    Alright. . . The video shot of the car sitting just ain't doing it for me. I want you to hang your GoPro on top of that roll bar and take the car for nice long spin. I wanna hear the exhaust note. . . I wanna hear you bang a coupla gears.

    I just went through some GoPro footage but the mike on the camera picks up nothing but wind noise unfortunately! I can't figure out how to hook up a different mike to it. If that's possible at all.:(

    Do you have one? @Ripinator

    I've seen Kenny's and the size of those cars... it may fit, but I think it might strain his neck a little.

    Here's some crazy bastard mixing it up with a Porsche at Nurburgring. I swear he went airborne a couple times.:rofl:

    He's doing laps around in 7:38. Not too shabby considering its almost 13 miles around. World record is 6:40.33 in 911 GT2 RS.

    Nice soundtrack too.:rofl:

    Ya, I think if he wouldn't have rowed through the gears so damn much, he would have REALLY smoked that Porsche. Howling tyres=scrubbing time off.

    I was (un)fortunate enough to own the design cousin to the Elite for a while, a TVR Tasmin. The Elite looks better, in person you appreciate the stance and height. The TVR was kinda too truncated and its rear suspension seemed so damned homemade! Had stupid stepped bolts for the trailing arms through a rubberized mount that were known to break.

    Not a bad looking car. To bad it was plagued by so many problems.

    Here's a nice tribute pic to the founder of Caterham Cars.. he was the guy that twisted Colin Chapman to sell the rights to the Lotus 7, allowing them to be built under the Caterham name. Very Cool!

    Got home from work yesterday and my wife's MINI was parked in a very weird way. The back door of her car was exactly where I exit my truck when I get out after parking it.
    I couldn't help but look in the back through the "barn doors" of her car and HOLY CRAP!

    Once again my sweet heart surprised me! Apparently she got a call from the upholsterer (Weaver's Upholstery in Williamsport PA) that my seats for our '89 Lotus Esprit were ready.
    That little sneak went down and picked them up AND paid for them!
    Now that's what I call a great Father's Day Gift! She is the BEST!

    I can't wait to put them back in! More pics to follow!
