My girls..

I'm just hoping that the Elise doesn't pick up any bad habits from her sister- like leaking oil!
Ironically, the two are nearly identical in dimensions.
(the elise is a tad bit shorter and wider).

Youth is not entirely a time of life; it is a state of mind. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals.You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as
your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.

i like this thread-- good to see elise/exiges in the context of other cars instead of by themselves...

here's mine with my other cars...

all my 4 cars (sorry, celi is under cover):


distant cousins...


top view comparison of MR2 and Exige:


this one has a "normal" car, my sis's hyundai, in the photo...

Funny your Exige is the only one not covered (I'm sure you have means of protecting it)

What I really wanted to do is to tell you that the color on the Exige is amazing from those photos.

hey thanks! it was full sun out, so the color came out lighter and brighter than it normally looks... it's a weird paint color-- can go from dark blue to what you see in the photos

the reason is because that was the first morning after i brought it home the night before, and i was shuffling around my cars and kicking out the bimmer from the garage so that the lotus can go there where it belongs... all my cars get a car cover (Covercraft Evolution 4 Block-It), whether indoors or out...

btw, our family owns no 4-door cars (and defintely no SUV/trucks), lol... are we weird??

I don't think anyones posted an elise next to one of these yet

I thought about putting 9 Elises in the picture to cover the price gap but I think one looks pretty sweet.

Those Internationals are the lamest personal means of transportation ever created by the hand of man.

It'd be one thing if they actually looked kind of cool, but the styling is probably WORSE than a new typical 18 wheeler cab.

Great pics though! I believe that has to be the absolute largest vehicle for sale in the USA parked next to the absolute smallest.

no, i just ran out snaped two and came back in. funny, when i was out there i threw some stuff in the car, i was between the truck and my car. a late modle amg benz pulls up slow only expecting to check out the truck nd were astonished to see the lotus. all of us got a good chuckle out of that.
