Sorry if this is a repost.
The Elise was briefly shown on World's Greatest Auto Shows: Miami last night. Elenor Mondale chose it as her "Loser" of the show due to the spartan interior an difficut to remove top.
Come on you guys, for 90% of America she is right about the car! And, although I didn't see the video from what you describe her physique fits the demographic also. Hey, I'm proud some no nothing lard-butt thinks the car is a loser! Oh and the top is hard to remove, especially the hard top!
Her winner was the Lincoln Mark LT Pick-Up because:
1) People when they saw the show car at Chicago said it wouldn't be built (funny I knew it would be because Ford could build it in very limited numbers and make a fortune with it's additional mark upof 4k over a comp. f150)
2) She liked the plush leather interior
3) She wanted to look good "getting hay"
And earlier in the show she mentioned she was looking for something to pull her horses with. Which the Mark is wonderful for I'm sure. My point is that she is absolutely not one that would understand our cars. She even admitted she dislikes sports cars.
