More than once I have left my car outside a nightclub and came out afterward to find someone or more than just someone has spit on it. Each time I am just happy they did not key my ****e. That spitting on it was enough to make them feel better about whatever disappointments seeing the vehicle somehow brought out.
and speaking of spit RCCola they spit in your guac man... heh
I guess some people think it is such an over the top useless exotic toycar it cost a million dollars.
I correct them when I have the opportunity. I am very real with inquireies about the practical and impractical aspects of these machines. I really do try to be a positive ambassador for Lotus... but I watch where and when I park my whip. It happens enough, like I said many posts ago
This car was able to separate me from my money. I spend money on it like it is a prized mistress...,
+ the hours I spend working on it when it really does not need it. So def these cars elicit/evoke very strong impulses/ responses from people, it is on individual basis how those people handle or express in behavior those emotions... Spit washes off, jumping up and dancing over my fragile fiberglass clams like some have experienced... does not... Some people just start smiling when they see it and I just add to it, let them sit in it, take pictures with it. Tell them how much it cost etc... Not going to lie, getting to talk about it and see others responses is kind of part of the fun of owning one. Driving it... well that brings out a demon in me and another topic ! There is no doubt people in my town must think Lotus's are fastest cars in the world sometimes the way I get it ! safely of course
