    True, but good news for Elio is that they do not need our support. When they needed our money, they got it. Now they need bigger money and that is not us. If they were really interested in our support or opinion, they would actually keep us in the loop.

    Standing behind a vague SEC gag order is complete BS. They can share progress if they want, especially if it is to the public and not to particular individuals. They could update us on the status of ElioCoin, where the engineering prototypes ended up, what progress was made, etc. It is not insider trading if they make this information public. If they were not allowed to say anything about their financials then we would also not know about the 2.5M they got from Overstock or spinning up ElioCoin at all.

    I know this is a pointless rant to the choir, it just bugs me that the people who were there when Elio called, the early reservationists, the IPO funders and early evangelists are treated like we had no part in Elio's progress. If there is no progress just say there is no progress, do not lie to me about not being able to say anything due to some gag order.

    Okay, rant mode off. Time to go look at some cat memes... :D

    Back in the day when Elio was on tour, the trolls would run out to the venues and malls and complaint to them about elio. They did everything they could to sabotage this adventure. Not because they were frustrated about the long wait or the production dates being push back, but out of jealousy and hate. That was back in 2014. Remember the ghost bids before the IPO in June 2015? Countless attacks warrantees caution. Elio must keep this close to the vest. Sure we 'want' to know stuff, but I don't think we 'need' to know, specially since all information can and has been used against the project.

    I don't think things have gotten bad or dire or any other acronym we choose. Things aren't proceeding on OUR preferred timeline but OUR timeline was never really important. Things haven't exactly gone on according to Elio's timelines either but still... Time keeps on slipping, slipping... into the future...

    I am an adult and knew fully the risk I took when I hit send on $1,000 for what someday maybe ELIO 8019. What a bore life with no risk not taking a chance on something new and different. If I had lived my life taking the easy path, the safe course it would have been boring. It also would not have allowed me to live as I do now. Stay on the porch if you can't play in the street of life. Anyone putting money toward a car not even in production, had to know it was a long shot. I am surprised they are still trying.
    If this is the worst lost you experience in life , great you learned a cheap lesson. Know the risk , don't BS yourself when making choices.

    "8018", really. If I knew it was going to take 6,000 years I would have ordered earlier.

    My interest in the Elio years ago was predicated on the promises .
    < $8000
    84 MPG
    Fully enclosed , full featured 3 wheel vehicle

    The Elio is certainly an "and" vehicle for me . The same way a bike or classic car would be .

    If they ever go to production , I am willing to forego the tasty mileage , BUT not the price point .
    Personally , I don't see the value in this auto-cycle beyond 8 grand . Further, there is a whole section of their website that quantifies
    a $7400 MSRP . So, do it already .

    The ELIO caught my interest. I am the type that never had a problem heading in a different direction than others. risk kept my blood flowing.
    Still does but in different ways today. I still hope to have my ELIO before I die. Get mine to me. It it is not prefect I am ok with that . I can work with it. Till then I will have fun with the bikes and sidecar. Paul forget big production number. Put a few skilled folks to work and start delivering a few. They will market them self.

    If Elio were really serious about building cars they should build a few thousand and distribute them to the first few thousand reservation holders.
    The sooner that is done, the sooner the logjam will be broken, and the sooner Elio could be in the black. Also, the sooner I will get mine.
    Franky I wouldn't mind building my own, if that's what it takes.
