I used to have a Lotus Europa in college. Once it started making this loud noise from the back when going around corners. A friend and I took it up to Highway 49 in California and started looking for the source. Couldn't find it, so we took out the trunk basket and he climbed inside the engine compartment while I threw it through some corners. He found a suspension part that was the problem, but Highway Patrol found us with him hiding in the engine compartment at 60mph. He yelled at us and told us we were idiots. He asked where the car was made and I said "England." He had owned a sprite and said it was nothing but trouble, so he let us go with a warning. On the way home, the left rear wheel fell off the car.
