Denver Metro Owners Registry
 
Gents,

Forgive me if I've missed it but I thought we could use a Denver metro area owners registry. For anyone from say north Fort Collins all the way down to south of Pueblo and everywhere in between. The goal is to better connect the owners in the local area that would be hitting C&C, Track Days, etc. As I met an owner this Saturday but have completely forgotten his name I'd like to connect with him and this registry would help facilitate that.

So below please post the following (or as much as you are comfortable with)

Name:
Car Type/Year:
Intended use:
Miles driven per year:
Mods:
Best contact:
Part of town:
Car-specific Trivia:
Picture of car:
Picture of you:

Thanks, looking forward to seeing this grow. Depending on the level of response I'll create a Google Docs Spreadsheet to store the information.

EDIT

I figured since I can edit posts forever with my admin powers I'll do us some good and update the roll call at the top of the thread so names/aliases are easier. Maybe that's just for me, who knows...

Edited my post!

rosscarlson 09-26-2013 09:16 AM

Thanks for updating, I really do think that's the all time coolest Lotus mod I've ever seen. You guys did such a great job designing and building it - I still think you should consider marketing it, I'm sure there are others out there that would greatly appreciate this.

I remember your first weekends when you didn't have it and had to use your signals for point bys. Not exactly safe to use only 1 hand to drive, shift and point by!!!

Yeah, the shifter both made me safer and more dangerous at the same time :evil:

Late to the thread but here's my 2010 Exige S240. I bought it in April to replace my 2005 Elise which was lost in an accident.

Pic of my old Elise:

And the new Exige to replace it:
