A proper barn find 1  even has the hay/straw by it lol.  

Welcome to the forums,  As buddsy says, the Esprit is a real head turner for looks,  Although your tvr is a great looking car it will turn heads due to the engine roar, which tvrs fitted with v engines have always been for  😀

Still makes me feel sad that the factory closed, such a shame to loose another british made sports car marque, chaps very proud who built them also, as the same as lotus cars folks used to write their names under the dash,body and trim parts etc.

Always rememember watching the old top episode , when the three studes walked around the empty factory,  still had old tuscan bodyshells outside also,  horrible to see the factory bare after so many years,  at the time i think it was been used to store classic cars nowdays :cry:

Cheers for the pics of the Esprit,  You will fall in love with it, totally different drive than any car you will of ever driven , and no the steering wheel is not bent out of place,  its supposed to be not straight before you ask. :thumbup:

You can start a project thread on here,  all of the members will answer any questions or quiries,  take a look at a member called Sparky on here,   he has a thread on a silver turbo se that needed lots of work and was in really poor shape.

Welcome to TLF. :welcome:

I think you'll find the Esprit totally different as well. In a good way.

You should finish off your profile as well, or should we just call you Mr.X? :hrhr:

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.
