Good Lotus shop in the Northeast US?

Recommended Posts

Some of you may know about my Esprit project that has been going on for about 1 1/2 years now. Basically I have her together, but not running well and I can't for the life of me figure out why. I have spent the last 7 months trouble shooting the engine and have not gotten anywhere. So I am throwing in the towel and am going to take it to a pro to get looked at. My question is does anyone know of a shop capable of working on modified Esprits in the Northeast United States? I tried John at WC Engineering, but he can't take the car until June/July!!! I have tried my local dealer, but they are useless when it comes to the Esprit. Finally, I called RS Motorsports and they refuse to work on modified Esprits :D Anyone know of a good shop?

I know Michael Fridmann very well, as he services my Esprit. Michael is very knowledgeable about Lotuses...As well his racing V8 (he served as a mechanic on the Rapier Racing team that was using V8s), he's always got a few Esprits, V8's and Elises at his shop. He's currently got a gorgeous S1 that in for repair. He does everything from rebuilding engines/transmissions to race modifications. You won't find anyone more knowledgeable on the east coast.

Excellent! I found a guy down in MD named Don Butler who has been dealing with these cars for awhile. I am going to try him first simply because he is willing to drive up to my house and work on the car in my garage so I don't need to tow it! I will keep you posted. He came highly recommended by Ray from RD Enterprises. However, this Michael Fridmann will be getting a vist if Don and I can't get her running!

Cheers,

Graham

Sorry I just came across ths post. I keep forgettin about the USA section of this site. The mechanic I use is Mike Burke at Burkes Automotive in Eddystone PA. I have used hm for the past 5 years and he is very knowledgable about Esprits. He is the only person I will allow to work on my car. His number is 610 872 5760.

Hope that helps!

+1 on this recommendation. Mike just installed a set of straight exhaust pipes for me. Nice work.
