So pretty much any time I take my gf for a longer freeway drive in the lotus she falls asleep. If we go somewhere in her mustang she is awake the whole time. Just funny that she can fall asleep in such a loud and rough riding car. Especially after reading about all the guys whose wives/gf's won't even get in their lotus.

Got a crappy picture, had to keep an eye on the road. Ill try to get a better one next time lol

Maybe she's dreaming of your car?

Actually, it makes perfect sense. The loud drone of your car is putting her to sleep. It can be very fatiguing over an extended period of time.

Yup, that's exactly it. Well, look at it this way...........at least you don't have to listen to her talk about her "feelings" right?

I understand the situation but I don't see the problem.

My wife has nodded off at speed in an open TR4 with a glass-pack exhaust.

She has also fallen asleep while we were offroading in my friends F-150 at like 1 in the morning. We were in the back seat bouncing all over but she stayed asleep the whole time until my friend gets to this one part where it looks like you are going off a cliff but there is really a trail going almost straight down. He screams "OHHHH ****!!!!!" and she wakes up ready to have a heart attack lol

but ya I think between the vibrations and the hum of the exhaust it just puts her to sleep haha

Nice. I was recently on a road trip to Vegas and the two dudes in the back (not the Lotus obviously) had fallen asleep. We found one of those trucks that is pulling 2-3 other semi-trucks backwards and got within drafting distance. Right at that moment I yelled "HOLY SH*T!!!" and slammed on the brakes.

They woke up to see something like this:



Pretty funny to hear two grown men scream like little girls.

Back to the original topic... yes my significant other falls asleep almost every long distance in the Exige. She says it's strangely relaxing.

No, not usually. She is usually wide awake waiting for me to drive faster, or take an off ramp circle fast, or do something fun in the car.

My old boyfriend said it was very comfortable to sleep in, and would pass out in any ride over 20 minutes. He'd wedge his head between the seat and the hardtop to keep his head upright; said it was totally comfortable. And the droning and the vibrations put him right out.
