brings back my memory of a Lotus spirited drive event we had in Eastern PA a couple years ago. Someone brought their Miata (the nerve), but somewhere along the countryside, we found the Miata off the road and into the pasture/farm field! He just couldn't drive like the rest of the Lotus in the group. Was it the car or the driver, i'll never know, but I sure had a big smile on my face passing by.... :lol:

lesson learned? NOTHING drives like a Lotus

My son had two different Miatas. One was supercharged. They were surprisingly nice sports cars and cheap to buy parts for (which were readily available at Auto Zone). That being said, they didn?t come anywhere close to the handling of a Lotus.
