    Nice! That has got to be the cleanest your car has been since last fall! Just got my winters off yesterday and a Ranger did it in my driveway while it was snowing out! It has since melted here but look what it looks like in Huntsville today....

    It's not officially over until your Roadster is back on the road!

    I actually had the Roadster out for a spin a few days ago. We had a day with 26 degree temperatures! The next day it snowed...

    Calgary doesn't count because it can snow there every month of the year...

    I know it has been a couple years now since they were first unveiled, but the sight of a Signature Model S still gives me a chill up and down my spine.

    Very nice, Doug_G.

    Looks beautiful, Doug.

    Amy chance you're making it to Montreal for the Guinness Record breaking EV meet?

    If so, you're welcome to charge at my place for the trip home. I have an HPWC at [email protected]

    Yeah, I have a meeting in Montreal tomorrow, so I'll stay for the EV meet. I was thinking of dropping by the Hotel Mortagne for a bite to eat and charging, but I'm big on having fallback options - and I've needed them on more than one occasion. That would be a really great fallback - much faster in fact! Can you PM me details? Thanks!!!

    The 4 inches of new snow that greeted me this morning would seem to disagree with this thread...:tongue:
