    Found: Lotus Elise in Vancouver

    I was out with my cousin-in-law last night, showing him around Downtown Vancouver. While looking for a pub we came across an Elise parked on Robson Street. I have to say that this is one of THE most beautiful cars I've ever laid eyes on, and I really, really want to drive one.

    Damn, nice. Usually there is porsches, lambos and ferraris down at robson but it is rare to see a Elise. Great find.

    First time I saw one, I was amazed by how low it really is. Photos always make them look kinda tall. I think its because of how the tail looks.

    I saw (and heard) one the other day downtown in TO. I must say the sound coming from that thing was spectacular.
    i was waiting on a moment, but the moment never came. all the billion other moments, were just slipping all away. i must have been tripping, we're just slipping all away. just ego tripping.

    I saw it again today. Parked on Robson street across from where it was last night. I also saw a Bently Flying Spur. The New one. Already. I didn't think that I'd see one so soon, but here it is:

    That Elise would be damn fast, it's got semi-slicks

    I was on Robson street earlier today, although I didn't see anything too cool other than a couple of RUFs and a '69 Challenger. Still haven't seen an Elise on the streets!
