Lotus Elise photoshoot #2

Winter took a break this weekend, so I got out again. I finished breaking the car in. After 600 miles, I finally got to use the 2nd cam... holy #&^$ it's crazy. There isn't a lot of power, but it piles on FAST.
After all the fun, I cleaned up a tiny bit and took some pictures.

Is there irony in bringing a British car to Vally Forge?

Re: Lotus Elise photoshoot #2

Nice snowy pics,Loving the Elise in the 5th pic,off topic question,how hard is it for you to get into the car and how tall are you?Something I was thinking about after watching Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson taking a long *** time to get in and out of the Exige.

The one thing I love more than English cars is English girls.

Love the colour.

Re: Lotus Elise photoshoot #2

Thanks guys. The pics are almost all from Valley Forge Park in PA. Maybe George Washington camped here with all of his men not to keep an eye on nearby Philly, but because it's so nice.

The rest of the pics are from the mall area in King of Prussia, which is next to the park.


As for getting in and out, it's not easy. I'm 5'10" about 145lbs and I've got it down to a smooth move to get in. Getting out is a bit less dignified, but not nearly as bad as Clarkson.
My fiancee, at 4'11", finds it much easier to get in, but no better to get out. It's tough to get out without a steering wheel to push off of.
