*Memories from my first post-college job for #throwbackthrusday *

Back in 1990, I took my freshly minted engineering degree and went to work for Delco Moraine NDH at the General Motors? Milford Proving Ground. Somehow I got really lucky and got assigned to work on the ABS programs for the Lotus M100 Elan and the Esprit X180R racer. During the spring and summer of 1991, we had one of the prototype X180Rs at Milford and my colleague Arnie Spieker and I would take it out to Black Lake several evenings a week where we set up a cone course and work on modified calibrations to work better with the racing tires. I was lucky enough to spend some quality time lead driver Doc Bundy and the rest of the team including Lotus engineer John Miles. ?
