Esprits for sale on Pistonheads

Hi,

Just been over to Pistonheads to check out what Esprits are for sale. I've never seen the page so full before, in all the time I was looking for one over the three years before I bought one back in May 2007 you would get perhaps a maximum of a dozen on the page, there are over 60 cars for sale or been sold!

Is this because of the credit crunch, or people cashing in as a good classic buy or just people moving to another make of car? I wish I was looking now, I'd be like a kid in a sweet shop! :)

Owen

Still seems a lot for sale. My guess is end of summer, so sell the sports car, combined with the credit crunch. And looks like the dealers aren't shifting their stock. Nutley's had that GT3 for ages (over priced) and a lot of old stock at UK Sports cars.

Nice looking GT3 for

Paul, you're obviously not drinking enough! :)

I can always say one good thing about UK Sportscars - they do the're best at keeping Esprit residuals where we want them.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Speaking of Esprits for sale, check out page 182 (I think) of the October issue of the duPont Registry (I've never actually purchased the mag, as by the time I've completed perusing its pages, they are too drenched with drool to bring to the checkout counter and keep a straight face--and in any case if Barnes and Noble didn't want its patrons to indulge in "freebie" reading, why else would they provide so many comfy chairs? And I can never seem to exit the store without buying a passel of books, so their marketing strategy actually works!). Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, the page layout muppets (who, in a publication of this caliber should know better) have managed to confuse the Elise and the Esprit, having put the wrong photo to the respective vehicle description. I suppose I shouldn't be completely surprised at their lack of Lotus acumen, as (near as I can determine) it was the only Esprit for sale in the entire magazine. The bright side is that the "exclusivity" of our chosen rides is confirmed once again. B)

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.
