No... not good, there's not that many members out here in the mid-atlantic. Sorry to hear about it... hang in there, maybe something will work out?

Good luck,

Cade

so have it shipped out via enclosed transport. perry used Intercity through HRM and I'll be using them along with Dana (also on this forum). Dana's car and mine will be picked up no later than friday for their trip across the country...

Dude!

This thread is about 10 days too late!!!!

If you had only told me! I went by LOA two Sundays ago and peered into the window and what did I see?!?! My car! Ardent Red, biscuit interior, sports pack, hard top! Just like I ordered! And mine is due any day now. Its got to be mine, right? :) So Monday morning I called LOA and said 'Is that my car?!?! Is that my car?!?!' Alas, they said 'No, its somebody elses'. I was sad. Upset. Frustrated. Dejected. :(

If only I had known that it was your car and you couldn't take it, I would have swapped spots in line with you. By the time mine gets here (Thanksgiving), you could have had a turn of events and been able to grab the Elise!

Oh well, such is life. Let me know if you're interested in the above scenario...

if you dont mind me asking, what are you paying for shipping from them?...I have spoken to DCNSX about his car but perhaps i change my mind.

I'd jump on it but my deposit is non-refundable by contract and it might be a real hassle to get out of it - but I'm going to check.

****,
Are you sure he's taken delivery already? I think it's still there, he said it's located in Southeast US?

The car is still at Lotus of Atlanta. I'd like for it to go to someone on EliseTalk, but if not, a local (non-Lotus) dealer here wants it.

I did pick up my boss' yellow Elise last week and drove it back through GA, NC and Southwestern VA. So there will be another Elise in the mid-Atlantic (and I will drive it occassionally and probably track it next Spring).

$1,675.00 which includes an $80.00 fuel surcharge. There are other companies that offer enclosed/insured transport, but Intercity comes highly recommended

Call LOA. And forget about MSRP. Be prepared to be asked to drop your drawers and grab your ankles. :D

Anyone interested call me by this weekend. Either it goes here to an EliseTalker or it goes to Ebay. Unless my boss decides to get it and send it to Puerto Rico next Spring (where he's from). Of course if he buys it maybe I can track it here before he ships it out of the country.....
