Description:
Lotus Europa. I really dig these wheels. And with a MR layout, manual transmission, 126 HP strapped to about 1500 lbs. of car, and a fully independent suspension arrangement, I think I would really dig driving this car. Once again, only under the stipulation that it would run until the end of time with absolutely no problems whatsoever.

The first year this car was out, they were working so hard to keep the weight down, that it didn't even have windows you could roll down. It got more civilized as time passed but remained one of the great fun cars of the era.

I always thought these looked KINDA like El-Camino type vehicles... I KNOW it's not a pickup, I know the engine is back there.

My father once told me a story of a friend of his who owned a Europa in the '70s...

He took my father for a ride, and went to a mall parking lot that was pretty-much empty, and had a circular road around the entire mall... with ditches on either side of that road... so there he was, going around that circular road, and eventually he got the car up to 100mph, and accidentally hit a curb, the car got airborne, spun 180 degrees, then landed back on the ground, screeching to halt, facing the other way.

My father said he had never been so scared, yet had so much fun at the same time.

I like that front lip. So... low-tech and so useful at the same time.

I always thought the rear end of this car looks like an inboard motor boat...
