I didn't realize this section existed on LotusTalk until a few days ago. My wife and I moved from Alaska last summer and will be building a home here in Colorado in the near future. We're both CSU grads from about 25 years ago ... we met there, finished college and have been married ever since.

Car-specific Trivia: The carbon and glass in the parts I've made for the car are Predator scraps.

Here is a picture of our car the day before snow closed Trail Ridge Road in 2014


This is an interior mod I haven't previously posted on LotusTalk. This arm rest keeps my elbow from going numb on long drives. It just sits on the sill, held in place with friction. When it's not in use, I just slide it vertically between the seat and the sill.



Here is another item I haven't posted in the main section of LotusTalk. These pictures show the rear-most bar of a 4-bar hinge I'm building for the rear clam. The project was interrupted by moving from Alaska to Colorado. It will get finished once we build a new house and garage.





Picture of you: This is the Silver Eagle, a battery-powered electric vehicle that set 21 land speed records - 14 National and seven International - in August 1971 at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Top speed was 152.598 mph. I'm the kid behind the right front wheel, my dad is on the far right and Joe Petrali is the oldest guy in the front row.
