I've just got to celebrate. My "new" 2005 BRP Elise arrived from Hollywood on Saturday night, just ahead of ANOTHER Wisconsin snow storm on Sunday. I'm sure the car is suffering from culture shock right now, but it'll get over it. We managed to take it out on some dry roads in the dark before we put her up in the garage.

The Lotus is everything I expected, and just as nice as her previous owner represented. Now I just can't wait for the thaw (which should be sometime in late June).

Here's my son and the car...he's the guy who first turned me on to the Elise a couple of years ago while we were driving our Miata at RoadAmerica. Thanks Robert!

Oh, and I'm just holding onto the window frame for balance...I'm not putting any weight on it!

She's a beauty! And it's OK to grab side of the frame when that hardtop is on, even though most of us never do it :D Keep those soft tires out of cold weather! They don't like getting cold. Congrats on your ride. I think dad and son are going to have to work out custody rights!
