Had a visitor/forum member stop by the garage today for the commute to work.

Things we learned:
-Chrome Orange attracts more attention than Starlight Black
-2 Lotus attracts more attention than 1. It requires pedestrians to do a "double" neck snap.
-Sometimes people just don't feel like moving even if there is more than enough room for 3 Lotus across to fit past a parked car.
-Seeing an Exige in front of you or in your rear view at 8:30 am is a good thing any day of the week.
-Having a neighbor with a Lotus is awesome.
-Having a neighbor with a Lotus who also works adjacent to you is awesome.
:D

*Warning nothing toooo special happens here other than seeing one Lotus from another*

from my experiences with driving in groups many times from 2-20 cars, the first car always got the most attention, this held true even if it was a black car...not sure why...

Ha that was what we were thinking when at a redlight. I'm going to lead the way through a different route later this week. So we'll test that theory out.

I posted another clip so you could hear more exhaust/intake combo on my car:

If you thought that was cool you should of came to LOG29. It was even cooler with 200 Lotus cars led by a Police escort in their seized Porsche as well as a small fleet of Lamborghini's and a couple Rossions.

Then taking a group of Lotus and a Rossion 5 hours away to run the tail of the dragon after LOG was over.

I always wondered how people get police escorts. Memorial Day wkend they blocked off a major highway for the "Rolling Thunder" crew (bunch of motorcycles) and they had A LOT of police escorts.

You just pay them. :shrug:

It's funny how once you pay the police there are no laws. Whatever speed you want to drive, go through all the red lights, etc.

What he said. ^^^ It was a blast at extra-legal speeds caravanning to the Barber Motorsports Park for the concours on Saturday. BTW, for all those who weren't there, what's your excuse? You missed a fantastic event. :up:

It was great to meet Keith (and many others). And Keith's pet model at the track, too. :p
