Hi everyone.

My name is Dave from Hertfordshire. I currently own a Nissan Skyline and im trying to find myself a nice 89/90 esprit turbo. I've wanted one of these cars forever and finally i think im ready for ownership. They seem a little thin on the ground atm, there has been a few on pistonheads but hopefully you guys might be able to point me to a good place to start looking.

Thanks for the replys. I've been looking on LEW for a few days and everthing that is within my price range is red and i really don't want a red esprit. Ive been thinking about this one but its also advertised on LEW with 127000 miles on it. Seems a bit strange, i've emailed the seller and all he says is its had a new engine at 50000 but its done 70000.

But they do get mistaken for Ferrari's all the time!

Nononono.....The blue ones are definately slower. Blue and black are just slower colours than Red and Yellow!

As for being mistaken for a Ferrari, a punch on the nose usually stops that mistake! <_<

Green esprits are the quickest and green is the fastest colour,, thats why they chose it for racing <_<

Welcome to the madhouse Dave, load of freindly faces on here that can help you search for that dream esprit. I wish our esprits had an onboard G meter like the skylines. Always fancied a skyline as a toy. Join some of the guys on a hoon you would be most welcome.

This comment won't inflame the situation further, I am sure - after all, you started it! <_<

Hey Dave, Welcome to the Forum.

Personally, I would try to find one with lower miles. It's not just the engine, it's all of the wear items that may eventually need attention. It may take you a little time, but they are out there. If it's been well maintained and cared for, high miles are not too big of a deal. But the history and care of some of these may be a little difficult to trace.

A little more money on this end may save you hundreds or thousands down the road.

Just my 2 cents . . .

Best wishes.

Ed
