I posted this at yahoo but want it here too. I have been talking with the owner of an '83 Esprit who's selling his car in CO. I'm interested enough at this point to see and drive it but I'm in PA. So, if there is someone in the Denver area who'd be willing to check the car out, I'd really appreciate it. The car (according to mapquest) is about twenty-five miles south of downtown Denver. The owner is fine about having someone come out and drive it. Thanks-Ken

Travis (Vulcan Grey) would be my go to guy on this.

If he cant, I can look at it for you but I am no Esprit expert.

I live in Castle Rock, so it's right in my neighborhood. I'd be happy to go take a look at it, but I'm not a mechanic.

I can take some pictures, drive it, check the oil, visually look at the belts, hoses, brakes, tires, etc.

Although, if it's really nice I might have to buy it... j/k no more room :(

If you wanted to pay for a full PPI, I would recommend Mitchell Motors, they have done all the service on my Lotus and have a lot of knowledge on these cars.

When people ask me what I love about my car I almost always bring up this site. It really is an amazing resource and while there are a few, uh, not as great guys for the most part the community is great.

Just don't ask a stupid question like "what break pads should I use"

:)

ross,
Because you brought it up, can this car be used as a daily driver?
If so, what will the resell value be in 2-5 years?
Whats the top speed?
Will it do that speed, even if I dont use 5-40 weight oil?
Can I put TV's in the headrest?

Sorry, could not resist :)

I agree! There are a few "haters" on here, but they are the exception, not the rule.
