    I am having a debate with someone over what kind of car Sharon Stone drove in the early 90's movie "Basic Instinct".:rolleyes:

    You remember, the flik with the famous police interrogation scene where we all get briefly [pun intended] acquainted with Ms. Stone's, shall we say, pet forest creature that likes to build water dams but luckily for her [and any of her male companions], doesn't have sharp tree bark tearing buckteeth.:eek:

    Whew...can you say run-on-sentence?!

    I knew you could!

    Please respond as it is on TV right now.

    Thank you for participating in this deep, philosophical, life affirming discussion. :p

    it's a lotus. you can tell by the distinctive angles of the hood and front fenders. quite a beautiful car, if i do say so myself...

    to be more specific, i believe it's a Lotus Esprit SE.

    Cool.

    BTW, Arn, that very last post on the SJ & Intel post fiasco a few hours ago was a result of my evil twin embodied by the soul of the universal Butt-kisser.

    in the words of Oliver North...."I have no recollection"[of said events].:D
