Bingo. Westbound 435 past Nall. Corporate Woods in the center background.

Nice catch!

Older gentleman in the Elan. We smiled and gave each other thumbs up as he went by - he saw the "MY OTHER CAR IS A LOTUS ELISE" license plate holder.

AND... this morning I saw a white late 90ish Esprit S4.

WTF? I don't see a Lotus automobile for 3 months and suddenly I see two within 14 hours...

DOOMED!

(I always wanted to jump on the bandwagon and say that)

Do you always keep a camera on your person? That pic can't be from a camera phone.
It's a Kodak EasyShare DX 4530 - it happened to be on the passenger seat at the time - I was bringing it home (forgot it at a friend's house after 4th July celebrations).

It was fun trying to shoot and drive the 330xi at the same time... and the picture did turn out better than I thought it would. I always think that camera optics will autofocus on the glass immediately in front of the camera and not the subject in the distance - but I guess it worked this time.

Hey! That's me!

Great shot! That really is me. The Elan is my primary car when it is not too hot or too cold. I'm #28 at Behlmann (now Midrivers Lotus). I am supposed to get a test drive Friday at 7:00 pm if I can get there in time. I am taking my son to a Phil Wicks Driving Academy at Gateway International on Saturday. I tried to talk Midrivers Lotus into letting me take it to the track, but no luck. There is a Ferrari track day at the same time.

Incidently, the Elan and an early DeLorean are for sale to make room for the Elise.
