That's the plan. Going on two years now. Luckily I am short enough to fit the car. See attached photo.

 

Now I need parts, desperately. I need California specific parts. Guess which ones?

1990 Lotus Esprit SE. In fact I've had my eyes, feet, knuckles and wallet on one for several weeks. It's been a two year project so far though.

Hmmm project..... Sounding painful......

Is it emissions based stuff you need ? Most of it ends up in the skip over in the uk

Just to clarify, the car runs well enough. The steering bits are a bit knackered. The paint job is not too horrid. (Monaco White.mostly)

It will be awhile before I can go for a piss up (visit too the Pub) in the lotus.

 

Note: I translated my reply to something that almost completely does not resemble proper King's English for you guys across The Pond.

 

I love using words like 'whilst' and 'saloon' and 'bollucks' in everyday conversations now (picked up ages ago from the Jaguar club)

 

However, a car repair guide used the word 'swarf'. I was at a loss on this term. Had to give it a bit of a look up on Merriam-Webster's site. Horses for courses I suppose.

Thank you for the grand welcome Kimbers! I'm trying to keep my hands clean as well. But the Lotus calls, and I will answer with vigor.

 

Happy motoring, and.....GO MANCs!

Hi Ramjet,

 

I would prefer it only one way; the way God & Peter Stevens intended the Lotus to be. Unfortunately our emissions restrictions here have stacked the deck.

That's a pity. I had one as well, but once I had thought about it and our cars do not get inspected constantly, I gutted the valve of butterfly and shaft, blocked the vacuum line and then reinstalled the valve so it looks original. Never had an issue with it since.

I met a really nice ex-Londoner fellow at work this week. He said that he sometimes misspells 'bollocks' as well. In conversing with him I also mixed up the city that uses the term 'Scouser'. I thought perhaps it was Manchester?

 

My new Londoner mate quickly corrected my knowledge on the differences between Liverpool and Manchester folks.  :laser:
