My Elise In The Newspaper

A local community newsletter featured my 2009 Elise in its hobbies section. I tried scanning the article on a 300 dpi scanner and it produced a poor image.

So I took a photo of it instead. Still not a great photo...but you get the idea.

Previous cars featured were a 60's-era Cobra replica and a modern day Mustang.

By the way I'm the driver and my daughter was the passenger.

Enjoy!

As long as you avoid Tim Horton Donuts, you never see any cops in Canada.

If fact the cop mentioned in the article was entering a Tim Hortons when she complimented me on the car.
