Pics of your car in noteworthy places


Recommended Posts

I thought it would make for another excuse to post delicious Esprit pics if the topic were different. If the excuse is weak, well let the thread die a quick death, but if not, I look forward to some more pics of wonderful cars in interesting places. If I may, I'll post some non Esprit (since I've yet to acquire mine.....) pics with examples of places I am proud to have taken my car.....

On the circuit at Silverstone:

At the Coventry factory where this car was made:

On the old Brooklands Circuit:

Pictured outside Wentworth Golf club. (when I first got the car in 2002. Note the old Oz wheels). That's my Dad in the passenger's seat!

And outside Warfield House at a SELOC meeting a few years ago. That's Paul C's fine looking SE and Jez's BRG S4s.

A couple of new shots, first in front of Henie-Onstad Centre of Arts at Hovik just outside Oslo. Founded by the 1930s Hollywood skating diva Sonia Henie and ship-owner Niels Onstad in 1968 - I visited the place for the first time with my Aunt back in August 1969. I was 12 years old. Almost deserted, we stood in the reception and suddenly Sonia Henie herself walked past, going in to her office. My aunt, pushy as she was, asked the receptionist if it was possible to pop in and say hello and yes, Sonia accepted us. I will never forget her getting up from her desk to shake our hands. An over-made-up, wrinkled and weathered face with a gutted, out-smoked gravel voice the once glamourous and world-famous movie star and olympic champion looked incredibly old - and thin as a twig. We got her autograph and left. Just 2 months later she died of cancer. She was only 57. For many years I thought her autograph would be worth thousands! Checking e-bay when that evolved I was disappointed. Only a few hundred dollars....

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.

Despite my best efforts, my two mistresses finally meet at Brooklands Museum (not the Merc; that was just a fling).

This one isn't as good as what I've been seeing but it has a little history. The Western Models Essex Esprit is in front of a pic of me sitting in one in the paddock of the 1980 LeMans, and 1980 is THE year of the Essex Esprit, so this was a pretty exciting moment for me, LeMans and this awesome Esprit.

I know, a person had to be there......makes a good backdrop for the model though....
