How I miss my ESPRIT


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

i sold my G Esprit two years ago to a really good fellow in the U.K. 

I have been off the forum for a while but came on quietly to see how things are and it hit me ...I really miss this car , heaven knows why but I just do .

i have had some involvement with the building of another iconic car , GT40 in once again another derivative of this vehicle however it is not my cup of tea ..the Esprit continues to impress .

I think the real answer is a car that looks the same on a different platform , something modern ..

hell I have missed it .

Don't say that. I have to sell mine. :( 

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I'll know in a week if mine has moved on to a happy new owner.  Haven't driven the car in 6 months.  Been too busy at work to think about it. I think I'll start to miss my Esprit once the Spring days arrive.

My V8 is going to a new home on Monday/Tuesday next week and likely my SE will be doing the same shortly. I feel your pain guys.

This is the first post I've made in a while! But the title of this post just resonated with me - I so feel your pain and I regularly dream about both my Esprits that I sold over 20 years ago, each time believing that I still own them and they've been tucked away in a garage all these years. And then I wake up. Don't sell them guys!!! And if it's too late, then enjoy other people's vicariously as I do, by getting down to the Lotus meets (though I haven't been for Donkeys, shamefully)! xx
