Isn't this just a transient problem Mike? We're having an exceptional summer. Even in Devon it's usually raining or cold... Give the dog a shave for a few weeks.

Mike, it's great you're even considering selling a car just because of your dog. I wish all people would care so much about there pets.

But on the other hand, don't sell it! You've spent so much time and effort getting the Esprit on the road again, you deserve to enjoy it as well! As said, the heat will pass, solutions will be found. Can't you take the roof panel out? Really don't want to see you sell another Esprit and regret it... For what it's worth, my better halve has a cairn terrier, and he much prefers rides in the Esprit to the Range Rover. Because it's easier to hop into and he has a better view of the road and surrounding because of the low dash. In fact, he was the first of the family to take a seat in the Excel when I just got it. ;)

Greetz,

Filip

I always loved my Triumph Stag, it was a perfect second car next to the Esprit. On hot days like these, the Elan +2 doesn't really feel like an upgrade...
