"...my fault..." :D Yeah, they're 'experts' at that [yeah...she's not here, so I can say that...and she doesn't know how to log-on to the site anyway.] ;)

...But I gotcha! Sharing checks [well...my check.] for 33. I think I'll keep her. :) 'All my stuff's here anyway!' (Little 'Barenaked Ladies' ref there...It's the name of a band for anyone over 60...quit thinking dirty.] :)



[Must be a record for "most smilies used in a post" :rolleyes:. But " o_O ", is my favorite!]
I'm over sixty, and know the band well. I even like Iggy Azalea. I like all genres of music from the big band era of my dad's day to hip hop. Having kids and grandkids help, but I can remember my dad hating rock & roll back in my teens, asking how can you listen to that noise,and never wanted to be that guy who only like the stuff he grew up on.

I'm with you on the music...I remember the look on my Mom's face the first time she heard "The Pusher Man [Steppenwolf]"...thought she was going to have a stroke! Bach, to Glen Miller, to Nelly [he lives 4 miles from me], all the way to some "head banger" stuff. Listening to Blue Oyster Cult as I type this....Yeah, Had to worked today, 4th beer into it.

What's everyone's thoughts on the forward opening hood?
While it looks cool it seems to me that it makes servicing more difficult. I'd rather have the standard style.
***(I'm sure there's other forums here where this is discussed at length)***
I definitely do not qualify as a car guy but my impression is with the wheels being outriggers, this is a better arrangement for access. :-) Z

I've owned vehicles with both styles and don't much care either way .... by necessity the hood of our Sportchassis is hinged in front .... I like the fact that (unless I'm backing up really fast) if the latch breaks on a hood with a front hinge, it can blow open going down the road ..;)..

I am not sure, Jim, but did you mean to say it can't blow open going down the road? :-) Z

Quick question for the guys that got to attend the "show". Were the majority of people around you just 'curious', and happened to be in the mall shopping, or already knew about it, and just wanted to see it in person [like us]?

Judging from the people around me while in line and some overheard conversations I think most people came to South Park Mall to see the Elio. A further observation is that the mall shopper walked by, took a second look and continued on his/her way. JMHO
