Penelope is with Ralph at RS Motorsports in Closter NJ getting a level C and some other odds and ends sorted out including the life giving timing belt.

I have this fear of that thing. It can be an Angel or The Devil. Breathing life or taking it away. I am so forward to getting her back with the carbs in perfect harmony. 

First time she has been serviced by a G car pro in over 15 years.  I cant wait for her to come home

You've done a great job on the interior, it looks lovely. I bet you are looking forward to stretching Penelope's legs when she returns (not a euphemism).

:) 


It's getting there......

Getting in tune with the straight and narrow
Yeah, I'm getting in tune with the straight and narrow
I'm singing this exhaust note 'cause it fits in well
With the way I'm feeling
There's a symphony that I hear in your heart
Sets my head a-reeling

But I'm in tune
Right in tune
I'm in tune
And I'm gonna tune

Right in on you (right in on you)
Right in on you (right in on you)
Right in on you

 

Thank you WHO

Cant wait for my drive about with Penelope

looking great Jenna !   Question - are those rear side indicator lights standard ?  Don't have them on mine?

Hey Jenna,

I just wanted to tell you that I love that you named your Esprit "Penelope".  My 1971 Norton Commando that I owned for 25 years was named Penelope. Very traditional English Girls name.  I now have a 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo and I certainly couldn't give Her the same name as my beloved Norton Commando. So my Girlfriend and I decided to name Her Betsy. Your Giugiaro styled Esprit Looks Amazing! I really wanted the body style that you have when i started looking for an Esprit. It just so happened I couldn't find a decent example in Northern California at the time. So I opted for the 1989 I got from a Doctor who blew the Turbo and parked it. I am very happy with it, I do dream of having a Giugiaro body style Esprit some day, if the opportunity ever presents itself I would be all over it. .
