It only took a 1 way flight, a 4 hour trip to and from a remote branch of my bank, and a 1075 mile drive home, but I'm now the proud new owner of a 2005 Storm Titanium Elise! Thanks to singlefin for taking good care of her while she was his, and vulcangrey for trading off highway segments to get her home. I would also like to thank coffee, cheerios snack mix, vitamin water, frappachino, power bars, and dr. pepper for making this possible.

Here are a few photos I took on a brief pit stop in Cove Fort Utah as the sun was setting.

Very nice pictures!

What does the rear view look like from inside the cabin? That looks like the GUT wing, but I would think that would significantly block your rearward visibility. Do you have a picture showing the view?

Here is a view of the rear wing (taken on our drive back to CO Saturday), it is a GUT wing, and it does block alot of the view, though it is good at blocking headlights.

The tint is 28%



and here are some more shots I took

I bought my 2005 SY elsie the exact same way! 1 way ticket, remote bank, and the thrilling first drive home! Bought mine in LA and took 2 days to get her home. It was such a great experience and leaves a lasting memory! Very cool- congrats on the purchase.

looks like a fun canyon! Excellent for the Elise. Is this the canyon just outside of Mesquite Nevada as you duck into Arizona for a 10 minutes and come out through Saint George Utah? It looks very familiar as I drove this brining mine back from LA

What a great adventure - congratulations -

NOW - let the mods begin :D

One of the best things about the Elise / Exige is the joy of making it your own one of a kind dream ride. A never ending process, by the way...

Best Wishes -

Thanks everyone!
tko211-yes, that's the same canyon!

I've already got some small tweaks and ideas to make her mine, plus I have about 1100 miles of bugs to clean off her! ;-)
