DOTS-O-Rama Sunday: Vauxhall VX220S

When was the last time you saw a Vauxhall VX220 in North America? ß®@ƒƒ managed to find one in California, Newport Beach to be exact (we're starting and ending the Down On The California Street DOTS-O-Rama Sunday in Orange County). The VX220 is a Lotus Elise chassis with an L61 engine from The General, and we're wondering what sort of crazy hoops the owner had jump through to get it registered here... oh, wait- is that a temporary tag in the rear window?
