YAK Car Pic of the Day

This one’s definitely from the department of “you don’t see one of these every day.” It’s a Lotus Europa, one of about 9,300 which were built from 1966-75 in England. And yes, it’s short — all of 42 inches in height (only 175 inches long, for that matter, and a mere 1,320 – 1,570 lbs depending on which model).
Developing by racing genius Colin Chapman, the Europa was highly successful on the race car circuit. I can’t believe this one was sitting recently in the parking lot of the Lewiston Fire Hall. Read more about the Europa here.
