Well thats it!

My last Esprit is sold. I was going to buy an S2 or S1 with part of it but I have now decided to finish the 2 unfinished restorations I have and enjoy those.

The new owner has looked at a lot of cars,mainly S4's and GT3's and he is chuffed. My car is off to a good home .

I'm not going to disclose the price but it reflects the current market place,and he has a car with all the common S4 faults sorted recently.

Thanks to everyone who has given me advice and listened to my ramblings over the past few years.

There is an S1or 2 somewhere with my name on it,so I'll be back.

I always was more of a classic car man than a modern guy so I won't miss the S4 but I will miss having an Esprit.

Au revoir for now.

Richard :(

Rich, can you PM me how much you got for my own purposes, so I know where I stand? Mines a year or 2 older than yours.

Cheers and don't be a stranger.

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.

Hi Richard,

Glad you got what you wanted (to part with your car that is). Hope you can join us again with another Esprit someday.

Thanks for the messages.

It wasen't what I wanted but it was a sensible figure to accept.

I have already called the two places restoring my other cars and I am looking forward to having a bit of fun finishing those.

My Spitfire has Esprit v8 pistons in it and V8 injectors (modified Toyota twin cam with emerald ecu and throttle bodies),so I still have a bit of Esprit with me !!!!!

The car drove off this morning. They look fantastic driving away ,infact you forget how nice.

Even at the last minute I thought about changing my mind ,but reality is reality and I'm going to have a bit of 60's fun in the sun for a while.

The new owner has got a bargain and was chuffed.

On the down side I took a bankers draft which was fine (hes a barrister,and I 'm not daft but...) I didn't realise until the everhelpful tiller in Nat west infirmed me, that they still take 5 working days to clear.That doesn't bother me in itself as there are so many fakes about, but given that it has left his account yesterday that means Nat West have that money for 8 days...Nice.

Still onwards and upwards.

Good bye for now,
