This time last Friday waiting for a tow truck between 8 and 9 on the M20. Broken fan belt caused by a nut that had come loose on the power steering pump and got caught up in it!! Happily car now back and where it belongs. Luckily no other damage. Also had the A service completed whilst it was off the road and it flew through the MOT. Being told that your car is a very nice example and drives beautifully is always a bonus.

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

It did get a bit cloudy after an hour and a half! But to be honest it was a relatively painless experience. Clearly worth having breakdown cover :) and a Lotus specialist that was there to receive the car at 6 o'clock and actually rung ME To say all done!!

Sounds like I had s lucky escape. Could well have been nasty.

Never nice being sat on the hard shoulder but even worse in a esprit. Even worse in a bright yellow one!

Glad it's all sorted.

Really good to see u using it too!

I use it as much as I can weather permitting!

I have had comments recently from "how long have you had your Lamborghini ?" To " that's a nice Ferrari!"

Unfortuneatly you have to correct them even though it can sound a bit patronising.

Haven't seen another Esprit locally for ages :(

Stopped to offer assistance to a guy in a broken down F355 today on the A20. They're all prone to the odd hissy fit!

I went through Beartsed a few weeks back. There was a boy with his Mum. He was only about 10 or so. She pointed at the car and as I drove past I heard him say "An Esprit" I found that quite amusing. That was me many many years ago!! :)
