At the next Carlisle gathering, Al will lead an early 6 AM and sunset exercises (rain or shine). Goal of the 4 days will be for each to lose 30#. 2016+ Mazda Miata is one of the lightest cars now available at 2300# - Lotus probably has a lighter model (if you can squeeze in it). Ha, no spare tire, no jack, and not even a lug wrench. Front fenders, hood, doors, and boot all aluminum (as well as aluminum A-arms and under-chassis cross bracing.)
The hood hinges can be made to look great though with polishing and a few lightening holes!
