WOW - These are great pics everyone! They are all really interesting. After seeing SO MANY pictures of beautiful Elises, its cool to see some pics that give a "scale" to the photograph.

The biggest suprise to me was the Gallardo shot. I've seen Gallardos in person before, but I never realized that they are that small. Not much bigger than the Elise.
The pic next to the Accord is cool as well. It shoes how the Elise compares to the 'common' car.

The pic next to the Ram pickup is stomach turning....

Anyways, thanks and keep them coming!!

A nice complementary pair... About the same footprint and surprisingly close in weight.

I'm really jealous right now. Want to trade garages and the contents of them?

Kind of weird to notice how much taller the Miata looks and it's lowered roughly 3"!!! Hmm.. Btw, the model trick seemed to work pretty well, so this is the way the wife wants to get her blue one..
