Years ago I had a '62 AH Sprite. It was my first sports car, and was a kick just to get in and drive. It even rivaled my first 911 as a thrill to drive/own, though the 911 came many years later, and was a far superior car compared to the Sprite. Have any of you current Lotus owners had experience with the British sports cars of old (or other vehicle), and what are your thoughts on such a comparison? I realize the newer Lotus' are far more refined not to mention much quicker, but the thrill factor seems to be a common theme in this forum, despite some of the shortcomings I've read about in the Stickies/FAQ.
