    As the owner said , "having rebuilt it to original I cant afford to race it"
    He still won his class tho' !!!

    I made a mistake before when I said the Elan was my least favorite Lotus, I had forgot about the Europa. WTF is up with the back end. that thing is hidious~!

    You have to remember the styling era and the practicalities of keeping the back end down on a car so small and light
    It is a REAL Lotus race car, just with all the usual Chapman issues and using a doughnut drive joint as a stressed suspension component was one use too far !!!!

    Besides, there was the Eclat .... actually not bad in driving, but just naff 70s and boring looking (imho)

    Just saw my first new Nissan Micra, an I gotta say... I wasn't aware that you could really make the design worse, but that's what happened. The front end looks generic and exchangable, while the back is all kinds of wrong... just a bulbous mess garned with senseless creases.

    The most powerful engine is interesting though.

    A 3 cylinder supercharged petrol engine.

    I think it runs on Miller's cycle (not sure though).

    I'm really looking foward to tomorrow... I'll make a feature about a vintage car/motorbike rallye in our region for the radio station where I'm working which means that I'll be driven around in cool pre-war sports cars :3
    I will, of course, take a lot of photos for you. Wish me luck (if I screw this up, my boss won't be happy )!

    Don't remember me -.- I stopped working there because they didn't pay me enough while constantly working overtime under completely unfair conditions. Apart from that, I need to get practice in media-related work because that's required for the studies I want to do .
    I can say already that it's MUCH better than my previous job, although I don't get much money there, either... but screw that. I like this job, but I will only do it until my studies begin (should be in October).
