Hey everyone, Here are some pictures of my Esprit from tonights classic car meet in Earls Barton Northampton... was great to see a couple of other lovely Esprits too, Robington's black one and Pa

Their holding up really well. I havent really touched them yet since they were polished last year. (apart from cleaning off the usual road grime, brake dust etc) They still have their mirror finish. Lovely!

However I havent done that much driving this year, what with redoing the dash, heater motors etc etc then Covid on top of everything. Im also fussy about taking it out in the wet. (although I did say that I wasnt going to let that bother me).

Im trying to get as many miles on the clock as possible at the moment, and also trying to trace the oil leak.

Its ok, trundling round town and short, not over speedy trips. Only happens when I put my foot down on the motorway say and at a constant 70. However I WILL find it!

Posing up and down Blackpool promenade get loads of thumbs up and nice comments. Good job they can't see underneath!

Thanks Steve, always good info. What do you mean by the = 10953 ?

1980 domestic production FYEO spec cars, 10928 white heat, 10953 and 10954. 

There was one RHD export to Hong Kong 10939 white/brown.

Surely, Sparky didn’t clean his Esprit, did he?

Every September, whether it needs it or not.

And someone parked a filthy V8 outside mine today.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Reference to 10953 being the same spec as 1980 FYEO (turbo dry sump) SCCFC20A1AHD10930, engine no. CD910800718630.

Thanks Steve, yes of course Steve, For a second there I forgot 10930 what an ex-white press car before it was copper.
