    Even with all that awesome machinery, the Roadster was attracting the most attention.

    I feel like I have learned enough about the Roadster to not need to ask any more questions.

    I was just there to appreciate it and a lot of other nice cars on display.

    That sure was a nice color of red on the vehicle next to the Roadster and the gull-wing doors looked cool.

    A few weeks ago Steve Saleen left Saleen and is now working with CHAMCO which is importing Chinese vehicles.

    At the show I said to Aaron, "I have one of those!" ??? He gave me the look of "yeah, right!" Then I pulled my little crystal Tesla hologram out of my bag - and he responded, "Yes! You do!" He then let me sit in that gorgeous car! :eek: Can't wait to take a test drive in a few weeks. ;D

    Lucky you! Glad you made it to the show and had a chance to get a closer look at your future car.

    As you may know, the EP2 showed there was an engineering prototype, and your car is likely to have a more comfortable improved interior.

    Does anyone know if the Roadster will be making an appearance at this year's Palo Alto Concours d'Elegance?

    That's really too bad. Your car would have been truly unique.

    I didn't officially attend. I was biking by after 4pm and checked out some of the cars that were still there. Got to sit in an R8, which was pretty cool. Didn't see the Roadster, but searching Flickr, it looks like VP10 and VP13 were there. I'm actually a little annoyed. I asked over at the Tesla Motors blog and checked their events page and was never able to get any confirmation that the Roadster would be at the event. :mad: Seems like last year the Roadster's appearance was widely publicized. This year, nothing. (Of course last year I was in the middle of a 24/7 experiment.) If I had known the Roadster was going to be there, I would have made more of an effort to attend (and not worked on my thesis all day :wink: ).

    Finally figured out how to embed photos (using Flickr, thanks Doug).

    Damn, must've missed you! That's my RR hardtop down the line. Got to chat with Steve (of bracket frame) a bit, and had the hood and trunk popped open for the lookiloos around noon for half an hour.

    It was an interesting juxtaposition to be tail-to-tail with the Ferraris in the corral.
