YUM!!!

I think the ESP has got to be the poster child for Gold Simmons whatever their model.

They just look awesome on them for some readon.

Nice car buddy.

Looks really good mate, that's awesome. How long have you had it for, when did you get it?
I've got the same one just not V8 (p plate laws). all i need is to fix up the sierra trim.
I noticed the yellow stripe along the side of the body, i was going to buy one but wasn't sure if it would suit the colour, it looks good in the pic from what i can see. But what do you think, does it look alright in person?

Your ESP looks great, even if its was in a more "less than at its best look" at the moment still give it a detail and bring it along to All Ford Day. There is a group of ESP's displaying on the day. I dont even know if there is another chestnut in their display. Nice ride, post some more pics,and hope to see you and your ESP on the day.:hy:

Cheers

Cameron.

I bought the car in 95 the way u see it in the photo with stripe and no simmons,i was going to take the stripe off but it looks good with the chestnut colour,i think the dealer i got from put the stripe on,my drivers seat bolster has got a bit of wear and searched for years to find material i couldnt find anything until i found the esp site ,you will find what u need on there.When u get off ur P plates u can put a V8 in it ,is yours a auto or 4 speed.

unfortunately it's auto. But i wouldn't argue either way, it's still an original ESP, which will always be an awesome bonus. and yeah, i have a 351 just sitting in the garage, i cant wait to put it in. haha it will most likely go in early anyway and ill still be on my p's. I was driving a big block 351 for most of my L's so to go to a standard 6 just isn't the same. :D
So you think it will be worth getting some of those stripes?

yeah man, can't wait to see some more pics, get some up real soon. those two pics have been a inspiration since i saw them a while back. especially with those simmons.

Edit: Also noticed that the sideview mirrors were painted? that wasn't factory was it? looks nice tho, sorta adds a little extra touch.

Hi Theo,
yeah Im ORIGINAL FATESP on the ESP Ghia forum. Yes I am taking my ESP to All Ford Day to display with them. I know you can apply for a day permit from the RTA to take a car out. See you there.

Cheers

Hey there Theo,
Yeah I will be meeting up with the ESP guys in the morning. I will see you there.
Your right there are no large ESP posters to buy. It would be good to see some made.

Cheers
