My KG Elise and it's roommates

What do you get when you have 4 single mechanical engineers living in the same house?

A great collection of autos.

My 2006 KG Elise and the roommates 2002 C5 Z06, 2006 C6, and recently acquired Paxton supercharged 2000 Viper GTS ACR.

Thanks man, we love our cars. The Viggen in the picture just sold and not pictured are two Titans, one with a 6 inch lift and 35s.

An E46 or E36 M3 is on the way in the near future because the Elise needs a summer beater. The ac just doesn't cut it in this heat out here.

Any enthusiast is good. One with a KG Lotus is far better.

The Viggen was getting a brake job for its new owner before he picked it up. It is no longer with us but it was a great car.

The Elise seriously skews the average # of cylinders and displacement at that house

Who drew the short straw and has to park outside?

... and you aren't kidding about Yuma being hot. I've been to YPG a few times in the summer and it makes Tucson seem balmy.

Great stuff. Love KG.

Great first pic. Right behind my college car - white CRX Si. Man, I LOVED that car.

Fun little rocket. Absolute blast to drive. 2 Seater in college? Never have to be designated driver!

from your house I guessed you lived in AZ and I was correct.

awesome license plate design.

The C5 spends its days outside most nights as does the Elise since they both get driven most often. The Elise is definitely lacking in the displacement and HP department not to mention torque but weekend drives in the Viper help make up for it.

Thanks for all the compliments guys.

SwingLo, I was just the opposite I rocked a GMC Safari Ferrari for my first two terms of college.

Well sad news, the new owner just emailed my roommate the other night and said that he was side swiped in it. A ten year old car that has never had a single fender bender. Kind of shi77y for such a fun car to drive.

You need a rack, it helped me out. And you can clean the under side of the Elise as well.

I would get one in a second if we weren't currently renting. It would make oil changes and coolant flushes so much easier.

I absolutely love the E-Type.

Shame to hear about the Viggen, they can be quite a bit of fun. I definitely like the lift idea for adding parking spaces, I'm just beginning to research lifts for maximizing my indoor parking capacity.
