Many people want a Lotus Elise. But many of their loved ones usually say something like, "That isn't a practical car."
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, a picture says it all.
Clearly, if you are dedicated enough, a Lotus can be practical. Come on, if it can carry a keg, it can definitely get your child to school. Picking up the groceries should be no big deal, as long as they will fit in the passenger seat and footwell.
The bottom line is, with enough dedication, a Lotus can be a practical car.
Let's just be thankful the keg isn't tapped. As everyone knows, drinking and driving is dangerous.
