I found this emblem like 3/4 inch tall by 5 inch wide........that reads "Handling by Lotus" I think it orignianlly was from an Isuzu.

But with my Lotus eingine, tranny, swap....even the engine is the same as a celiica and all...I would like to acknowlege where the power from my car is from... it has newer shiny black paint and I think this emblem by ok on the rear bumper area.

Problem is that your engine has little to nothing to do with handling...

Last thing I'd want to do is confuse people more about what the car is. Makes for akward conversations when people aproach you to talk about it.

I think it makes for great conversation! When I am out, most conversation start with: "What kind of car is that?" It is like having an unusual book on the coffee table to spur discussion.

I'm more fed up with dumb questions like "how fast can it go" and "what's the top speed on that thing". People think velocity = acceleration.

Didn't Lotus engineer Roger Backer involved on the design of MR2's suspension and Handling....?

Everyone who drives This car could slap that "Handling By Lotus" Emblem on the car.

Cool video. First time I have seen that one. Now I want a Lotus badge for mine!

Roger Becker begat the MKI which begat the MK2 which begat the MK3 aka Lotus designed the Spyder!

Seems perfectly logical to my twisted sense of logic.

I say if the man wants to put a "Handling by Lotus" badge on his car then he should do it.
