I'm visiting some MR2 friends down there, among them, Tony Grasso, a fellow hardcore Lotus enthusiast. He was an '89 Esprit Turbo. Anyone down in the Peoria area want to meet that first w/e of May? Post in this thread, or PM me for contact info. Would love to meet some new Lotus owners...

Peoria, Illinois and Phoenix, Arizona? As they say on Sesame Street, "one of these things is not like the other". :)

Peoria is near Phoenix, about 15 minutes away. I'm looking for people in that area.

Where are you driving from? We've got a good collection of Lotus here in the Phoenix area. I'm sure that something could be arranged.

Not driving, I'm flying from Buffalo. That w/e there though I will be driving a 1992 CR Toyota MR2. Tony has his 89 Esprit Turbo. I'd love to make arrangements to meet up with some of you guys. One of my favorite things about being a Lotus guy is when I go out of town to a new place, and get to meet new owners.

Might be... something to do (see)

If I did the auto-x, I'd have to do it in my buddy's 92' MR2. I would have no problem with that, haha. Where's the auto-x? I'll let him know, maybe we can get reg. for it.

I live in Tucson, about 100 miles from Phoenix area. I used to live in the Phoenix area and know some great places to let loose on the throttle. I have no problems coming up for the day and hangin out in my Elise. As the date approaches, lets work it out.

Possible suggestion... If you're meeting up on a Saturday, there is a meeting of all kinds of cars at the Pavilions in Scottsdale from ~4:30pm-7:30pm. Perhaps you can have a group meet somewhere and go for a drive earlier in the day, and afterward, head out and make a Lotus presence together at the gathering there; among all the exotics, collectibles, hot rods, classic, etc...:cool:

Sorry, but there's too many people confirmed on the MR2 side to change now. One of the guys coming is a manager at the restaurant and has kind of blocked off an area for us there. Would you guys be willing to come out after? Forgive my ignorance, I don't know how far Scottsdale is from Mesa.

Sorry about that, I've been away.

Looks like there's more Lotus guys in this area than I thought. Too bad none of them want to come to the Monthly Meet I'm having on the 26th!!
