I fondly recall signing up for a test-drive of a Tesla Roadster in Bellevue. This was held in the parking lot of a Sears store that had been closed for some time. I didn't know anything about VP or other VIN numbering schemes at the time, but now I'm wondering whether anyone has a record of which car(s) Tesla brought to Bellevue. These test drives were available only to folks who had put the $60,000 down payment on a Roadster, but you were allowed to invite a guest (which I did, of course). As far as I recall, this was before any of the Roadster 1.5 models shipped. I assume that it was a validation prototype, but I really don't know. Does anyone know?
