It was mentioned at the start of the thread but with no picture so here's one of my Essex Esprit.  

I’ve had three over the years.

1995 Esprit I own, is the last S4s ever imported to USA.

I bought GFM 100G  to put on the S1.......

 

GFM: Gordon Frank Masson

100G: Chassis Number

 

Well pleased, I came on here and everyone said "you cant change the original plate that was on the car for the press pictures"

I conceded that they were right so it went on the GT3 and LFU 972R stayed on the S1.

I parked next to a Lotus Carlton at Donnington when I first bought my S2. It had the plate B33AST (BEAST) I think, which was appropriate. I'll try and dig out the photo at some point.

My first Esprit had an "ooohhh errrr missus" registration which caused wry amusement when I bought it.

 

It then summed up my own feelings when I wrote it off on black ice back in 2008  :huh:

First time I've seen that car Mark. Heard the story only. Did you see my will it polish out post in general lotus motoring section. Do you have a habit of bad parking

I'd vote for MR 10TUS myself or even Bingokings FI 10TUS though.

When I first went to MMC for the first Evora with OO07 ALN they double checked it was for a Lotus and not one of their Aston's. I'll maybe have to aspire to one sometime! It would have been [email protected] on a Porker if I'd stayed with them!!

I did think about polishing it out Al, seriously. But then walked round to the nearside...

 

Shipped it to Hethel. Body shell was almost completely detached. Parts alone (no VAT, paint or labour) - £27,000 ish. Plus the chassis needed straightening. But it did its job - no damage to me whatsoever.

I've just seen S2 XGE on a Yellow one. Looked great, and let me know what the car was :thumbsup:

That's Nick Nunn, he's not to be trifled with! I think he spent the last few years as paid security in Afghanistan, he just seemed to be permanently caked in guns!

I honestly looked at it and the first thing that sprung to mind was SPINCTER.... SPYNHTR...?

Bummer hey! Sorry...... Just had a good 'ring' to it :hrhr:
