On Sat. me and three other Lotus owners went for a mountain canyon drive up over the top and down to Park City Utah for lunch as a group. We were with the Utah Ferrari / Exotic car group. Yes we were invited and yes we were treated great. This group just goes on drives and has no bias as to what car you drive. Everyone is treated the same and no annual dues or elections. Just plain all out driving fun and lunch and oh ya great scenery. What a blast. 27 cars in all many of them Ferraris. :clap:
Wow. Great pic Chazzer!:clap:

Looked at her, freshly detailed - under the car cover - in the garage, as I left for work in my Wrangler. I did adjust the headlight height, installed a switch under the dash to disable the DRL's, and order an exhasut from Plack right before I put her away though:D

I drove mine to work and parked it. Then I went for a long drive accross the bayside bridge in St Pete, to meet my hot wife for lunch. I then hopped back in the car and drove it back to work. Now looking foward to the drive home. This is my daily driver.
Pix of the hot wife or it didn't happen!

Brought it home from the service center after a leisurely drive around Redmond, still a half dozen things to fix but closer to having all the issues resolved.

let my nephew barrow the lotus to check out the exhaust changes(Larini de-cat and Lotus sports exhaust) While he was out testing my Wife and I walked down to the local ice-cream shop. While ordering I heard a very nice exhaust note fly by the ice-cream shop, but did not get a look at the car. A guy in line said a "awesome Ferrari" jus flew buy. He added nothing sounds quite like a V12 at WOT. 5 minutes later my car comes flying by again. Same guy leans over and says "nothing like a Ferrari"rotfl

About a hour later my nephew gets back with the car and tells me it sounded good, but really did not get the chance to "open her up all the way";)

What really was cool is I have never really listened to the car from the outside to get the full effect of the sound. I can't imagine How the Plack edition exhaust sound. Probably like a F1 race in your town.:shift:

Awesome :clap::clap::clap:

Plack at WOT is insanely loud. But sounds just absolutely wonderful. Everything your ears would want in a sports car... In the canyons & hills it the definition of eargasm. The best part of my day is starting her up.

I took the family to the zoo. Arrived 30 minutes before the gates opened to get a parking spot up front. Was immediately approached by a car guy who wanted to chat about Lotus, F1, and his classic Alfa Romeo.
