Hello all!
Just joined the forums, do not have a lotus just yet but in the next year will be looking at buying one (have to finish school). Are there many Lotus owners in Northern Indiana/ Southern Michigan area? Ive already graduated from Purdue, and am currently taking classes at Duke. Father is the President of a British car club in South Bend Indiana and they have a car show once a year. This is where I discovered Loti, and have wanted one ever since!

Welcome. I'm new here too and also looking to get one by the end of next year. I don't know much about the area you mentioned but I thought I would say hello. I'm looking to get an Elise, you?

Probably an Elise as well. Id love to get one in the next year but it just depends on whether or not I am able to find a job once I am done at Duke haha. What state do you live in?

Massachusetts. Not to be a downer but plan on two years. The job market is awful and if you are more conservative in your expectations you might end up pleasantly surprised as opposed to bummed out. The only reason I am so sure I will afford one (and nothing is set in stone) is that I already have two jobs and I am in the process of also going into business for myself. I only need 10 clients to give up my other two jobs and 15 to get the car. Those are pretty conservative numbers so I am sure I can manage it. I am a personal trainer, what is your field? Depending on that you may be able to be more confident than I am recommending in that one year goal. Regardless, good luck. Hopefully we will meet with our newly acquired Elises at a show late next year:D

I am going to Duke for law, and have an "in" so to speak, so I should be able to grab a job.

Awesome! An "in" is imperative these days. Almost every one I know in law who is employed right now had an in. Those that didn't are competing for para-legal positions. With that you should have your Elise in no time!
