    You'd think somewhere on their site they would mention WHERE it is?

    I would guess it is at the Art Center college of Design.

    From there website,
    "No educational institution has had a greater impact on the automobile industry than Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California."

    Of course Where in Pasadena would be a nice addition.

    Boy was it hot, as in sweltering. Some great cars with a smattering of air and sea toys. Tesla had Orange #28 and the working Model S there. Even Space X had a faux Dragon capsule on display.

    The Roadster was driven and the Model S was trailered to the event but the car does run under it's own power to position it in place.

    Good to see the Model S in person again in a real world situation. It's still a bit big for our needs.

    2009 Model S? Why not just call it a prototype, it won't be out until 2011 at least

    Glad to see that both Models were represented at the event. Also, seeing the Model S that close to the roadster gives me a better prospective of the size of the roadster.
