Hello TLF friends!

   As some of you know, I've been happily addicted to the Esprit S1 for many years.   Well . . . . I'm not sure how else to say this, therefore I'll let my previous posts do the talking:

Finally!  Just the car I was hoping for - it was worth the wait!   I'm very happy with this car.   It's a 1988 U.S. model with Citroen gearbox and Bosch injection, in what is tied for my favorite color combination (black on tan) for a Stevens Esprit -- pretty much exactly what I would have gotten if I could have ordered one new!

It needs some work, and I have numerous people (Atwell H., John D., more) to thank for their help already in beginning to diagnose its issues . . .

Also want to thank TLF member scooterbugg for a very pleasant transaction and accurate representation of the car.     :)

What can I say?   Very happy with the car, I like it a whole lot, and it's very exciting to have a Stevens Esprit after drooling over them for so long!

I'm hoping to have its running issues resolved over the next few weeks.  Also looking for a few parts  Regardless of how long and how much it takes to fix, I'm looking forward to it!   :D


Cheers,

Tony K.  :)

  Well done, glad you have finally got your  hands on one, looks like a really nice car, and as others have said the dished back wheels looks awesome,  All you have to do now is drive and enjoy   ;)

Love the color, always wish mine had been black.

Ditch the spoiler, and it will be perfect, the best one's don't have them!
