My VIN is SCCFC20A8JHF62190

It's a 1988 Lotus Esprit Turbo.... My registration states that it is an SE... but it doesn't have a chargecooler. Every number on my car matches.

And... .I'm in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada.. The car has 60,000 miles on it and is originally from California.

Modifying esprit's.. now that's fun..

PS... I AM NOT A CERTIFIED MECHANIC.. I Have chosen to help those in need, in the past and must not be construed as being a certified technician.

Definitely not an SE. Registrations are often wrong...

Here are the vin #'s and model breakdown

I know it's not an SE... by normal definition.. but it would seem that all the 1988 North American Market cars are called SE's for some reason... We, unlike the UK, get the bloody citroen box and bosch injection in 1988...

Found my V5 at last (after 'er-indoors cleared up). My white S1 is 76090129G. That puts me 3rd in the list at the moment :)

I'm in Bedford, UK.

SCCFC20A6KHF65090 1989 Esprit Turbo SE Vulcangrey (Travis), Colorado, USA

not

SCCFC20A7KHF65090 1989 Esprit Turbo SE Vulcangrey (Travis), Colorado, USA

My check digit is different than Carl's 5034 S/N. I had assumed it would be the same.
