    I went to the Toronto Auto Show yesterday and was seriously regretting it until I saw a 2010 Tesla Roadster Sport in very orange. Sure enough Tesla had a small booth there. If you live in the GTA it's worth checking out. (especially if you've never seen a roadster in person before)

    I also found out that you don't need a ride in a Tesla to get the "EV grin". It's such a beautiful car i couldn't stop smiling. I got to meet Hans who is the manager of the store opening in Toronto in a few months along with Jason (i forget his last name) who works for Tesla in california. The Tesla booth was getting a ton of attention, which hopefully will translate into sales down the road.

    Here's a few pics of the car (amongst my other auto show pics).

    Either that was a misstatement or you are like me - painfully wanting something I can't justify getting.

    Yeah, I think that's what mnx is trying to say ( a period would've helped, too ).

    LOL there was supposed to be an "until" in the middle of that sentence... going to fix it now.

    I'd love to get a roadster but i can't justify it... But with regards to what I said, I was regretting it because when I got there, none of the cars I really wanted to see were there... Firstly I saw Toyota (no FT-86 concept), then Lexus (no LF-A) then Nissan (the only GT-R they had was a rally car from targa newfoundland which was behind ropes)... At least Audi had an r8 there that you could climb into... The auto show was also very busy as it was holiday on monday making it difficult to get near the nice cars.
