Probably need to downsize the fleet a car or two next spring.....
That 356 is very cool. I have an NB Miata too, what a great driver's car.

Can't beat an old Miata for fun-per-dollar!

I had a $750 356C in high school and college, these pics are from the early 70's or so! I bought the new red one for nostalgia, but I think I'll probably sell it- too expensive to enjoy.

2016 Audi TTS

Its actually faster than my Elise but nothing come close to the Elise cornering ability. Yes the Audi pulls nearly a G on the skid pad but at 3,200 lbs, you have to brake so much sooner....

Still, I enjoy off season driving ALMOST as much as Elise driving. (Well, nearly almost)

Pretty sure our garage is among the weirdest/rarest within our circle of friends:

Left. Superformance S1 (1 of 56? worldwide). Hers. Just as fun to ride in it as it is to drive.
Middle. Alfa Romeo Giulia (about as rare as a corvette). Ours. Easily the best sedan we've ever owned.
Right. Noble M400 (1 of 700? worldwide, 220 US-based). Mine. 0-60 in 2.8s, 60-120mph in 5s, and other ridiculous numbers.

Been wanting to add to our collection a proper Lotus, instead of having a pseudo-Lotus -- Fautus?
