So far I have been feeding my Elise obsession photographically, doing research and hoping to buy this year. But this virtual experience is lacking as I have yet to ride or drive in an Elise. There are not any for sale in the area to check out at this time. Is there a Marin or Sonoma owner who would introduce me to the Elise? I live in Pt. Reyes Station and could meet you on your turf or in Pt. Reyes Station, if you want a nice drive. I am semi-retired and haven't had a sports car since the 60's (an XKE, a couple of Morgans, and an Elan) and want that experience again.
