stunning, thank for sharing

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Some of the roads out there are breath taking, I used to live near Castaic before I got into 'handling' cars - I would LOVE to take an Esprit / Elise there now. Dunno if it is the case now but they were mostly deserted roads when I was there - that reservoir is awesome as well with the funky lights at night :thumbsup:

Ive lost count of the number of times ive watched you shock the hell out of that Gallardo owner.

Can i ask what exhaust system your using? The sound has on a number of occasions actually given me goosebumps, totally incredible..

Yes they are and they are still deserted.

Thanks. It's a custom 2.5" mandrel-bent straight exhaust (no cats) with 4" Magnaflow tips built by a local exhaust shop.

Had a feeling they were straight through. Im not sure i would get away with that over here. Legal levels are around the 80db mark for street and i bet theres no real way of driving it quietly either. Truley is one of the nicest sounding cars i heard though.

I must admit that I expected all the roads to be wide and straight but, with the mountains and canyons that's far from true. I was living in Leona Valley when we had that bad rain a couple of years ago and I had to use Lake Hughes Road to get to and from work each day (In the TT. Esprit was not on the road at the time unfortunately). About 30 minutes from end to end

I was certainly awake when I got to work in the mornings. Sometimes hit traffic, sometimes it was clear most of the way. I was using it at its busiest times, though.

Do you have hi-res versions of those. Might be good for the Esprit Calendar 2008?

I do have the first 2 in 1024x768, the third pic was cropped from a bigger one.
