Question Name this car quiz.

Okay, I took a picture of this car at the auto-x today, who can name it?

Although I believe the owner took the liberty of customizing it himself, I expect some of you with across the pond experience to recognize it.

I agree, an Eclat.
Front engined, 2+2, rear drive.

Normally, they look OK. This one has been abused. Poor car.

You are correct about the Lotus Elcat.
Like I said, the owner took it upon himself to "customize" this one.
He must have had about 20 toggle switches on the dash board.
I sincerely hope those were not on the car from the factory.

ROTFL! Joey it is!

I was at the auto-X where Mike took the picture. I remember seeing it from the front and thinking "cool, what is this?" Then, I got around to the back and just felt kinda' confused. I can't figure out what the person who built that spoiler was trying to do. If you could see it up close it looks like it was made out of cardboard and soda straws. I figure it has to be functional for something because it sure as hell isn't attractive.

Mike, we've gotta' ask about the spoiler if we see it again.

Joey!

Thank you for the correction, it is just that every time I look at it I get very dizzy, thus the spelling error.
