My two dream cars, in one shot!
That looks like a great place. If you'd have driven up Route 1 a few more miles you could have hit our favorite in Perkins Cove, Barnacle Billy's.
And on your previous post, you had plenty of room on the shoulder to get up there and say hi. I'm sure the MS driver would have let you in
VA visitor on the UWS today. MS 85 looks good on this bucolic block (87th/CPW).
No pano! That's a first for me. Both at the service center and in the wild. It kinda looked out of place. The white on the back of the roof kinda reminded of the intentional coverings on the Model X mule sightings. It just didn't look right. The rear window looked small.
Almost forgot, I had a random sighting yesterday morning while in the presence of a pack of Teslas. Going from Cars & Coffee to breakfast at cracker barrel I spotted a gray Model S two lanes over. All that was visible to me between other cars was the triangular badge on the front fender. Had that owner been paying attention, they would have spotted 5 in a row - Btrflyl8e's Blue Persuasion, FLDarren's Copperhead, my silver Lightning, Great Dane's white P85 and (didn't get his screen name) the other guy's brown Model S.
Something similar happened last month when I was behind Btrflyl8e (she's always in front). I spotted another one who was completely oblivious to us. Sadly, not everyone thinks that sightings are as special as we do.
I see your crew likes to travel in a pack! That must be a grand sight!
Is all fun and games until SOMEONE honks at me the NANO-SECOND the light turns green (ahem). You know what an open pano is useful for? A very visible middle finger salute.
Including my wife... She now claims I'm like a newbie winning Bingo for the first time, and that my arms are waving and my mouth is hollering. Well... she's exaggerating. A little, anyway.
But... by the time the hand appears above the pano, wouldn't you be too far away for anyone to actually recognize the message?
Not when it's another Tesla (LoLRick)
When I owned a Delorean, many of us from the East coast would make a bi-annual trip to a national Delorean car show, usually held in the mid-west somewhere. During one trip, I think we had 22 Deloreans all driving down the highway, convoy style. And we'd maintain formation when passing cars.. I usually had a rearward position, and the sight was amazing -- we looked like a 22 segment stainless steel snake weaving around slower traffic. I have a photo somewhere, I'll have to dig it out. For us, seeing a Delorean was an everyday experience, and for other folks seeing ONE on the road brought out all the cameras, cell phones, and thumbs up. But to see 20+ cars at once on the highway? Wow, that was special for even us.
That sounds awesome! I like to lead the pack because I love looking in any of my mirrors or rearview camera and seeing all those beautiful cat's eyes!
Ohhhhhh, NOW I get it!!
Hank, that is awesome!! I think we can sweet-talk the mods for a quick OT for that pic!
But I was the one that got the finger, not Rick. I was the one behind Btflyl8te. Rick was behind me.
You were simply in the line of fire.
Not very l8e-like, if I may say so
No, but I have to man-up sometimes, hangin' with my Tesla boys!
Did cellphones have cameras back in the days of Delorean?
Considering I sold my Delorean last year, yes. And the trips I mention were in 2014, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2006, etc.. also, yes.
Cell phones had cameras long before smartphones hit the market.
So... still in our East Coast trip and the good folks of the NJEAA had invited me to participate in their EVangelism EVent at Sustainable Morristown Festival Earth! event today (Sunday)...
So, we're the California Model S in this event.

However, on the way to the event, I went to Mass at St. Matthew the Apostle Church at noon (Randolph, NJ) and after the Mass was treated to spot a green Model S in the parking lot...

Would've waited around, but had to make the EVent (which started at noon)...
So, drove into town and spotted a Blue one going the other direction on Speedwell (toward Randolph) as we headed into Morristown. I waved as the person did a doubletake...
Took a picture of a Red One (looks like a Service Loaner) at the Morristown Green...
