  1. Ebay link pulls up (or attempts to) item 9999999999

    Correct item number is 252369881206

  2. Yeah, it's a 27-year-old version of a 45-year-old design and it's a far prettier shape than almost anything you can buy now.

    Now, mind you, it's still a Lotus, so it's a good idea to have a C5 coupe around so your wife can follow you around and pick up the stuff that falls off.

    1. It's also a good idea if you're going to drive around in one of these to be somewhat shorter than I am.

  3. The Cougar and Imperial look interesting.

    Buy one or the other along with the Lotus so you'll have a classy parts chaser!
