Hi Hippo,

Ignore the "only recently become an owner of an Esprit because I've been driving Hondas for so long" person, minis are cool. Especially since they can normally travel along roads Esprits struggle with (anything on the surface other than tarmac).

Helcome Hippo/Ian - (Is it my imagination or do we have alot of Ians on LEF?)

Esprit and Mini owner, also called Ian - we should start our own thread! The JC Works Mini is a beast!

Welcome. Get some pics up when you can.

Ian

minis are cool.

Get a pair of Glasses Andy! B) Mini's USED to be cool. They're now recognised as built by BMW which instantly makes the UNCOOL!!

Anyway, did I say welcome Ian? :devil:

Yep I can believe it. I was told this by a customer just this week as he traded it in for a Civic.

"Oh I'm sorry did you want wheels?" :devil:

Welcome to the forum, nice Esprit...

sorry but I am with Kimbers on the small BMW, its not a Mi.... sorry cant bring myself to say the word

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Aha, I have a chum in Hebburn, also here is a pic of Pete Sabatinelli's old yellow GT3 and mine from 2003. Unfortunately he sold it soon after, I believe it is still owned by someone on this forum. I'm in Durham BTW.

In the garage no-one can hear you scream
