Love road tripping, it's roads like this that make the cost worth it!

If you're talking about Mark Blanchard then I think he has the best looking S car I've ever seen :huh:

If you're talking about Britten Mark, then I have to say that orange is still the best looking color on any car <_<

Hi All,

Sorry for the stupid question but how do you get the pictures into your posts? Is it using the "Add this attachment" button?

Try using an image hosting site. You download to them then copy the link to your message on the treads. :lol:

Took a little getting use to but simple once you lean the basics.

Have Fun :o

Thanks for the help Troy and Cliff,

I think I've got the hang of it now so here are some pics of my car. I don't have any of the pretty type handy so I thought you might like to see some of the car being resprayed and tarted up as happened recently. I hope you like them...

Getting the old peeling paint off...

Hmmm... Hi Shah, Hey Gonzalo... and other Espritophiles. One more US Esprit. 2003.5 Final Edition V8. Yellow with black interior. The last Esprit imported to the US, according to Customs records. Not the last built, though, according to Lotus records (that would be Denis' car - also yellow).

As requested by Shah...

NOTE: I KNOW... those wheels are HORRIBLE BUT original ones are being reconditioned and will be back on the car next week. This is a first owner example (88 year-old LADY!!!), with original 47'000 km on the clock, and full history from the first day. Original wheels had been taken out as well as the 2 spoke steering wheel when new. The wheels had been stored and they need some correction to go "round". The rest is all original down to the last screw with NO wear anywhere. I was not willing to buy another Esprit, but sometimes, there are example you DO NOT HAVE TO miss.

newer pictures available... see page 9

Yes they're those horrible Gotti's... often seen on Alpine A310s.

Looking forward to have the original wheels on the car as fast as possible.
