Hello all!


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm Steve, from Aberdeen. I don't own a Lotus yet, but am on the lookout for an Esprit as a project. I've always wanted one since seeing the white S1 in The Spy Who Loved Me as a kid!

So far I've run Mk1 and Mk2 MR2s, and more recently a Porsche Boxster. I'm now running an IS200 Sport for commuting but hope to find a half decent Esprit to restore in my spare time.

Cheers, Steve

Hi Steve,

Welcome from from of the Scottish contingent. Sounds like a very familiar story you have! We are having a drive out up your way (well as near as we have been so far) next Sunday as it happens and a Lotus is not a prerequisite to come out and meet us. They are good driving roads whatever the car. It can be found in the Scottish section of the Regional Groups here

I am also sure that Brian King (Bingoking) will soon add his welcome to mine and add your details to the Scottish listings of members which is up at 50+ willing to be visible on this forum.

Look forward to meeting you sometime. Cheers,

Hi Steve...Welcome to the forum.

As Al mentioned we are having a gathering this weekend and there will be at least 4 Esprit owners there so why not pop along and say hello in person.

I will add your details to the database.

Many thanks for the warm welcome folks! :thumbsup:

Thanks for sorting out my post Bibs, I didn't realise that I'd posted in someone else's thread.. oops.

Al & bingoking, cheers for the invite to the upcoming meet - unfortunately I won't be able to make it on this occasion but look forward to meeting you and other forum members in the near future.

The car on ebay looks not bad, I've got it in my watched list at the moment. I've also been in touch of the owner of this one:

It needs a paint job and the interior sorted - anything else I should be checking given the age & mileage? Apparently the engine was rebuilt at 63K but that was back in 1994.

I'm not rushing into anything though - I may hang on until my budget has grown and look for a Turbo. We'll see!
