Roll Call... How many of the original 08 owners still on the site?

Just wondering how many of the original 08 owners... those that either put the $99 and waited a year or so... or those that purchase one of the orphans are still around SCOA? Please post so we know who you are.

Can't remember my reservation number but configured Max, our 08 Cabrio on 12/20/07. Picked him up on 05/21/08 from Smart Center Lynnfield, Ma. Still have him and currently he lives in the Ocala area of Florida.

I ordered an 08 but ended up buying an 05 instead. About 3 years later ended up with my 2011.

We ordered our 2008 Passion Coupe with comfort package in late July of 2007. We paid the $99.00 on-line, configured the car waited 50 weeks to take delivery which was on 07/11/08 from Penske-smart, West Covina. The car, now, only has 40k miles on the odometer & is performing perfectly.
I often think what happened to all of that enthusiasm from back in the early days when people just couldn't get enough exposure to their smart cars and owner's could talk for hours about the mods that they did to their cars. In the Fall of 08, Penske smart, West Covina hosted a 10 year anniversary party along with a tour of the local mountain canyons. The participation was overwhelming, the raffle was fantastic, and everyone went home with a t-shirt. All of that is gone now and probably for good. What a shame.

I submitted my order for my '08 within the first minute of the first day of reservation-taking, March 19, 2007. And then I took delivery of the very first 451 in San Diego on January 19, 2008.

I would like to see SCoA add a small gold medallion under each member's avatar for 10 and then 15 years of membership like the Corvette Forum does. Over there, I have my 10 year medallion and will soon have my 15 year medallion.

I have been here since Nov. 16, 2007 and on CsC since Dec. 2006.
