All this Lotus talk has got me thinking, what was your dream car growing up?

I'm one of the younger members on Oppo, turning 18 on the 30th of this month, growing up the Lotus Elise was my dream car. I don't know why, maybe it was just the funky way it looked, or driving the first gen Elise in Gran Turismo 3 (My uncle let me have any two cars on his save file, I chose a teal Elise and a Legacy Wagon), it just always appealed to me. When I was 10 I got to sit in one for the first time at the Toronto Auto show, it was like a dream come true for me.

My family members and old friends always remind me how much I loved that car. I would always say it was my favourite car, and I had multiple models and toys based off it, even a Lotus F1 shirt, though nobody in my family watches F1.


What was your dream car as a child, Oppo?
