Hello from Boston

I am looking forward to seeing some of you in our '01 360 in upcoming events. This move was quite strategic, as it gave my wife her own fun car so she doesn't have to ask to drive my Esprit V8 (ever again).

Weleome. So let me get this straight...you gave her the 360 and you are stuck with the excellent Esprit?

How does one become a wife?

Thanks!

Just ordered a tow hook front plate mount from fellow member, Greg Calo, to avoid the state troopers. It was so easy to put on that my friend with a CS bought one as well.

(Still wish we didn't have to put them on, though...)

I like driving the F1 so far, the throttle matches on downshifts are very convenient, but it does take some getting used to from a pure manual...I still forget to keep my foot on the brake in order to shift into 1st after a stop light...resulting in some unintentional show-off revs.

But it's much easier for someone driving an automatic to transition to -- reducing the possibility of someone killing my Lotus (Renault) manual gearbox.

Yes, Greg's front license plate faker-outer is great for any exotic owner...a must.
