East Coaster of the Day

East Coaster of the Day is your daily dose of wheeled East Coasters. If you have a wicked ride you’d like to see featured here, please drop us a line: [email protected]com 

When Giorgetto Giugiaro designed the “Folded Paper” 1977 Lotus Esprit S1, he probably never imagined one would end up on the streets of Halifax 43 years later in the loving hands of Jeremy Male. Nor would he have imagined that one being featured as East Coaster of the Day.

This 2,000-pound, mid-engine 170 horsepower beauty caught our eye at the impromptu Woodside Ferry car-meet the other night and Jeremy gave us the tour; hand-made wheels, a piece of flex tube from a submarine in its exhaust system, a hand polished twin-carb 4-cylinder engine and of course a dash plaque in memory of his mother.
