First ride in my new Esprit!

So today I got to, for the first time, stretch the legs on my new-to-me Esprit SE.

With my 9 year old daughter riding shotgun, we went for lunch, then stretched its legs a bit (mildly as small child in the car).

What an amazing day! She took a few blurry, but meaningful pictures to document.

I have to say, while I lived the car, she was more excited and happy with out new purchase than anyone.

Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe we have created a new generation Lotus fan.

Looks like it was a great day! My 9 year-old daughter loves to come along when I occasionally take the Elise in town for errands.

Looks like fun.

I just watched Basic Instinct yesterday and was marveling at how cool those black and white Esprits looked. The racing scene along the coastal highway was terrific.

Enjoying your new Lotus, giving the little one an outing, and creating - perhaps - a new Lotus fan ... I'd call that a great day!
