    There are 3 generations of elite to me; though it paints them with pretty wide brush and they don't line up with the poll options.

    BH&T '97-'00 (Before Hinges and Tethers)
    H&T '01-;17 (Hinges and Tethers)
    AH&T '18-- (After Hinges and Tethers)

    To me the tethers on the hood, deck lid, and rood flaps with the hinges on the hood and deck lid was a HUGE part of what made an Elite an Elite, as it was the detail that jumped out most visually. So I divide it up this way.

    To me, if it doesn't have the hinges and tethers it isn't as desirable as an elite; old or new.

        2011/2012 Elites are the best year for detail and packaging.

            Really just loved the clamshell boxes that were last used in 2012. They might have had their issues but they really presented the cars in a premium way.

                I find most of my older cars are the elites that come in the clamshell boxes. And there is a special feeling i get when I open everyone of them. 2004 to 2012 is my favorite era of elites because of the clamshell thing and all the extra details. The weight of them in your hand is just hands down major compared to what we get today.
