    There Must be more Illinois Elio visionaries? Checking in #61 here in Wheaton Illinois. I will add this quirky unusual ride to my already head scratching limited market collection. A 1970 AMC Gremlin, A Gen 1 hyper mile Honda Insight, and oh so beautiful but rare Honda Rune motorcycle. An Orange Julius tri-Elio will fit right in with this collection of misfit toys! Hope to see others out there!!

    Hi Blackbird. I noticed no one has welcomed you so I decided I will. I am sure there must be more people from Illinois but obviously I'm not one of them. I hope you enjoy the group. I live in Oregon but tend to wander around the forums simply checking to see what is going on. I learn some interesting things and run into others that I don't understand or am not interested in. I have found some fascinating stuff in my spare time exploring old postings and not so old posting. So, Welcome. and Enjoy. :-) Z

    Hi Blackbird from Elwood. I only did the $100 tees shirt. Not sure what color I would pic Orange maybe with some black strips added later. I know one other person that is all in. He Showed my wife the Elio and she told me to get rid of the scooter.

    Hey Dan. Doesn't matter what your contribution amount is as long as you are a believer and of coarse not in a hurry! Lol. I would have to agree with your wife, loose the scooter the Elio will give you more than enough cool factor. Welcome aboard the Elio forum!

    I am from Illinois but not from a major metropolitan area. The closest to me is in or going to be in Joliet, IL. Totally worth the drive to get it and I can't wait. I am "All-In" but at a $250 level so I don't really know what my number is since others can still get in ahead of me. :) I can't wait to get mine and I hopefully see this peppering the streets. I also know there is a guy that I know personally who is buying two of them. One for himself and one to use in a raffle as a fundraiser. How's that for a visionary?

    Hi Steve and welcome from southern Oregon. The fellow you know is truly a visionary. How fantastic is that. I also can't wait to get my Elio and am currently saving to up my reservation from $100 to $500. It is all so exciting. This forum is a great place to get lots of information, ideas, meet new people with the same goal, share laughter and generally pass the time to Elio ownership. We also have a terrific support staff. You have your work cut out for you if you read all the stuff here because there is lots and lots and lots of it. Read, discuss and enjoy this journey to fulfilling our dreams. Next year in an Elio! :-) Z
