    bonnie1194 started an excellent thread a while back for pictures of people taking pictures of Roadsters. I thought I'd inaugurate such a thread for the S in honor of this great tradition.

    (Okay, not exactly random, but at least it's a start!)

    Okay, so this is one of those things where you think, well of course someone on the internet is doing it, but still, I didn't expect to see a thread like this here lol.

    EDIT: Cool, I never noticed those rear speakers before. That might be the first picture of those.

    In fact, *I* had never noticed those speakers either, at least not until I posted that picture and saw them in there!

    Does it count if you take a picture of your Model S with a mirror behind it so you're taking a picture of yourself as well? ;)

    A while back (took me a while to get around to posting this) my S was in a photo shoot for a Tesla supplier. I guess they either wanted custom shots or they couldn't get the stock photos they'd want from Tesla.

    I keep wishing I could get shots of people on the freeway. The other day a guy made about 3 full revolutions around my S by changing lanes and speeding up and slowing down to get shots of me with his smartphone. But he was too fast brining it up and down every time for me to get him in the act on mine (not to mention we were going about 75mph and I was afraid of wrecking my beautiful car).

    Wow! Nice one.

    I was stopped at a light in S #70 at Vermont & 6th in Los Angeles when I looked over and this guy was waving at me. He immediately pointed to the Tesla logo on his sweatshirt and then whipped out his cell phone! If you're on here, say hello! (I would have stopped but had to be somewhere.)

    The car has a growing fan base way beyond those of us who own it or are waiting to buy it. It will get bigger and bigger, especially among the young who appreciate what a game changer Tesla is for their future.
