    Heigt of a Lotus Europa?

    Anyone know the actual height of a Lotus Europa? The reason I ask is that a BS artist at one of our local sports car gatherings claims that he once drove a Europa underneath a semi trailer while driving on the highway! Even it it would clear height wise I think this scenario highly unlikely. :-)

    I have a 74 Twin Cam. And while I don't and would never drive my car under a tractor trailer, I have seen some trailers that are high enough that the car would fit under.
