Tire Wheel Car Vehicle Plant

Ok, don’t laugh but I’ve only had my 06 Elise for 2 months. I’ve never hit the 2nd cam until this afternoon! I’ve never heard such a sound before. It sounded like a million hornets haha. After reading about how the engine temp dictates rev limiter/shift light etc I decided to let it idle while I got the tires to the correct pressure. Hit the highway on-ramp and DAMN!!
The picture is my stepdad who I bought the car off of. He passed away last week. He bought it new at 72 years old and did all the maintenance and upgrades himself. He loved that car. RIP Pops.

Cool! I used to work in Washington PA at Fairmont Supply for the late, great Bill Todd II.
Nice! The picture was taken at his Buddys place in Pancake, Grimms machine shop. Pops worked at Washington Steel for 25 years.They lived up off Malone Ridge Rd. Small world!

Hello G man 60. Thanks for one of the best threads going and your dad gets my heart. I bought my second Elise at 76 and I believe that driving this car on country roads is the best inspiration for life one can find. God bless us all. View attachment 1306647 View attachment 1306647
