Since this is my daily driver I've learned to keep a close eye on the SUV / truck behind me. I nearly the other day when a jacked up 4x4 truck with mudder tires pulled up behind me and all I could see out of the rear view camera was the front transfer case / differential. Soon as the light turned green I visually cleared the intersection and then to get out of the way!

Scalpel and Mallet

2006 Pontiac GTO has had numerous powertrain, suspension, brake system, and intake/exhaust upgrades. 2006 Lotus Elise is essentially OEM Lotus, except for a Stage 2 exhaust, but comes great right out of the dealership showroom. These two cars are vastly different, but both of them are tremendous fun to drive.

Love the sig, Dean. Any plans to track the "mallet"?

'05 CO Elise, Touring, Sport, Hardtop

Actually, it isn't break dust. When the rear clamshell got creamed, Ultimate Motorworks Lamborghini in Orlando did a perfect job matching the Nightfall Blue paint -- but they sent the wheel out to get painted.

It was a 'close-enough' match, but since then has been getting darker. I'm sending the picture to them. Thanks for the nudge.

Here's another shot that conseals the dark wheel....
