    Would not want to "overwhelm" them with phone calls ... no web-link(s) to any more details ??

    Good turnout with even more Roadsters parked around the corner.

    The rally started at the Menlo Park store and ended at the new headquarters.

    I suspect that Tesla will likely provide a blog entry about this event.

    Nice photos! Thanks for posting them.

    I'm surprised to see so many hard tops. I've already switched back to the soft top all the way up north here in Seattle.

    It's been rainy down here this year. I almost pulled mine off for this morning. Pics to come.

    Couple of iphone photos. Tesla had a photographer and video guy. So expect more to follow from them.

    I counted 34 and a couple were Tesla dealership cars. I'd guess 30-32 owners.

    It was great fun and we got to see the new headquarters @ Stanford. They are moved in.

    Gathering for a group photo, and hiding a couple of ICE vehicles at the same time.
    The lilac one is rather a nicer color in person than in the photos I had seen.

    And it was really fun to be able to drive and look at other Roadsters - it's just such a pretty car!

    Did we ever get to the bottom of who owned the lilac one?

    Great pix... reminds me of this one only more cars: Sunset Drive (SoCal GreenSpeed)

    With all those cars, I wished they'd had gotten an aerial shot & lined their cars up to spell "T-E-S-L-A" :rolleyes:
