    Damn those Subaru's must have great brakes huh?

    Bet it was the same guy who Raced and beat a Ferrari from earlier this month...

    S4S? I thought it was a 97 at first, but the front end is pre 97.

    MY OH MY. I AM NOT THE MOST AVID OF LOTUS FANS, BUT I CRY THINKING ABOUT THIS MOST EXPENSIVE OF ENGLISH JACK STANDS.

    AND IT IS SUCH A PUNY CAR! MY FRIEND HAS A MID 80'S ESPIRIT THAT DIDN'T LOOK OR FEEL SO SMALL NEXT TO AN IMPREZA. LOOKING AT IT MAKES ME THINK THAT IT IS SIMILAR TO WHAT A 2/3RDS SCALE DIABLO WOULD BE.

    Ouch, that is a real shame, I wonder how that happened, really, doesn't that strike you as odd? Was the Subaru going in reverse or just slam his brakes and the Lotus went under?

    The Esprit looks great with the Maya chrome wheels (minus the Subaru on it's hood, of course).

    NO. IT IS NOT ODD. THE HOOD ON AN ESPIRIT IS QUITE LOW. I HAD MY 964 PARKED NEXT TO MY FRIEND'S ESPIRIT, AND THE 964 LOOKED LIKE A TOWERING GIANT IN COMPARISON.

    Thats becuase the fiberglass is enforced with Kevlar.

    p.s. thats a real shame to that sweet Esprit!
