Barrett-Jackson West Palm Beach | Elio Motors Tour

Hello Elio’ers!  This past weekend we were in sunny Florida for Barrett-Jackson, the World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction.  Don’t worry, we didn’t put the P5 on the auction block.  We did, however, show it to the attendees over the course of three days.  This was our third time at Barrett-Jackson in West Palm Beach and the excitement only grows each year.

One #Futureliowner who was particularly enthusiastic to see us was Linda, who drove all the way from Ft. Myers.  She’s been waiting to see the Elio in person for over a year and, apparently, we did not disappoint.   A former New York DMV employee, Linda is originally from outside of Buffalo and loves the fact that she can afford to have one both up north and down here along with the fact that a three-wheeler will also handle well in each location.  See her reaction to the P5 in this short Instagram video…

We love you too, Linda! @barrett_jackson #Elio

Linda was chatting it up in the Elio Motors tent with Patti and Bob from The Finger Lakes area (also outside of Buffalo).  They saw it online just a few months ago, checked our tour schedule, and decided to stay in Florida another week just to see the Elio at Barrett-Jackson.  Patti doesn’t want to ride a motorcycle and was considering a different three-wheeled vehicle (without an enclosure), when her husband found us.  After they both tried the P5 on for size and got the specifics from our tour team, they walked away reservation holders.  We owe a little credit to the weather.  With it being 84 and sunny, our A/C definitely gave us a leg up on our roofless competitors.
