    It was a well loved and sorted car with a decent specification.

    All we need now is to find out what modifications your husband made that could improve the value. I know shocks are expensive based on a set I bought so that is one. Engine work to improve the power is two.

    I have friends in Scarborough ME (I used to live in Portland - in the Old Port!) that I can ask for remote help if needed here. I am due to visit them in early June if things drag out that far.

    Wow, I am impressed. Thankyou. Small world!

    I am looking at the receipts and I have difficulty distinguishing repair/maintenance from upgrade but I'll run a few things by you. There is an expensive engine overhaul - he had it removed and about 35 different parts were replaced (belts,hoses of all sorts, hose clamps, gasket sets and seals of all sorts, cylinder head work,head studs, Zetec starter, timing component kit, new oil pump) There is a bill from TechStar- were these the parts that eventually went into the engine overhaul? I have no idea!?
    "Core-Bareblock Zetec, 4pc Piston set Supertech p4-FZ85-P3 10.6:1 compression ratio, Eagle Forged Chromoly H-Beam connecting rod set focus w Zetec 2.0, stud kit,clevite rod bearing and main bearing Zetec 2.0." There is another charge for a aluminum expansion tank and a new starter

    He also purchased a trailer just for the car. Unconditional love in forged aluminum.

    Wow,thankyou I am impressed-small world.

    So I am trying to sort through the receipts and decipher between what is a repair/maintenance and what is an improvement. The biggest expense seems to have been the engine overhaul where the engine was removed and every sort of gasket,belt, hose, clamp and filter was replaced. The bigger charges were the high output Zetec starter, head studs, timing component kit. My son tells me that this operation installed a fuel injection system replacing whatever existed before. Do I sound like a blithering idiot yet?

    There is also a big bill from TechStar for a 4 pc Piston set 10.6:1 compression ratio, Eagle forged chromoly H-beam connecting rod set, Zetec stud kit and bearing set....were these parts that went into the engine overhaul or is this something different? There is another receipt for an oil pump kit.

    And then there is the trailer just for the car with a few custom touches within. Unconditional love in forged aluminum

    Thankyou , everyone for the helpful advise. The Stonington owner would be my husband. I am not surprised he contributed to this forum. He probably did not reveal that he bought the car after his first cancer diagnosis. It was a bucket list sort of thing.

    I am handing over the advise I have received to my son. His love of motor vehicles did not fall far from the tree but he is a bit young and footloose to take care of a Lotus at this time. Thanks again!

    Good grief! I am speechless. What on earth possessed him to build that automotive Liberace?

    Why would I want to read a book about an automotive Liberace?
