    Actually, I was pleasantly surprised by the 8 in person. It looks far better than the magazine pictures, and my pictures, show.

    I think the new NSX has been a disaster at least in the US, dealer offer $40k off retail. I read a report that in 2018 Audi has sold close to 1000 R8's Acura had sold about 150 NSX Ouch.

    Default Katie's, 03/09/19

    This morning, I took my Elise to Katie's for the first time this year. We had snow last night, but the streets were dry when I left home, and the temperature as above freezing - 34F, in fact. This is what passes for good weather here, lately.

    It seems like, when it's cold & wet & snowy, almost all the cars that show up to Katie's are German.

    Amazing! We had a cool, clear Saturday, and the biggest Katie's by far this year! A few Lotus, and several Lotus people there today, the day before St. Patrick's Day! The cars filled up the lot, and went all the way around the square. Lots of variety, too!

    Chuck S. and his Westfield joined my Caterham. I had never seen a Vanderhall three-wheeler.

    A pretty good day for Lotus at Katie's. In addition to my (freshly detailed) Elise, there was also an Exige with carbon doors, which I had never seen, as well as an Evora.
    Steve M. returned with his amazing Lotus Omega! (No Sevens today!)

    Default Genius of the Week

    I have to wonder what made someone do this to their car. The wing... look at the angle on it! Note that the exhaust has been re-routed to the rear valence, flanking the license plate. Finally, the 'speedster-style' windshield appears to have been done by using a Sawzall on the pillars, and the (I think) plexiglass windshield. With the windshield frame no longer providing any support, I have to think this 'Ultimate Driving Machine' has the chassis rigidity of a grilled cheese sandwich! Kudos!

    It rained through the night last night, but stopped 20 minutes before I left home to go to Katie's. As a result, Cars & Coffee got a late start, and was limited to not much more than a full front lot. Still, there were some nice cars there!

    Your friend has a nice looking Bugeye, my first car was a '61 that I bought for $275 so I have a soft spot for those. Thanks for sharing your photos Bob.
