    I'd be happy to but I'm all the way in back in line at the 13k reservations :)

    At what point do you think there'll be enough cars in the SF bay area to make this possible?

    When you guys break the record .... and I am sure you will ... you have to make a point and break it with 250 miles of travel. Let's see the Leafs do that !! :)

    I know we have more then 25 in the Bay Area alone right now. Heck, the very first 8 for the most part stayed in the Bay Area IIRC.

    I live in MD and I don't have my S yet (Jan/Feb, so sez Tesla) but I would *love* to be a part of the record breaker if could be done at Laguna Seca!

    Does it have to all be the same model?

    They all just have to be any flavor of Tesla Model S to keep the record clean I believe... :)

    I don't mind the date but Christmas Day maybe hard for most. A 50 car Modes S line from San Francisco to Gilroy might be a fun run and shows off the range perhaps? A beautiful 280 to 101 run??

    We may have to wait until Q2 next year anyway, the more Model S' participate, the better!!

    I'm open to anything really, looking to see how much traction we can gain and Model S' together in one electric storm. All lightning, no thunder... :D

    I like it! I'm in the Bay Area and have a pretty easy schedule (retired) so, unless I happen to be on a road trip, I'm in.

    I think if we are going to pull it off in a meaningful way, we should really beat the 225 number. That means we have to wait a little longer for more Model S deliveries in California. I can't think of an easier way for us to get into the record books... :)

    Even if we can't hit that number however, it would still make a heck of a statement and would be great to meet all of you and your 4 wheeled friends as well!!
