For those that didn't spot - the Volvo Essex truck pic was taken at Ketteringham Hall.

Wasn't sure what it was but the Vosa site reveals Martyn's Essex one is actually a Leyland Leopard and appears to be still registered though is now in JPS colours - is it part Clive's setup anyone know?

As far as I know the JAH1L, was restored by Simon Hatfield and he still owns it.

By the way...its seats came from a Lotus Europa Special

Missing opportunity to recreate the iconic Esprit one into a Elise...

I think it looks good. I've said it before and I'll say it again - nearly every period magazine I have read that references David Thieme and the Essex colour scheme always call it 'Garish.' Its a label that stuck. Yes he may have looked a bit like a Bond Villain and wore dodgy hats and sunglasses but the man had taste and I still think the colours look superb - run a very close second only to the JPS liveries to me in the all-time best (in fact there I days i think it looks better still!)

Sure this was at the Club Lotus Donnington Show, can't remember what year, early 90's ?
