Spotted a white Evora NB 101 (near the 405) yesterday afternoon around 1:30PM. Rolled down my window and gave you a thumbs up, you gave me this look like I'd just impregnated your wife and daughter in a Bacchanalian threesome.

Saw an Elise, SY with STi stripes (LotusSport perhaps?) and a Sector decal on the rear panel headed south on PCH at Sunset this morning around 9am. Jim maybe? Headed to the MDR meet?

Wasn't me, I'm always on PCH but usually not that far north. I did spot a TS Elise yesterday on PCH though. It was by Aliso Creek around 3ish. I was too busy looking at the clouds to see if I was about to drive in to a rainstorm that I didn't notice it until they honked at me.

That was me honking and a thumbs up. Got caught in the rain myself after I hit the 5. The joys of hydroplaning in the Elise are not to be overstated

HAHA, yah I almost made it to Crystal Cove before I started getting dumped on. You get some interesting looks from people when you drive a Lotus in the rain... with the top off.

Happened to me on occasion when a light sprinkle came down when I was driving around town. I sped up on the freeway to get home and found out the water flows right over the open top area and I got home pretty dry.

Best guess = someone on a secret mission

An Elise in Chrome Orange. No extra trim or stripes. Top on. Solo driver as best we could tell.

Tue Jul 3rd, 7:20am: North on Main St & a right at Memory Lane & a left at Lawson. My passenger spotted your car right off.

Tue Jul 17th, aprox 12:30p: Car was Westbound on 17th near Tustin Ave. It was my lunchtime, going N on Tustin and so I only caught a glimpse
Are you sure it wasnt an exige? I work right there at the mid-rise on lawson/town & country and drive a chrome orange exige.

Good spot yes but awkward in my opinion. I never back into a spot with the Exige because I can't see much and I also like leaving nice the rear-end visible. Then when I back out of the spot I check both ways before getting in the car, roll down both windows and look out both windows while moving.

This driver must be more skilled, must think the front end it more pretty, and may have been unloading a body from the trunk.

'06 Exige - Arctic Silver w/ HIDs & red leather.
'03 MRS - Black Onyx Pearl Mica, hardtop/S2K seats/bracing/TS panels/Lotus style exhaust.
