I keep dreaming I'm gonna get that 3rd Cylinder Mis-Fire/Cam-Lobe failure thing and have to deal with it! :panic:

Other than that, haven't had a Lotus "nightmare" 1, yet! :up:

Now Skydiving - there is a different story. Although I've been jumping for nearly 15 years now, and have approaching 1,900 jumps, every so often I still get the all too familiar "going in" / "bouncing" one. :eek:

Staying home to detail my Jag, and do a HPDE/CTD in the Lotus this weekend though! :nanner2: Woo-Hoo! Can't wait!! :cool:

when I was in school I would always get those dreams where I missed a test or a class or remembered I had a class that I hadnt gone to all term dreams those sucked(not quite as scary as bouncing tho :p)

I also had dreams when I was working in a restaurant about not being able to get to all the tables I needed too...

fortunatly even after almost 2 years I still havent had one of those dreams at my real job :)

I had this dream that it was raining, and I had to put the top on the car!

If that wasn't bad enough, when I got to where I was going (with the top up), I had to get out of the car, trying to not look dorky doing it, because a beautiful woman was watching!

It was a dream, wasn't it?

I had a dream yesterday I was parking real quick to pickup a pizza and bumped the front clam on a high curb and it got a crack...then I realized it wasn't a dream.:wallbang: Couldn't believe I had just did that.
It goes across where the front licence plate would be, I hit it with touch up paint and ordered an Elise sticker from sweetdaddydelicious to cover it up. :D
I don't feel like getting a ton of fiberglass work done right now.

I rarely dream... but I had one a week or two ago that involved the Elise... driving up a barren rocky mountain that most 4-wheelers would have trouble navigating!!!

I was standing on the back of a salvage barge recovering my Exige from the seafloor. As I remember it, somehow my Lotus rolled off the back of a ferry and sunk. Funny part was they used the front towhook to lift it as the diver didn't want to scratch the paint.

HA,
I thought I was the only one that had car dreams.
I often dream about the Lotus and also about driving the Ducati.

Usually, these dreams happen more often in Jan - March.... obviously waiting for winter to be done so I can get out there!

I had a horrible nightmare about 10 years ago that I still remember to this day.

For some reason my car had become a 1996 White Ford Taurus automatic, with Blue vinyl interior. I was horrified that was my car. Will never let that happen....

Cheers,
Skottoman

Not a dream...as I rarely remember those.

BUT - for a week before I went to pick up my Lotus I couldn't sleep more than a cpl hrs w/o waking up. It was terribly irritating, as usually I'm out once my head hits the pillow, and I stay asleep until the alarm blasts me in the face in the AM.

Luckily I'm back to good again.

I've had some pretty bad ones since I've been away from mine... last one was I hit a rock which tore off the splitter and ripped all the pain off the side of the car like it was latex... weird

I've been having more lotus dreams lately since the last time I drove it was in Oct. :-( The only one I remember my boss was driving an Elise..not sure if it was mine or not.. away from my house. The roads were bad and the back end kept breaking loose until eventually he hit a guardrail. I've had others where I got in an accident but I don't remember them as well.
