I was having fun at the track this weekend and my car's big sister showed up. I had to take the photo op. It seems like very low odds of having the same color and stripes in the same place.

Actually, for you the odds turned out to be 100%.

I hate pics like this because it reminds me how much more I like the Exige body over the Elise.

How about running into the same make/model/year/color, only 3 blocks from your house?

Well, yes... but those '06 Exiges are so common, that probably happens all the time;) Three blocks, that is crazy.

I actually thought it was pretty cool to see a very similar car. He had great taste in color choice.

I have yet to see another Club Racer but I am friends with another owner on FB
And the funny thing is they were the most common of any other color combination/livery for that year! There is statistically a better chance of two Club Racers showing up at the same location than any two other identical 2008 Exiges.

3 Blocks..............Try 100 yards. I thought somebody stole my car but they were both 07 Exiges.

No big deal. Here in Central Wisconsin you can't swing a dead cat without hitting another Lotus... just kidding.

Here anything that's not a pickup is considered exotic.

There have been 4 Elise cars in my one goat town. Two Chrome Orange, One Storm Titanium and a Red one with black racing stripes (which are tire tread patterns). One of the Chrome Orange ones was owned by someone who worked in my building. The two orange ones have been sold within the past couple years. When I ran across the guy with the red car, he doubted I owned an Elise. I showed him my keys and fob; that settled the issue.

I once ran into another LT'er in the middle of downtown Chicago while I was there on vacation from Aus. Pitty I didn't have my car with me.

No way! There is a red one the exact same way here. I haven't been able to catch up with who owns it but my friends send me pictures of it all the freaking time. Odd that they both have tire tread stripes. I wonder if it's the same car.

That rare 2005 Bordeaux Red Pearl? I have seen at least 4 different ones in the Twin Cities.
