    Its a picture of the guy laying across the pallet held up by the forktruck. You can see legs in the reflection of the hood. And you can see the forktruck mast on the right side of the glass.

    EDIT: Whoops Nigel's post was on the next page.

    I finally got one for myself! Usually I forget or fumble for my phone (and by the time I get it out, its too late.) My favorite is when someone pulls up behind me, sees the car, then the license, then smiles and pulls out the camera. I'd love to get one of those!!

    Rawlins, WY. Not a candid; he agreed to wait for me to dig out camera.

    Safari 4.13 sizes correctly.

    Uh-oh. I think Nigel just called a Model S "people". Here come the Terminators...or is it the Cylons...

    The Roadster was featured at the East Tennessee Environmental conference. Nice shot of a guy taking pictures of his daughters in the Roadster. Also super cool was drving the Roadster INSIDE the hotel. Trying doing that in an ICE vehicle.

    They scooted up as their butts were a good 6" off the seats. What people will do for a picture.

    Car show at Brownwood, Texas.

    Let's get everybody in there. . .

    Note also the guy scratching his head while he tries to figure out where the engine is! Next time I go to one of these, I need to print up some kind of info sheet to stick on the windshield. Some people were very enthusiastic about the car, while many others had no idea what they were looking at.

    We were stopped at a light one time, and there was a flash, and my wife was like-- what was that!? And I just looked at her and said, "people taking pictures of the car." She's still not used to it.

    Rule #1 of driving a Tesla Roadster - don't pick your nose at a stoplight. Someone IS looking at you...every...single...time.

    The Roadster and the Model X were the hits of the Knoxville Auto show. The Falcon Wing doors must have been opened a 1000 times over the three day show. We were there are part of the Knoxville EV club to promote the vision if sustainable transport. GM helped some by bringing a Bolt, very nice and a Volt while Toyota was test driving the Prime.

    Our Roadster was a big hit at the National Drive Electric Week event in Atlantic City, NJ. I forgot to take a picture when the masses swarmed upon us, but the local newspaper got a good shot of some of the action and I did remember in time to take one pic of a pic taker!

    It was a fun event!

    Our local paper, the Press of Atlantic City was there and did a story. I was interviewed for 3+ minutes. Clearly I do not have a career in front of the camera as a Tesla spokesperson, but I did my best with no prep!

    Here's a link to the article and video:

    Local electric car owners discuss benefits, lifestyle of driving green
