How many APE owners active on AOC?
« on: December 12, 2015, 10:05:02 PM »
It's become very apparent to me after two years of APE ownership how inactive the vast majority of owners are. So I was just wondering how many APE owners do we actually have on here?

Yep one here. 14 plate supersport. I suppose the relative inactivity is due to the more 'exclusive' numbers of the evo's on the road. About 450 evo compared to circa 5,000 of the 500. Must admit I am a bit lazy in making many posts. But will try to represent us in more meets next year.

There are just over 300 AGP,just over 300 APE and about 130 Supersports. Yes very rare cars but still enough to make more of an impression. I would make the assumption that when buying such a rare car that the person would be a car nut and search out fellow owners. I have been at meets with rarer cars and seen more attending. I was looking at the cars of a VXR8 meet recently and there was even a Maloo present. A car that is probably only registered in single figures. From all the major events I've attended I always see the same cars and faces. Even if I was to make a wild guess and say I've encountered 100 Abarth Puntos in groups/clubs and events. That would still leave roughly 700 cars unaccounted for. Out of the last 50 Supersports like mine I have literally only ever seen another 5 or so. I have owned rare cars before but never one with such an inactive scene. Maybe most owners just think of them as regular Fiat Puntos. They dont realise how rare they are and/or have no interest in cars and just wanted something "sporty".

I know of about a dozen Punto owners who are active and come to events.

Yes that's not many when you think about it, but it isn't bad when you consider how few of us there are..  Plus what we lack in numbers we more than make up in personality ;D
