Ouch... Well that blows.

On another note, pugs are almost as ugly as chihuahuas

How in the hell does the car just fall of the lift? It must have been pretty stable since they were already working on it (one tire is already off)

They probably had the lift points too far forward, but enough so they thought it was balanced (while the tires were still on). Once they pulled the tires off, all the weight was on the back.

They had my car slip a little on the lift once while I was standing there. I almost had a heart attack! It happens more than you would think, someone had their car fall off a lift this past summer at a local tire store. They paid to have the car fixed but honestly I would not want it back after a drop like that.

Yep.. a car would never be the same after something like that.

I didnt know that the underside of a Lotus was a big piece of sheet metal, Its kinda cool so that it really never get caught on anything. I would be so mad, but it doesnt look like there was alot of damage going on.

Considering how rare Elise's are and how expensive replacement parts are, it's probably not that the damage was extensive, but the cost of repairing it was more than the cost of replacing it.

holy shiz they totalled it.
love this line...
they had a wrecker attached with a winch to the front end so it wouldn't come crashing down. After it cleared the lift, the front end swung around and crashed into some tool chests

The Elise is so bloody light, a small gust of air came through the garage and blew it off the lift.
