It’s reg was YBJ 29X - white with black leather (clearly retrimmed)  

It was seen on the back of a recovery truck about the time this programme would have been filmed. I don't think he's had it long. But a long term Esprit fan obviously, and knows Paul Matty, my old local Lotus specialist.

I think this was it.

That looks like the same car - here’s a screen grab

Don't knock the ye olde worlde Nokia 6310. They'll be the only mobile phones working in time to come the way things are going. Mine used to last a week of business use, rather than 8 hours like now.

TNG over and ou.....

Simon @Sizona knows that my phone is a Nokia 6310 (can I be a STG?) which means he can't send me pictures of the league table with Chelsea above Arsenal 😄

See, there's always a plus side.

Ah, well, that’s where you’re wrong because it was a company phone.
 

The previous mobile phone I had looked like something John Wayne’s radio operator used when he hit the beach at Iwo Jima, it weighed as much as a house brick, and the battery lasted about 5 minutes.

@Chillidoggy long-life battery. Huge tick. Honorary TNG medal in the post.


And well deserved it is, especially as I’ve never paid a single penny for a mobile phone in my entire life.

Interesting that the Govt MOT checker says it was a white Esprit first registered in March 1994 and has yet to have it's first MOT!

It was an S4 I think modded to look like a V8 with a additional sparkly metallic paint job. 

Ta-da

Back on topic, just watched the Esprit episode. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea but that dash is amazing. I need one for my TE!

Anyone know the company in Bridgend that they used? Couldn't see anything in the (very small) credits.

Just seen it. Loved it and all the better for Tim Shaw's obvious love for the Esprit.

A few adverts but worth watching. 

Barrie he is a massive Lotus fan, he is also a pretty clever chap
