    Confirmed date and time. Can somebody edit the title?

    I'd like to get a small group of every currently available street legal EV for a short TV spot in San Diego. So far, we have Tesla Model S, Roadster, LEAFs, and just me and my Rav4.

    When: Feb 3, 2013 @ 7am

    Where: KUSI studio (TV channels 9 and 51)
    4575 Viewridge Ave
    San Diego, CA 92123

    If you're interested and can do it, let me know. We'll have breakfast after at a nearby restaurant from 8:30am - 10am. There are two L2 chargers within walking distance.

    DO NOT GO TO HAMBURGER FACTORY IN POWAY!!!! This event is in San Diego, near the 15 freeway and Balboa Ave.

    Breakfast will likely be at the Studio Diner, 8:30am to 10am.

    It's a local television channel in San Diego. The why is promotion of EV's to the unwashed masses. Sorry, breakfast only for me after getting up that early !!!

    Oh yeah, the BGC on TV!

    And where did the Hamburger Factory comment come from? Who said they were going there?

    Should be able to get a decent amount there. There is around 80 Model S' in San Diego area. Not to mention another 20-30 Roadsters.

    It's not specific because I don't yet have confirmation yet. I was offered "any Sunday in Feb" and I picked two that I'm available. When I know, you'll know !!!!

    I will be happy to shuttle you back and forth in the Rav4 to get both cars there.

    I generally have LEAF electric car meets at Hamburger Factory, so somebody (on a different forum) just saw my name and assumed that was the place. It's not.

    #'s the service center quoted. That was a week ago though so who knows by now. They always seem to have a "collection" of cars getting delivered.

    Ugh, just realized that this is Super Bowl Sunday, and I signed up for the Cardiff Kook 10K run that morning.

    Sorry Tony!

    Thanks. My neighbor has a home business, and they regularly have the KUSI crew out to do a similar promo at her house, as they did this morning.

    See ya then.

    You could probably show up as late as 7:45am, but the cameras roll at 8am.
