Hey gang! I have not been active in a long while. Hello to all my old friends. In 2004 I ordered two Lotus which were delivered in early 2005. In late 2007 I had some finanical problems which resulted in needing to sell both cars. I started a new company which has gone well enough that I decided to buy a CO Elise like one of my old cars. The day I started looking, remarkably, my old car went up for sale so I called the owner and as of today I have my original baby back!!

#1314 is back in my garage, perfect as ever, where she belongs. Many thanks to Jared A. for taking care of her in my absence!

That's VERY cool...

I've been looking for the first car I ever bought to be seen somewhere so I can buy it back

1987 Merkur XR4Ti... Might have gotten scrapped/crushed though :(

Thanks all! Good to be back!

Wayne - funny story. You may recall you provided me with one of your awesome "Originally built for..." plaques. When I called the second owner, he recognized my name - he said I see your name on the doorsill everytime he drive it. He never had the heart to remove it... so my name was still on the car when I got her back. Too cool!
