You mean age now, or when we think we'll be a for real genuine Elise owner ? Most of us have some aging between now and car arrival date. 53 now 54 or 55 when car arrives.

PS - since birthdays are part of the data we submit at registration on the forum, it would be interesting to see what kind of data Randy could pull with a simple graphical query???

Whaddya say, Randy? :D

When I went to the dealership to order my car, there was a guy there who appearred to be in his 70's or maybe even older that was leaving a deposit on one, just based upon an article that appeared in the NY Times.

He was sitting in the Esprit they had in the showroom to see what it felt like (they didnt have an Elise there at the time), and I told him that it is a lot harder to get into the Elise. I just hope he isnt like all the other senior citizens around here that drive 20 miles per hour under the speed limit in the left hand lane with their blinkers on and head sticking out over the steering wheel.

I have an uncle who is about 85 or 90 that I am going to let drive my car, but then he used to race Indy cars in the 30's and 40's. I think he said he used to race Dusenbergs too, and they trailered the cars and traveled from city to city across the country back then. His brother who was ranked higher than him in the standings raced at Indy and died in a crash there, so he gave up racing right after that, much to my aunts happiness.

Like cerven, I'm 56, but I'll surely be 57 (June) by the time my Elise is here. I might be 57 before I order!

But, hey, it's not my fault time goes this quickly. I guess I've just been young longer than most of you guys.

31. Old enough to appreciate a car of this caliber, but young enough to exploit it!
