and i want to thank Abe for taking his time to talk to me and fay regarding the Evora, and showing us the entire Lotus booth, she (my gf) is highly considering an Evora, and may even give NE a call to get on the list.

True enough, but the Solstice DID dominate T2 this year, a class in which the Elise is not even remotely competitive.

khamai Seems not ALL the "aftermarket parts" were to be found in Kentia Hall. There were a lot "booth" personnel modeling the cars with their fair share of "aftermarket parts".

Cheers,

Yep, hard not to notice, but I was with my g/f, so I had to have the appearance of being good. Besides, they take way too much "Gallar-dough" to keep interested.

Who saw the girl with the new 370Z? She had great twin coolers, aero tail and front splitter!

I saw her chest all the way from West Hall. The Maserati female booth attendants were much friendlier (and also very attractive), that Lambo girl didn't seem interested in talking to anyone, at all. They basically hired her as decoration.

Randy Chase Should. That is what Sunspeed did, Honda swaps.
11-24-2008 08:20 AM
sleeprfocus Does the SunSpeed S1 Exige have a Honda motor in it? It looks familiar, I was thinking about the motor swap when I saw the car on Saturday. FYI, the SL65 AMG Black Series was at the LA Auto Show, PURE SECKS! My favorite car of the show hands down.

I remember ! I bought a copy of Rendezvous from you there !

Fun to see that it's possible to purchase a brand-new Scarab

mikester I was there yesterday - always a good show, but I think the crowds were definitely lower than previous years, and for the second year in a row, the number of afermarket exhibitors was noticeably smaller. This is not surprising in light of the economy right now.

Loved the Evora I think Lotus has done a very nice job with this model.

On my way back to the car, I took a detour just north of the convention center, to the new Nokia Theater complex, and was really fortunate to see David Cook doing a dry run for his performance later that night for the American Music Awards pre-show. It's not like I'm a huge fan (but my wife is, she was super-jealous that she missed this), but wow he sounded really good, it was fun to stumble on that.

After reading how they're losing $10k on each one sold, doesn't sound so promising

can you say Fiero. GM CEOs thought it was an economy two seater car. The engineers thought it was a great chance to build a cool sports car.

Sounds like the same CEOs that got them to where they are today.

Public is stupid...they will buy our stuff.
