Yep. Born and bred in the most ethnically diverse neighborhood on Earth. I park the car in a garage a block from my place. I have a three-deep space so I can park the Evora, S1, and 330xi in a line. It's an interesting garage and thankfully has a beefy security system. Some other guys have a Z8, Carrera S, and a 1923 Rolls in there too.

Do you live in the NYC area? If so, I have to lobby you to join our club.

We went 90mph from Orlando to DC, then down to 80 from there on. Didn't see any evidence of Sandy until we passed Newark. What a mess. Flotsam washed right up to the edge of the turnpike. Other than the airport there were no lights anywhere. Speaking of Sandy, just out the door to hunt for gas.

Sorry, this has nothing to do with a Certificate of Provenance, but someone just showed this to me and since I recognize neighborhoods in it and was asked earlier in this thread where I park my Evora in NYC, I thought some of you might want to know what Evora ownership in NYC is really like:

Seems like you guys in NY don't knowhow to drive, must have crashed every Evora in the city

Also, they obviously had problems modelling the non-metal Evora body. We don't get dents, it all just explodes

Just got my CoP on Christmas Eve... number 12 of 14 2009 Exige S240s for the US market. Special mention: it's the ONLY one in Starlight Black and the only black '09 Exige (Phantom included, of which there were 4) with magnolia interior. I didn't think it'd be this level of rare. I'd like to see worldwide production numbers now...

Too early to get Certs for MY13 production, but does anyone know what import numbers look like so far. Nice to know where this car is trending.

Well, considering that 13' production is ceased due to the airbag exemption still being sought by Lotus, I'd say that import numbers are relatively nonexistent.
