I am looking for some help from the Lotus community to find a 2000 Lotus Esprit V8 in Azure Blue over Magnolia with the VIN SCCDC0827YHA10036 .
Back in 2002, I was just out of high school and Fox Valley Motorcars in Chicago had this car for sale. I printed all the pictures from their site and live cam so I had something to dream about! When my family I made the trip to Chicago Auto Show, we made a point to going out the way (and getting lost!) to find this dealership to let me see and have a picture taken with this Esprit that I loved. I still have the picture preserved!
Just recently after a move, I finally found my long lost papers and pictures I printed over a decade ago of this Esprit, complete with the VIN. I quickly ran an AutoCheck History Report to find out where my dream machine was hiding.
Sadly, I found out that on 12/23/2013 the Esprit had received a Salvage Title in Henderson, Nevada. The website salvagebid.com had apparently had it listed in January of 2014, but when I called their number, they couldn't tell me anything because they don't keep records, or something to that effect.
So I don't know where it is or who owns it, but I'd love to find out.
Can anyone help me out or know its whereabouts?
Thank you all so much!
