Trade: Shelby Cobra for Lotus Elise

I am looking to trade my Shell Valley Cobra for a Lotus Elise 2005-6.

Car is in Huntington Beach California and I would like a California titled car.

302HO 5 speed
Bilsteins . A lot of work has gone into making it handle properly. Correct spring rate, toe, camber, tire width.
280Hp
Comfortable seats so can take long trips.

I have tried to make this look classic. I have daily driven it for literally 7 months without an issue.

Comes with a lot of spare, including seats, sway bar, springs etc

I am looking for something that I can do a cross country trip in. The Cobra is not ideal with the wife!

You'll have a better chance of selling your car and buying an Elise. The odds that someone will want to get rid of their Elise for your car are not good. Good luck.

True. Worth a try as I am willing to lose a few $ so I dont have to deal with selling it. This is worth about $35k on a warm day.

I can't say I've ever heard of anyone looking for an Elise because they need something comfortable for a cross-country trip.

You're sure we're talking about the same Lotus Elise?

By comfortable I mean it has windows and a roof sort of.

Cobra doesnt, which is fine for Southern California but I do want to do some massive driving while Im in the US. Despite how baddass it would be I think the Cobra would suck on a 6000+mile drive (for someone other than me!)
