For those of us weary of the constant barrage of bad news, this thread is for those of us, like myself, who want to come on to Elisetalk in a jiffy and get the "good news" of the day.

I can't wait to hear the good news! Thanks, all!

Dave

p.s. Now...there's a chance this thread may fall off the flat surface of the page (and Earth) before it gets responded to...but...it's worth a shot...................... ;)

The good news is that I'm going on vacation on Friday for a month :)

The bad news is my Elise is due to be deliverd sometime this month and I won't be able to drive it until I get back! However considering all the delays it wouldn't surprise me if it still hadn't arrived by next month :rolleyes:

The good news is that in America, sports car enthusiasm is 100 percent tied into our national fabric. I know FAR more "regular drivers" who hate SUVs than those who hate sports cars. In fact, I don't know anyone who hates sports cars. Most people don't fetishize sports cars, but almost everyone can appreciate them as highly engineered (and beautiful) pieces of craft.

Other good news?

The price of gas isn't as high as it is in other parts of the world, and our driving laws and driving policies aren't as draconian as other rich, westernized nations. We have miles and miles of open road situated right next to urban centers. Yes, many roads are clogged and in disrepair, and the smokies are wont to stop us for tickets. But car culture here generally allows us to enjoy sports cars, without shame or bizarre prosecution.

More good news: We live in a country where even our poorest have a real, legitimate fighting chance to improve their lots in life. I think it's amazing that so many of us can even afford the Elise, let alone all the basic Western amenities that (I suspect) two-thirds of the human population would love to have a piece of.

That's the good news!

MSRP increases, wait lists, poor corporate communication -- I don't like it either. I want my non-essential toys as much as the next person. But, jeez, in the big-picture perspective, I'm living on cloud nine.

What color Tintin? Just asking because if it's a color I haven't seen yet, I might boogie down to SVAG while you're gone to take a gander.

I just saw in another thread that my dealer got 4 more cars delivered. 5 down, 15 to go. Looks like they're on the predicted delivery pace.

The good news is: you're fired. The bad news is you've got, all you got, just one week to regain your jobs. Starting with tonight.
At my work, you simply say "steak knives" in response to someone's name, and it's known code for "don't get too chummy with this fella... he's not long for this world."

The good news is that I'm moving to Phoenix to make more money and buy a house. Cali is too expensive. Maybe I can buy an Elise now.
