Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have opened a new account after being away for a few years and I couldnt remembeer my old one!

I have been very fortunate to own 5 Esprits in my time and 1 Excel.....

My Interest started in 1975 when my uncle then owned the Lotus main dealer in Ipswich and my mum had a new Elite in metallic purple, with almost white interior! I was only 10 but it wasstill a squeeeze in the back and I was never forgiven for getting mud off my rugby kit on the new seats..

Move on to 2001 and after a series of porsches and stopping motorsport I bought my first Esprit. Over the next 7 years or so I had;

87 G shape in black - 20th from last made

86 Turbo in white - Gorgeous

86 G shape in Metallic blue mated to a GT3 chassis and engine - It drove but needed work!

Sport 350 Nr32 - Rebuilt after accident inc £1700 exhaust! - Sold too cheap, blown up at the ring by next owner and rebuilt again by Mike S and sold to a chap in Germany.

94 S4 ltd edition to commerate the BritishGT Championship - Blown up by next owner.

In 2008 my business went down , and since then I have just managed to keep my home and life afloat.

Fast forward 2012 and I have just got to a stage where there is a light and disposable income on the horizon.

Of all the love and especially hate relationships I had with my Esprits , they were the best cars I have owned. Ive been looking at Nobles but they are not the same.

So whilst I am here to reacquaint myself , as I left because I couldnt handle not owning one , I am also here because I want to buy another.

I am in no rush and will wait for either a Sport 350 , 300, 94 British GT commerorative or cheap V8 that I can modify.

Anyway Hello again

Richard :cheers:

Hi Richard.

Well, this year I plan to get the blue one back on the road (it came off the road at the start of winter 18m ago for a slipping clutch).

Since the Excel passed to you I've had a Green one (sacrapped), a Ssilk red one (still in use) a champagne gold one (replacement exhaust to be fitted before I start using it). You'd think I almost wish I'd not got rid of that red one to you.

Good to see you back.

Andy
