Has anyone attempted to assemble some statistics on the Elise owners? I don't care about how much money we all make; irrelevant. I'm interested in the nitty gritty. Age ranges and the likes. For example, how many females have been the purchasers? With a couple of exceptions, it seems as though most of the owners are male. What's the most common age bracket of an owner? Perhaps it's stupid, but I'm curious.

I think the one thing that has struck me for a while now.... is the range of people we have, in almost anyway you want to measure them.

My age: 46.
Interests are playing volleyball, coaching soccer, racing cars, music, internet communities, home theater and movies. I also collect DVDs and used Hoosier tires.

In my spare time, I invent or design stuff.

I'm female, 25, and working towards my PhD in geology.

For fun I disassemble my fiat(s) (and occasionally succesfully reassemble them), performance driving, climb volcanoes, long bicycle rides, building things, playing piano, and chillin' with friends.

Duh. I mentioned nothing about myself!

Female, age 45. (Ouch; tough for a female to admit!)

HAPPILY married with 4 kids.

Realtor / Broker; own my own company.

Spare time? What's that? I have a zoo of my own, so I'm with OneFastLotus. Dogs, cats, rats, ferrets, rabbits, Cockatoos and little birds too, Python, and so on. My Cockatoo, Pompadour, has had a couple of rides in the Lotus so far. Now that really gets me some strange looks! Big white bird on shoulder of driver, or perched on his car seat. I cook, read, write, play on the pc, shop, and buy expensive cars on impulses. Lately I've taken up driving for no reason at all, going no place in particular. Hmmm...

And thanks Allan!
