amazing, you could put 5000 miles on it and it would still look like this! In fact I suggest you do!

That's the plan Jonny, just playing the patient game just now as work hasn't begun just yet. She arrived early at the workshop and wasn't planned to be there for another couple of weeks. Being patient is no fun.........but it's cheap!?

And the lock on the glove box and the padding over it. Never seen that before. Nice looking car.

Tend to see that pad & lock on the federal cars Buddsy but the ashtray location is a new one on me........so many tiny variants for so few numbers of cars. Must have been tricky to manage - without looking too hard here are 4 federal Esprits and they all have the ashtray located high on the door. I'm thinking Bauke's old Turbo was a bit unique.....

My White Esprit turbo was build for USA. but never sold there, its sold new inside the Netherlands,

it has a KM counter, but it has the side lamps on the body, maby thats a point, why the ashtrays are down?

The ashtray on mine is on the door sill. Isn't that the norm for an early dry sump G turbo?

Yup that's where you stub your JPS out in a dry sump.

It was at the Shakespeare raceway in an airfield just outside Stratford-upon-Avon. They'd just recently finished building the drag strip and there were no barriers so you could literally rock up and burn up and down.

One last trip before the winter, it will be good to get it out again in the spring.
