Actually, the Lotus Esprit has been at that work site every work day since October 2011.

However, depending on the time of year, I park it in different areas.

In the summer, I park away from trees with a car cover (the area was obscured by trees from Montague, but last week, they cut down the trees for re-landscaping - you can now see it from Montague.

In the fall/winter, I park in direct view of Montague because that's the closest entrance to my office (best when it's raining). And I don't use a car cover in the fall/winter - too much hassle with keeping the car clean (it can go 1-2 weeks without a wash).

It may be heresy but it's a daily driver so I don't wash it if it's going to rain 2 days later. The periodic rain has it out to 'unwashed' for 3 weeks now - I may have to do it this weekend regardless.

I got nearly 14K miles in 14 months - even in the daily commute, I have alot of fun with the car; the most fun car I've ever owned.

Sorry - won't be there.

I was a GGLC member for a full year, but never got a chance to hang out with the GGLC folks (my wife keeps me on a short leash).

Will probably renew my membership - I like the newsletter, but keep forgetting to do it (expired in November)

I waved too! I couldn't see if you did.

I was just asking someone at the GGLC dinner if it was him, as he has a white one too. He said he's on Montague every day!

My route is Capitol Expressway-680 South- Montague Monday-Friday

FYI I have seen a gray Elise parked at Qualcomm on Junction Avenue (1/2 mile from my work). Of course, with Dietschwerkes another mile down the street, Lotus cars are common in this area.

"Lotus cars are common in this area" is not a phrase that gets said very often! lol
