I may have to drive up there on Sat. the 21st. Keep us posted about the Elise there. I really need my fiance to sit in the passenger seat. She's only 5'1" and since the seat doesn't adjust at all, I have to be sure she'll be okay riding in the car. I can't imagine it being much fun for her if she only gets a faceful of aluminum dash and can't even see out the front of the car ... or if she can't brace herself for cornering because her legs can't press against anything.
She fits well into the Honda S2000, and I suspect that'll be what I end up with. I don't mind saving $14k either. Besides, I think my Ducati and the Lotus would be serving too much of the same purpose -- neither one is useful for anything other than a weekend tear around the backroads. I may need something that can at least travel 1000 miles reliably and with room for a bag or three.
Can someone confirm that the Elise will be there the whole time? I am thinking about going Sunday the 22nd. Also, if we can get some details in reference to being able to checking out the car up close and sitting in it.

So K24 and an 06 Honda SI tranny is the plan. NA at first and then a merc raving TVS 2300/rotrex or perhaps a crazy NA build like the...
Merry Xmas and happy holidays!
I'm so excited to share the DIY project I just completed for my beloved 111R Elise as she is almost 10 years. I feel I owe to prepare some special gifts for her. I personally prefer mods without altering the original design or parts...so here comes the "removable...
A warm true story from Yesterday's Festivals of Speed in St. Petersburg Florida.
A little girl and her Dad were admiring my car. I first noticed the two of them kneeling down at the back of the car with her pointing to the "Elise" at the bottom of the tag/license plate frame and the “08 Elise”...
