Esprit Picture & Video Thread

Recommended Posts

I've watched all his Video's multiple times over! Pretty much my ideal situation right there - lovely Cotswold farm and a barn full of crackers! For those that don't know Harry founded EVO magazine........a proper pertrolhead.

@mike_sekinger > well as I watched it I suspected a few guys in the video could be from here and apparently I wasn't wrong! ;)

As a long time fan of Harry's Garage and an EVO subscriber since Day 1, he has been at the top of may Petrolhead Superhero list for a long time (Henry Catchpole is a close second). I doubt his crown will ever be taken. This has been on my wish list since about 1978, when it would have be in my dream alongside the Esprit. I'm almost there, having owned a 1992 Zephyr 1100 for the past 15 years, along with the current V8. I have started perusing the classifieds since Harry announced its arrival . Better get one soon before I'm to old old and feeble to hold the damn thing up.

Great to see your car out again Geert! Having been a passenger once, I fondly remember the cornering during your neigbourhood blasts. A tribute to both your Esprit and yourself. 😉

When walking up to my SE yesterday, in the otherwise empty industrial estate, I too was reminded of the dramatic shape. Looking fast and purposeful, even when parked. 😎

I should have taken a picture... And I had just driven a (small) tractor, so everything seemed fast, even walking. 😄

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Car looking in unbelievable shape Barry, testament to your maintenance and to a lesser degree your photography skills.  Looks like it’s just rolled off the factory line

 Barrie, did you have the white lettering pen out pre blast ? the Goodyear lettering looks very white, presuming it's not the stick on lettering ? Anyway it looks very nice. Steve T

@Bazza 907 that side profile is exquisite.

Were you tempted for at least a split second to line up the Goodyear lettering at the top on the front wheel - like on the press shots?

Unfortunately that would be me.  🥴
