  Notes:
I am Rohan Hodges I live in Melbourne Australia and this is my Esprit.

I have owned it for the last 30 years and I am the second owner.

It came from the dealer ( to the first owner who I purchased the car from) with the series 2 JPS style gold wheels and gold pin striping similar but not identical to the JPS cars. I have sent an email to Andy Graham to see if he has any details on the wheels and pin striping and whether this was done by the factory or the dealer or importer but JPS S2 production was well underway by the time the car was imported into Australia from Lotus in early 1979. The car has a mix of S1 and S2 features with a standard S1 body and front spoiler and S1 instruments but interior trim is otherwise S2 style. Other details such as dual headlamp motors and location of battery and coolant fill tank are S2.

The dealer was Performance Automobiles 269-271 Davey St Hobart Tasmania Australia who first registered the car and used it as a demonstrator in May 1979. The car was imported into Australia by James Smith Motor Imports who obtained the Australian compliance plate certification in March 1979 for a batch of Esprits they imported starting with serial number 0150J. The car was sold by the dealer in October 1980 to Graeme Beedel in Queensland, the person I bought the car from in September 1983.

The car has never been restored and has only had routine servicing over the years I have owned it. The engine has never been out or the head removed. I fitted Dellortos in 1984 to bring the engine back to European spec. The engine was a European spec engine but fitted with Strombergs to meet Australian emission requirements as far as I could tell. I removed the gear box once to replace the clutch plate in the early 90's. and removed / rebuilt / replaced the water pump in the middle 90's with the engine in a car (a pig of a job!) . I have done a few other minor modifications replacing the cast exhaust with tubular headers as the original casting cracked and replacing the engines mounts with new ones using industrial machinery anti vibration mounts as the original ones especially on the exhaust side would last only about 12 months before failing.
