    And about had to change my pants. I matched his speed for a bit to get some pictures. Then my camera flashed. Then he nudged the skinny pedal. Then there were no more pictures.

    Here's the website. http://www.lotuscars.com/

    THere is an orangeish one that was parked downtown in NOLA. I got to take a long look at it and it is a cool little car. I was surprised at how small it was though, and I used to own a Miata.

    I glanced in my mirror, and thought it was a Ferrari coming up on me. I was more excited to see the Lotus! :haha: The specs are on the website. They make it sound like an el cheapo supercar.

    There was a cool orange one that I've seen a couple of times in Minneapolis. Then, I remember that Elise is the name of the roommates former girlfriend and she was a BIG girl...that sorta ruins the moment.

    I've seen a yellow one running around downtown Oklahoma City. I think I could literally put that thing in the back of my 8 ft. bed pickup.

    Picturing Chad driving a Miata, makes me think of an elephant riding a tricycle.

    I'm pretty sure you could fit one in an 8' bed...I've seen it done with a Suzuki. :D

    Also, Chad, how tall are you? I'm 6'5" and got a ride in a Miata once, we had to put the top down in 40 degree weather. :haha:

    See em all the time around here. When I had my S2000, i hung out with a big crowd of S2Kers. Well, the step up from the S2K is the Lotus. I soon departed from that group, a lil too stuffy for my redneck ass. lol.. Wasnt my crowd for sure.

    I am from Quebec, rural Quebec. Growing up, my dad would point out a Mercedes if we ever saw one, it was a big deal...Now I live in Santa Barbara, As we speak I am parked between a new Mercedes and a BMW (neither of which are mine...I have the 1999 Chevy Blazer LS withthe car seat and plastic pieces falling off). A BMW 525i in this town is what a Chevy Cavalier is in the midwest, a regular car.

    We have several Lotus' Elises, a McClaren F1, at least a couple Ferrari Enzo's and a Porshe Carerra GT. I regularly see Bentley's, Rolls Royces, and have even seen a Mybok driving down the street the other day.

    dang this town is out of control
