Hi Bob,

I made the avatar using Photoshop CS on a picture of my S4s.

I have been using Photoshop for more than 15 years - since the first version came out (they are now on version 9). It is my favorite software and IMHO one of the best written pieces of code ever.

BTW: It's "Esprit" FactFile, not "Elise" Fact File ;)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Oops, so used to typing Elise.

No offence meant, although Troys comment was funny.

Nice big avatar piccy, can I pinch it a minute to wind up my Elise MLOC.net pals ?

I've popped it up as a Proton S3 Elise - please dont hit me :D

Phonse_Esprit.bmpA friend with a nice digi camera and a lot more photo shop skills then I took this photo of my 89 during a recent track day event. It may not be high on the arty-fartsy scale but I thought it was pretty neat. Hope it comes out viewable

Okay, so how does one make it viewable in the post?

That's fine, it can be viewed ok if you just click on it, however if you want it to show in the actual post you need to upload it using the add attachment function, then once uploaded click on 'add into post' next to your newly uploaded attachment :D

Here's a larger version of my "slammed" Micro-Machines Esprit S4s:

Interior room seems tight and it is a little to orange for my taste. Would look good in Norfolk Mustard though. :P

Is that Ozzie Osbournes house? Were you visiting him? :D

Funny you should say that - I have met him many years ago when I worked for the company that made the amplifiers for Black Sabbath. They came into the factory while on tour.

But that was many years ago :)

Great photos here.

Paul C. I really, really like your car.

Along with the Esprit reality reflected in the above drawing, the other question I like to get (not) is "how many cylinders does it have?". I have been so tempted to tell people it has a transverse V-12.

Some great pics, but being a bit controversial, can I say very few seem to capture the 'Spirt of the Esprit.' :angry:

So here is my mine. Obviously I didnt want to buck the trend, so after 2 minutes in crappy Mircosoft Photo Editor here is my offering. :lol:
