This little beast showed up here to see and be seen. It is the new Lotus Elis and this is the only one in America. It attracted a TV crew and they asked me for my comments. I said I drive a Lincoln and would need one for each foot.


This is a very spartan car. It is stripped of all pretense of comfort and is basically an exquisite Lotus body with a rocket ship engine. All the fit and finish is what piles on the do-re-me so it costs a modest 35K.

I drove it and it broke my hair!
