Passing the Torch

Sad day , Happy day. My Esprit is gone to happy new home. I would like to congratulate Mike Waites on his (new to him ) Esprit S4s. It has been a dream of his for a long time.

I'm sure it's going to a good owner.
I'll keep in touch. You're a valuable resource for S4s's. Regards.

We are still in touch with Alex in Cali who took care of the Evora after us. I hand wrote a letter to put in the glovebox as the original owner for whoever later might have that wonderful car.

Congrats to Mike on acquiring your S4s and to Dave for being a great PO.

That S4s also has some sentimental value to me as it was the first Esprit I purchased 16 years ago...
