92' Toyota Previa with 24k miles. Not too special but funky, unique, mid-engined, RWD and a very practical alternative when an Elie is my daily driver. I call it my beach van since it's mostly used for surfing, kiteboarding or diving locally

66 Mustang that is on the wild side. Probably going to sell it as I like driving the Elise so much more, plus it is too loud for my neighborhood.

If referring to the MR2 and or MCS, yes it's factory color. Steel mist gray for the MR2 and forgot the gray shade for the Cooper.

My current garage occupiers. The Rx-7 was bought new by my dad 35 years ago. It is raw and direct, the most fun car I had ever driven up until I drove my Elise. I'll never sell either. The Aston is at the polar opposite end of the sports car spectrum. Very stable, very fast, great steering, much stiffer than most people expect. The most beautiful shape to ever be put on wheels as far as I'm concerned. But I'm not in love with the car.

I like blue...

What the Elise Replaced:


My Wife's Daily:
2011 FX50




Wife's old daily, with my utility/daily behind it (her old old daily). I tell her what cars to buy, then I get her handy downs, which is ok with everyone as long as I also get to keep at least one weekend/race car around at all times.

I have the ancient version for AIX:


Tubular Front, 11" engine setback, 355 rubber. Driver sits in the rear seat (not really, but close)
No longer raced, since the cage no longer meets the specs and I race junk now for fun.
