    The local PBS station did a great segment on last years Electric Vehicle Conversion Conference in Cape Girardeau Missouri . I drove 500 miles in 24 hours in my 2008 Roadster, to be part of the convention. It is a 30 minute segment and is one of the best and most balanced coverage I have seen about electric vehicles.

    Cape Girardeau Missouri is also the home of EVTV and Tesla fan Jack Rickard.

    If you want to see the video and many shots of GREAT conversions here is the link http://www3.wsiu.org/television/infocusarchive/playermp4.php?record=502

    Jack has one on order (but probably would not bring it).

    Thanks for date correction, I was looking at last year's itinerary, oops.

    I understand with the core focus being the EV conversion crowd, the Model S wouldn't be a main highlight, but it would be cool if some attendees (or hosts!) have them there nonetheless.

    My Roadster was at the 2011 conference and I gave MANY people rides including Jack's mother who then told Jack she wanted one
    . I and the car were well received and we shared many common interests.
