Luckily for Lotus Motorsport’s Stephen Wright, he didn’t hear the words, “Give me your boots, your clothes and your motorcycle.” from the Governater at this years Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. He was checking out the new Lotus T125 with fellow car fan Jay Leno.  With livery and branding of the Exos Exoperience by Interstate, the car caused a real stir on the green.

Also in attendance was James Montalbano, a New York based typographer who designed the Clearview Highway font used on road signs throughout the US.
