This Stop – WM Phoenix Open!

Hello Elio’ers! We spent last week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. If you’re not familiar with the event, it is a golf tournament hosting pros such as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Brooks Koepka (this year’s winner) and more. It is an immensely popular sporting event in Phoenix that drew more than 500,000 people over the course of the week, even with Super Bowl Sunday also happening in the next city over.  In fact, Saturday set an all-time single-day record in professional golf history with an attendance of 189,722. Lucky for us, and those in attendance, we were the first thing all the spectators saw right as they entered the event. A definite show-stopper that drew our usual crowds and questions…only this time the most popular question had to do with whether their golf clubs would fit in the trunk. As a matter of fact…
 The answer is yes.
We had the privilege of meeting futureliowner Mark M at the event.  Mark has been a real estate agent for over 24 years in the greater Phoenix-area.  He first learned about the Elio at last year’s Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale.  He sat in the P3 silver prototype, asked questions, then went home to do some research.  It was the Elio’s unique design and fuel efficiency that prompted Mark to claim his place in line.  Mark says he spends 90% of his driving time without clients and “what a great way to get my company name noticed!”  Mark loves the looks of the “creamsicle” and couldn’t resist another visit while attending the Phoenix open.
We also couldn’t resist asking the Chick-fil-A cow to hop in the Elio.  Although we may not be on the best terms with cows since we put their flatulence in the press (seriously, we did), he loved the three-wheeler. It would help him moo-ve a lot faster with speeds of over 100 mph, that’s for sure.
