:clap: Glad some of you are lucky enough to be getting your cars. More photos and impressions would be great when you have the time to break away from all your driving. :D

I had taken it off already. I wanted to ride home with the top off, so we put the hardtop in the other car.

Is that you in the photo? Why so glum? :D

I can't tell if you are a really big dude or if that is just one really small car. Probably a combination of both. I think I need to take a break from the forum for awhile. These posts showing people picking up their cars is making me sick to my stomach....

Congrats on your Elise, the red is stunning.

Ha! I was trying to be cool. You know I'm cheezin' hard on the inside. Yes that's me in the pic. I'm not a small guy: 5'10, athletic 240. But no fitment issues at all.

With that serious look on your face and the way you have your hand on your car NOBODY better mess with it! What a day to remember and enjoy! It must be tough to have to take it easy while you break everything in.

When I daily drove my Europa years ago, I found that getting in/out gets much easier after you get used to a certain routine. But when I first got that car, it was pretty tough. I guess that's part of the "lotus position".

Man... given that ardent red carries no extra charges, looks better than I expected, and is a bright beacon to slovenly SUVs, I might have to put it back toward the top of my list... :eek:
