A scissor lift and a dry garage? Sparky won't be able to cope with them.   Here's what you need do do:- Go to the local garden centre, get several bags of small-sized gravel. Spread it out on the fl

Headed out to my summer cottage today, a 417 km drive and I was hesitant whether to take the jagg or the SE since the SE has been giving me headaches the last 10 days. But.... I reasoned like this, if

Not many car communities would want to pull Sparky off to be fair...

Well, since I don't drink, that is some more beer for you, as I have mentioned earlier ;)

Eventually we can start an Esprit and give it the beans, to see, how far we can shoot an empty can with the exhaust flames, and other Olympic disciplines. I am sure, Kim or Gert will volounteer for that with their super polished cars, while I am preparing mine for something else.

More beers are just a short drive away. I plan to bring my Esprit Friday morning, and then get a ride back to Copenhagen, and bring my Corrado, beers, tools, tent etc. directly after.

 

Btw. how about a decibel tool?

 

Sparky: I have changed to gbp.

 

Cheers,

Jacques.

Leaving from work tonight (not a long journey) so if it ain't in my bag now, it ain't coming! Chris, let me know what time you're likely to be at T5. Kim, ETA 2150, Operations/ATC/weather permitting...

Fortunately you're with BA.

Ryanair just lost their definitive courtcase yesterday here in Denmark.  ;)  ;)  ;)  So, they may be hit by strike.

Right, 007, just remember the form when operating in a foreign country: Stiff upper lip, and all that. Wear the 3-piece tweed suit and tie at all times and speak in a posh accent. You'll need to drop that infernal Watford dialect and inflexion if you're to succeed in your mission. Make sure your brogues are immaculately polished, too. Be careful of the locals trying to bribe you with beer, they can be a proper nuisance. Naturally MI6 will deny all knowledge of your mission ever taking place. Good luck, we'll smoke you a kipper for when you get back. Toddle pip old bean.

I wonder if the Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini clubs / forums etc have belt fests? The concept is great and somewhere in the back of my mind I kind of hope that it is only Lotus people who do this. Not that I begrudge (google translate, hope it is the right word) the other super car fanatics the concept, it is more a feeling of choosing the right make. Along the lines, right car- right people.

Been pampering my SE the afternoon and evening, fixed the bad breather hose replacement (1" hose changed for the right size). Noticed when I had the 1/4 panels removed that there was no "Ram" air intake, fixed that too, so my knuckles are torn and bloody already in anticipation of the coming weekend. Is there ONE thing on the Esprit you can unscrew/change without bending over backwards (litteraly) or cutting yourself?   :)
