Hi Paul,

just perusing ebay for fun and saw your esprit advert. I had a couple of these and worked offshore, every time I came home the clutch was stuck. I used to put it in gear then start the car without the clutch depressed and it used to jump the clutch clear again.

I guess you have probably tried this but thought I'd email you just in case. Nice car by the way, wish I had the cash.

Danny
