the garage at the house we live in now so is on my drive although its under a Specialised Indoor bespoke cover I bought direct from them about 25 years ago! That then has tarpaulin over it which as kept it dry but keeps getting holed. I'll be ordering one soon then.......... Would still like to see a G car covered if anyone has a shot?
  12. No-one bought an outdoor cover for an Esprit?
  13. Can anyone comment on the fit and waterproof effectiveness of the Covers please - Looking at an Outdoor one for my G Turbo HC - does anyone have a photo of one fitted to one of these?

  15. Definitely a sunroof so probably an Essex Blue car just with the stickers.......think I have seen a couple in Japan like that.
  16. Its great .....and he still loves it
  17. I've watched all his Video's multiple times over! Pretty much my ideal situation right there - lovely Cotswold farm and a barn full of crackers! For those that don't know Harry founded EVO magazine........a proper pertrolhead.
  18. Richard Parramint has just added some amazing Silver car images on FB here - sorry if I have not linked it correctly - arrow left to go through the album. Think we might even be able to identify the location?
  19. Just posted on the Lotus cars FB page - new one to me -
  20. Nice one Chris - no Esprit though?
  21. "Chapmanโ€™s Esprit was built in February 1981 (but not registered until August), and used by the Big Man until his death in December 1982. He covered just over 4,000 miles in the car, which was built to his exact spec." Again I'm amazed there are no photos of Colin in it if he used it that much? But on the subject did MJK have a company car?
  22. Good spot Dave! Is that Giampaolo Dallara in the car with him? Yes I know he liked the Elite/Eclat/Excel - seems to have liked his comfort as other than those he only seems to have ever driven around in his Rangey or Merc.............. Dallara was a big fan of Colin's - when news released of the new Dallara Stradale he was quoted - "Dallara said the Stradale evokes the spirit of Lotus sports cars built under Chapman, whose work he started admiring when the UK niche automaker began building the Lotus Seven lightweight roadster. "I like to think that Colin Chapman, if he was still ar
  23. Has anyone ever actually seen a photo with Colin driving or sat in an Esprit? The one where he is just about to get in to the Silver car with Giugiaro is about the closest I think I've seen!?
  24. Meaning no disrespect here but wasn't there some conjecture a while ago about how much he actually used this car?
