where were we when this happened??... catching fish in longkangs? :D :D :D :D .... (maybe your mum and dad were not even born?)

btw, there was one sports car (for track only) named Lotus 23 which won races in the 60s with only a 1600cc engine... this is a significant race cars coz it seems the Elise we see today shares the same design philosophy with the Lotus 23.... (racing history trivias... kekeke)
