    My gigantic friend vs. my tiny car

    I have a good friend named Everett. Everett is gigantic.

    I have a Lotus named Elise. Elise is tiny.

    This is what happens when they meet.

    This is consistent with my experience in an Elise.

    And as I recall it's the same with a Tesla Roadster.

    It was only half as bad if the top is off.

    Yes, that's because the Tesla Roadster used the Lotus Elise chassis.

    I remember seeing a Roadster for the first time and thinking, "Hey, that's so much like an Elise".
