The Esprit

Sunday October 27, 2002 3:42 a.m.

Won the bidding on 1991 Lotus Esprit SE Turbo

The very first thing I ever bought on ebay.

Holloween 2002

Here's the car in Miami. The good.

The bad.

And the ugly.

Note missing oil cooler

Intercooler tubes bent beyond repair

Still looks good if you stand back far enough

The wheel has got to go.

Is that the original radio?

At least this part looks good

On the flight back from Miami, they gave out broken cookies.
Coincidence? I think not.
