I hoped I'd never see the day....

So...several months into the sale campaign and I still have my car!

I have been using it as a daily for the past few days as the Landy failed the MOT and I have put a fair few unnecessary extra miles in just for the fun of it and I am reminded of 2 things.


1. just how great my car is

2. I am properly sad about having to sell it.


I know it sounds daft almost getting emotional over a car when all common sense says "get rid!!" But there it is. A spell of dryness and sunshine in Devon, an open road and quite simply one of the most engaging drives I have ever owned.

This is my third Esprit and when the previous 2 have gone I have not felt the same sense of losing a friend as with this one....maybe its cos of how much I have spent on it, but if anyone could give me this weeks winning lottery numbers it would really help

I am now an EX Esprit owner again....and properly sad.


The new owner Keith is a nice guy and I have pointed him this way so if you see "my car" pop up again he has promised to look after it.
