Mark Terrio-Cameron's 1988
Mark Terrio-Cameron from Medicine Hat, Canada owns a 1988 Turbo in Red with a Tan/Sand interior.
Turbo Year: 1988 Colour: Red Interior: Tan/Sand Driving Style: Fast Miles per year: 0 – 1,000 Owned Since: 2007 Purchase from: Private Serviced/parts at: Parts are from all over the place.. JAE, Espritism etc. Other Cars: 1988 Toyota Supra, 2002 Sunfire, 1993 Eagle Talon Previous Lotus': None Why an Esprit: Hmmm... well, I've always dreamt of owning an Esprit or a Ferrari 308. If I baught a Ferrari and worked on it myself... the value would plummet, whereas on the Esprit... it doesn't seem to effect the value nearly as much. Additionally... Esprit parts are relatively cheap in comparison to Ferrari. Plus... IT'S DAMN SEXY!!!! Upgrades: See Below Problems:
hmmm... haven't really had any yet, only because I haven't driven it! hehehe!
Info: Baught it in January, 2007 and immediately tore it apart. I've previously owned an old porsche 924 and learned, quickly, that in order to own something like this you must try and find all the problems first... otherwise you'll be disassembling and re-assembling the car way too often.
