Not a piece left untouched. "Kragenized" interior complete with cheap seat covers and shift boot, funny switches on the dash along with pedals that became familiar after I stared at them for a minute. Yellow is my favorite Esprit color, but I don't know about this. Truth be told it looks like it wouldn't be too hard to get the car looking decent after a bit of yellow paint was applied and a bit more removed. Hopefully the previous owner payed equal, more useful attention to the engine etc.

EDIT: Wait... is all that screwy piping NOS? crazy... <_<

When I called the owner (no I didn't like the color, but figured a few things could be fixed for the right price)

He has owned it for 4 years and has no idea when the timing belt was changed.

It has some oil leaks fixed when he bought it.

Needs 4 new tires and he said and I quote "I think the front rims a warped, because it has a bad shimmy"

The Headlight motors where recently changed

The throttle cable has been changed and all the oil lines are new in the engine bay.

He did the paint job and wing himself.

The interior needs redone, that is why it has seat covers.

He said his reserve is $19,900 USD... I almost dropped the phone.... <_<

Who know, they say there is a sucker born every minute.... maybe someone out there like this look.... :blink: or maybe not.

Found my Esprit, but due to family issues, money went to other things :(

I guess I just have to wait for a while.

Looks like a teenager got loose with a can of black paint and stole a wing off a Honda Civic.....Doesn't look like it's got NOS, just some stainless steel hoses. That thing is HIDEOUS! Please don't think all "Yanks" Tunerize their Esprit's like "Sir Lose a Lot"! Poor Soul!

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god.

~William Shakespeare

PS please note my dripping sarcasm :D
