No pics of our 'excursions', I hope...

Lovely

We used to live on Bulls Hill, Walford, just outside Ross. I loved to drive down to Tintern and back.

@Bazza 907 we live in Hom Green and all our kids went to Walford primary, small world! Haven't done the Tintern drive yet, been meaning to. It's such a lovely road down there and on to Chepstow. Think I might come back Trelleck way.

But this russian one is the most funny, when he discovers that an old Lotus Esprit can do wonders when driven, not just on a thick carpet behind glass and golden strings:

 

Uvidimsya na Lotus entuziastov!

I used to own ULO658R - imagine my surprise when watching Alan Partridge earlier this year!
 

I didn’t know it had made its way back here from Jeff in the US...

Aha - I bet you regret selling that? I presume you've seen it here... http://www.coachtrimmer.co.uk/ourwork-Esprit.aspx

Jeff must have spent £80k on it all in but then sold it a few years later. He owns the Lamborghini Countach from the film The Cannonball Run so I would imagine it didn't live up to it in the speed stakes?

I regret selling nearly every car I’ve ever owned Paul! 

But you are correct this one is particularly irritating these days...I have remedied the situation with the Panther and now the white Turbo, 😉 so things aren’t all bad! 🤔

Feels like there must already be a thread on here for “if only I’d kept that til now I’d be ££££££s better off”????

another example here, to keep on topic...

We all have Esprit sale regrets but that S1 is in a magic colour and has the Centre Ash tray....😎😁

I would like to see some pics of the countach ? My favourite car of all time!

Dave :)

There are plenty of pages with Jeff's Countach e.g. https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/lamborghini-countach-lp5000s-cannonball-run-by-auto-italia-2010.350857/

This one is the definition of more money than sense though... https://www.complex.com/sports/2013/02/this-millionaire-hung-a-lamborghini-countach-on-his-wall
