"If you have a history of speeding, the car's computer will reduce the amount of power the engine produces."

Enjoy your upcoming Elise for what it is, an ungoverned, untracked, unfettered sportscar (ECU data logging notwithstanding).

1984 approaches.

My uncle has a country place, that no one knows about
He says it used to be a farm, before the motor law
And on sundays I elude the ’eyes’ and hop the turbine freight
To far outside the wire, where my white-haired uncle waits.

Jump to the ground
As the turbo slows to cross the borderline
Run like the wind,
As excitement shivers up and down my spine
Down in his barn
My uncle preserved for me, an old machine ---
For fifty-odd years
To keep it as new has been his dearest dream

I strip away the old debris, that hides a shining car
A brilliant red barchetta, from a better, vanished time
I fire up the willing engine, responding with a roar
Tires spitting gravel, I commit my weekly crime...

Alas, Alex Zivojinovich (a.k.a. Alex Lifeson) is on his way to trial for battery. Some incident involving pushing a cop down a flight of stairs during a concert at the Ritz in Naples, FL on new years eve.
