    Just wanted to say hi and see if there are many Tesla owners here from Colorado. I picked up the P85D in early March and have already driven 2,800 miles. It is primarily my wife's daily driver, but I drive it on weekends when we head to Breckenridge. It's nice to have a car which doesn't suffer from altitude power loss. The supercharger in Silverthorne has been great. The car has been tinted and clear bra was added to the front, an absolute necessity for any new car in Colorado. I know there is at least one other P85D in Colorado Springs. My loan officer at ENT wrote his loan as well.

    My fun car is a supercharged Lotus Elise. I make it out to the track about once a month, I've modified it significantly. I picked up a small electric version for my daughter but she still needs to grow into it.

    I just met a Tesla owner in Colorado Springs last Saturday, PM me and I'll see if he wants his location/email shared (he's on this website!). I'd love to see your car, I live in COSprings near UCCS.

    If you are free the morning of May 2nd I highly recommend attending the SCCA sponsored cars and coffee show at First and Main (the Imax theater on Powers). I am going to bring my Elise and P85D. The show is from 8-10 am, staging from 7-8. The show is open to anyone. It would be nice to get a few more Teslas, so PM the other COS member and see if he wants to attend.

    Question for the more senior members. How many posts do I need before I can upload an avatar and have a signature? I'm surprised these aren't available to new members. These options are not visible under settings.

    I forgot to post this earlier, but I had an electric vehicle before the Tesla. I converted a Honda nighthawk into an electric motorcycle. It used a perm motor, single speed drive train, 4 RV batteries and two on board chargers. It was a fun project but only had a top speed of 45 mph.

    I have attended that cars & coffee show at the IMAX theater mall many times. I'll make best effort to be there, I was actually wondering when the first show was going to start. I'll look for you!

    Hi, ERP! I am Panoz's friend. We have a silver 85, I will bring it to IMAX on May 2 but don't want to show it. I will look you up. See you then! Mac

    Mac - please bring the Model S, you don't have to let anyone near it if you don't want to. No one at any cars & coffee has ever asked to sit in or touch my convertible. The more awareness of Tesla is good!

    It was fun meeting you both on Saturday. I'm looking forward to the Mt Evans drive.
