Looks kinda cool, lol. Reminds me of when my buddies car was stolen. They found the car and they took his steering wheel so he clamped two vice grips to steer on the way home. I'd highly recommend against that...

Just call the car a Rat Rod and think of this as art!

i think it looks really really nice - must be the metal with metal...i think it is destined to be one of the "cool classic elise pics" Good Luck - keep it in 6th? Where are you headed... Manhattan Motor Cars?

This car is really jealous of the new stable mate. Maybe you should leave it at the dealer on consignment?

Make sure Ian works on your car.

It seems as if that dealer's reputation has gone down hill since Nicole is no longer there...

Also, test drive an Evora!!!!

Ian has been out for quite some time and all they will say is they have no idea when he is coming back....

Glad it went ok. Hope they treat you well! Have you had the oil line recall done?

Not done yet..only my luck..I get down here and they are shorted one small piece needed to wrap this shifter up.. They have to overnight it to us. Guy offered me a spare room next door at his house to stay over.. I told him better get me some beers too..

Seen your Exige there ...nice whip! I just got one too.. What's wrong with yours?
Thanks bro... Long story short they installed my BOE surge tank and oil pan and less than 100 miles later the fuel lines blew and its also leaking oil. It was fine when they got it and now its a mess...
