Aussie map with Esprit Locations

Recommended Posts

Just trying to get ideas together and thought it would be good to have a map of Oz with all our general locations on it, just so we can have some idea of where we all fit in the Oz picture. Simple pic like the one below and I'll update with owners general location once you agree to be added to the map.

There is at least one other nearby then. And there I was fearing I was all alone...

You are quite right Sir - it is my laptop. When the pic reduces, the S2 turns into '82' :)

Keep up the beers - it will all make sense!

Great map.

Iain :D

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

re: sticking us all in Brissy :(

Solution : B) :blush:

Make Queensland bigger than the rest of OZ

In reality it could be true..... as More New South Welshmen and Mexicans, move to QLD each month ,than any other state in OZ ...plus all in O/S imports ..

Hi Alex,

I hope conversation was a good one :sweat:

Stunning photo by the way. I've only seen one other Gcar in the flesh, that was a S1 in Kryptonite green with a Skyline motor in it. I think the guy races it regularly at Morgan Park Raceway.

Would love to have a side by side car shot one day, or perhaps come along to a club run or organised show. As I am outnumbered by Elise's and Wade's S4 Esprit (not that there is anything wrong with any of those car's)

Anyhow, let us know if you would like to get together.

Cheers, Graeme.

Yes that would be correct!

The Lotus Bar was in its infancy but functional none the less.

My baby was without exhaust as the clutch had grenaded at 190kph... (don't ask)...

Well the clutch has been since removed and replaced and is nearing completion.

Today i plan to replace drive shafts, fit discs and calipers and refit exhaust.

From there i will only have the minor tasks of electrics and boot + adjustments before its first run down our driveway since we moved here 2 years ago!

( anybody with spare time and an eagerness to learn the workings of an 88 turbo welcome to join the fun - free beer on tap!).

After that i will start the new task of removing the status of "Australia's Untidiest Workshop" and open the Lotus Bar for business.

The new year should see all of us locals embarking on Brisvegas' first "Esprit Hoon"

There are a lot of ranges just south of Brisbane in the Gold Coast Hinterland and an early morning hoon followed up by Breakfast with a view at somewhere like Sirromet winery would be just the ticket I would think.

Who is up for some of that or similar? ( suggestions)...

Until then - Merry Christmas to all

Justin
