Hello! New owner from Steilacoom, WA
Hello all, I have been on the forum for the last year or so lurking (helped pass the time during deployment to Afghanistan) and finally found the Elise for me and wanted to introduce myself to my fellow Pac NW'ers. I am currently stationed at Fort Lewis and am an executive officer in a cavalry scout troop. I am posting this a week after getting the car because I drove the car to work a couple times and got so much attention I felt like it was wrong to ask for anymore by posting on here, but Lckitty asked me to post some pics so I figured what could a little more attention hurt?
I have read the stories on here about people's reactions to seeing a Lotus, but I guess I wasn't prepared for all the waves, stares, call-outs, 10 minute long parking lot conversations, accusations of "coming from money" (other Soldiers comments...but nobody says anything about the $40k mustangs everyone and their mom buys), and the 1990 Acura something or another trying to race me on a 30 mph city street with stoplights every block...and I've only had it a week haha! It's been a great week with a non-stop grin. I've been tired at work all week because I stay in the garage until super late at night detailing it and just getting familiar with it.
Looking forward to hopefully making it Redmond Exotics next week and meeting some fellow LT'ers. I am not a photographer but it was actually a beautiful sunny day so that counts for a lot up here!
