Wow. Great pic Chazzer!

Looked at her, freshly detailed - under the car cover - in the garage, as I left for work in my Wrangler. I did adjust the headlight height, installed a switch under the dash to disable the DRL's, and order an exhasut from Plack right before I put her away though

let my nephew barrow the lotus to check out the exhaust changes(Larini de-cat and Lotus sports exhaust) While he was out testing my Wife and I walked down to the local ice-cream shop. While ordering I heard a very nice exhaust note fly by the ice-cream shop, but did not get a look at the car. A guy in line said a "awesome Ferrari" jus flew buy. He added nothing sounds quite like a V12 at WOT. 5 minutes later my car comes flying by again. Same guy leans over and says "nothing like a Ferrari"

About a hour later my nephew gets back with the car and tells me it sounded good, but really did not get the chance to "open her up all the way"

What really was cool is I have never really listened to the car from the outside to get the full effect of the sound. I can't imagine How the Plack edition exhaust sound. Probably like a F1 race in your town.

Awesome

Plack at WOT is insanely loud. But sounds just absolutely wonderful. Everything your ears would want in a sports car... In the canyons & hills it the definition of eargasm. The best part of my day is starting her up.

Well most of it is 4 lanes with no worry about passing. Great road in April. Also 99 past Pemberton(Duffy Lake) is twisty but new pavement and new bridges, perfect for....driving the speed limit.....

I took the family to the zoo. Arrived 30 minutes before the gates opened to get a parking spot up front. Was immediately approached by a car guy who wanted to chat about Lotus, F1, and his classic Alfa Romeo.

Yesterday we were just driving on I-80 and the cars were comming down from hot August nights in Reno, Nevada. Saw lots of cool cars with thumbs up both to me and back at the classic like a 65 fast back mustang at cruised past me. Fun
