New to the "Lotusphere" with a gorgeous 2008 Storm Titanium Elise SC. Still waiting for the car to be shipped from Oregon but I want to meet the other most discerning sports car enthusiasts in the world without waiting any more! Hi! I'm finally here!

RE: John's old car!

Welcome! Looks like that's John's old car? Seen it in person when I was in portland!

I just bought it from Ron Tonkin's GT dealership. It was traded in by a Doctor I was told. Originally sold to an Intel engineer new from the same dealer.

I am honored to be so warmly received. I've gotten so much from this group already just reading before I joined. You guys really helped me with my selection decision. After all, who can one turn to about such eclectic matters?! Haw!

John and I are good friends and he maintained that car meticulously and put only the best stuff in it. You bought a great car.

Ron Tonkin must have a warehouse full of those cars. I only ever saw a 2011 also for sale on the website at the time I was drooling over the 2008 I finally bought, Took me a month to make up my mind. What color is yours?

Ardent Red with Red leather interior.

I knew I had to make a quick decision, one week from seeing it to buying it, was afraid someone else would grab it.
