Speaking of HPT, the calendar for the Wed afternoon track session is out. They moved up the start time to 3 p.m. and bumped up the cost a bit. Darksol and I went quite a few times last year, it's a good way of spending a few laps on the track.

So am I the first one in Oklahoma here? I haven't seen any other Lotus, much less an Elise or Exige in OK. I have heard that there was possibly one in Oklahoma City, but the guy said he might have just been passing though on I-44, I-40, or I-35 because he didn't have Oklahoma plates (neither do I right now, but that should be taken care of next week).

Woo Hoo!!! Another Elise in Oklahoma!!!! I'm just down the road in Tulsa. I've had my '05 since March. I used to have a MINI so I run around with the OKMINI crowd a bunch and make it over to OKC now and then for drives. Glad to see there's someone else 'nearby'!!

MidRivers isn't that far, much closer to you than I. Don't let that be the the reason you're waiting.

I guess this isn't the most active thread on the site!! I got my '05 Elise in many pieces in November '07 and got it on the road for this spring. I live in North Dakota and I know there is one Exige in Fargo (Hi Shane!!)... I have owned a number of interesting cars through the years but have never had a vej=hicle that can change my attitude in quite the same way as this little guy! Would be interested to get some feedback on Midwest Lotus service ....it's gonna be a long drive.... Wooo Hooo!!
