And this is why I have convertibles instead SUVs

Along the way we faced a electrical system dilemma (not roof problems) as the fuel gauge read 3/4 tank, AND the EMPTY warning light came on. How to diagnose? Trust the fuel gauge and keep driving? OR fill it and see how much it takes? Since option 1 might

And this is why I have convertibles instead SUVs

I took the Lotus out this morning for a drive - the first one in 3-4 months due to a variety of maladies (me, not the car) and I remembered why 3 of our 6 cars have soft tops. It's cool, crisp and beautiful at the moment, so I came home to pick up Mrs C a

Alfa Romeo 4C.

In the world of small Bombas, there are few ones: The Porsche Cayman, the Audi TT, the Lotus Elise, the Alpine A110 and the... Alfa Romeo 4C. And the 4C is not the less interesting. With a body which reminds the most beautiful creations from the Sixties.

A guy just rolled up and parked this next to me. 🔥

I drove an Elise - early early model - just after production began in 1996 and it was wonderful. Of course in the middle of England it's a different story than on SoCal freeways, and since I have the two Elans I just haven't migrated to the newer models.
