We pulled the trigger this weekend and got an Element! All I can say is this vehicle rocks! The big lab (Jake) you see in our pictures is 13 and was having a very hard time getting into our other two cars with backseats. We tried a ramp but he was too nervous on it. He's always ran and jumped into the backseat all his life. Now his old joints don't let him jump into the backseat anymore. But with the Element's suicide doors and HUGE floor we were able to stack up large steady floor pads and let him gently walk into the vehicle. No slipping or anything. Now we can also put our road and mountain bikes in without having to worry about a bike rack. This car is simply amazing!

Anyway, we're so happy we can take Jake back out on little adventures in his last few years and not have to worry everytime we try to get him into the car.

You said you guys like pics...well here ya go! :)

Well I had read that polished metallic was the fastest color so I had to get it.! LOL.

BTW - did you notice the color of my Miata next to it? Even better, my wife's car is the same color as well, just a little darker shade of gray. So we have THREE gray cars!

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Wow. I grew up in Mason City for my 7 yrs of my life then lived in Des Moines until 1991. Went to school @ IA State in Ames.
Cool! I lived there from ages 5 to 8 (1965-8) and remember quite a bit about it. We lived at 817 W. 4th St., zip 50588 - phone # 732-3637. :shock:

Weird how that stuff pops back into your head, eh? :-D
