Bravo! Forum Members Restore ill Friend’s Lotus Esprit!

| |
What a magnificent heart-warming story; Simon Pritchard, a 36-year-old car enthusiast from Abergavenny UK and a member of the Lotus Esprit online forum website was in the process of rebuilding his 25-year-old Esprit when he suffered a stroke. While he was recuperating in the hospital, his fellow forum-members took it upon themselves donating money and time to complete the restoration in just five weeks without him knowing anything! You can just imagine his surprise when he left the hospital and saw the completely restored Esprit!

What makes this story even more special is the fact that Simon has been suffering from several illnesses including Reiter's Syndrome (a form of arthritis that develops as a reaction to infections in the body) and lung complaint. Despite his health problems, Simon has tried to live a normal life and among other things, he spent his time restoring the classic 1982 Lotus Esprit. His online quest for help led him to the Lotus Esprit online forum, the members of which, proved to be a lot more helpful than he or for that matter, anyone, would have bargained for.
