If everything works out, I will be there at about 11-12 myself. It would be cool to meet up. If only we had our Elisetalk polo's (hint, hint)tidalwdave said:Anyone want to meet up there on Sunday? I'll probaby be there some time just after noon.
Jeff Stearns w/ Dimmitt replied to me just now confirming that the car will be there (no news really). Seems like a good guy. He made the comment that my strategy should be to become friends with a Dimmitt depositor to be able to get close to the car.tidalwdave said:I've been in touch with Dimmitt and the car is scheduled to be at FoS this weekend, then at the dealership for the week after.
Why couldn't you be a hot chick and I could say you were my girlfriend?

edit- so whaddya say Tidalwave, can you introduce me as your brother?
I don't want to guess and speak for Dimmitt. If I were you, I'd contact Clay Curtis - [email protected] , 727-797-7070. See if you can set something up. I'd tell him up front if you have a deposit with another dealer.zcar222 said:I am heading down there on Friday and staying through monday. You guys think there is any way that I would be able to get near the car - preferably in it. (considering i have already dropped a grand on the car, i would like a chance to see how I fit in it..)
The FOS is Sunday only from 10a to 5p. Dimmitt will have the car available for appointment showings next week, so you would need to give them a call to set that up. I don't think anyone will be able to drive the car. I'm hoping they do at least fire the engine up at the show.elise4me said:As it happens, I will be in Orlando from Sat through the following Friday. Am thinking about driving across to Tampa to try to see the car in person.
Can someone who has been to festival of speed in past -- can you describe events/highlights and what day(s) would make sense to attend?
In terms of getting a chance to see the elise up close-- I am guessing best to go by the dealership next week and see if I can get an up close look and maybe sit inside for a fit test?
