Great noise.


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I received this pm via Pistonheads (from a chap I've never spoken to before) in my inbox, after spending the Sunday morning mixing with the posh cars at Goodwood Breakfast Club. Some say it's antisocial, some say it's devaluing the car.

I say YEAH! :D:blush:

"Hi Graham,

Having just explained to my 7yr old and his friend that Lotus(s) don't make a very good noise (only 4 cylinders and turbos etc) they saw and heard YOU leaving Goodwood on Sunday. Suffice to say you were the exception that proved the rule and they were very impressed with your noise through the tunnel - you made two little lads very happy!

Regards,

/name/"

This points out one of the Esprit's great weaknesses - it is one of the world's worst cars for sneaking up on someone.

Exactly so. And also why convergent evolution has made it appear to be a Ferrari to the clueless masses.

(But if you're looking for some really poor sneakers, I have some relics from the 70's still hiding in my closet corner, cowering in fear of callup to yard duty.)

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

You may keep your poor sneakers, sir.

Although it does remind me that somewhere in the garage I am marinating a bag of hockey gear that has been sitting since my knee gave out. But that is only three years so it is yet young.
