on 5/13 I plan on flying to Atlanta to purchase my first Lotus. I have read through several of the Roadtrip! threads and have decided I will need to bring, purchase while there, or ship ahead of time a few things, but I have some questions about those items and the route in general.
small scissor jack or similar (any recommendations on the smallest/lightest?)
tire plug kit
spare fuses (does it use the mini or regular sizes?)
AAA membership (any way to get a discount?)
hockey puck for the jack if needed
small air pump with long enough wire (any recommendations?)
10mm-15mm sockets, extensions, and ratchet (original tool kit comes with the car)
tire pressure gauge
Am I missing anything? I know some of this is redundant, especially with AAA, but I think I will be in areas with no cell phone coverage and want a backup plan. It also has the hard and soft top, so most of the storage space will be taken. Oh yeah, and my Dad is coming along for the ride :-)
The car is a 2005 with original tires and very low mileage. It has been garage kept in GA it's whole life. Should I worry about the tire age? since it has seen less sun while in a garage does the age matter less? It sounds like all recalls have been performed and it was recently serviced at Motorcars of Atlanta.
Finally, any suggestions on twisty roads close to the routes shown below? I know Northern Georgia has a lot of good ones, but most are an hour or two out of the way. any of the 3 routes suggested by Google that will put me close to some drives that I must do?
Thanks in advance!
