    Hi All:

    Received a text from Marian that said the following:

    Hummm... Too many people ask about it and I catch even more looking at it in the parking lot. Parking it at the end of the parking lot like I always done - my perennial door ding avoidance protocol - does not seem to help much either. It is a true magnet for finger and nose prints on the windows. :eek:

    On the other hand, we'll see how it does during the upcoming winter. ;)

    You got one Manuel?? What color? I'll be on the lookout for it!

    I think the word "Want!" just about covers it. Somebody near my office owns one and tends to be driving around when I go for my walk. Maybe when they come out with the "budget" model I'll actually have a shot at one.

    Get in line!

    I suspect that if they can hit target (although Tesla's pricing track record has not been good so far...) when they open reservations, the system will go down very quickly.

    Give me a "200 mile" BEV and that's 15,000 miles of 16,500 primary car miles per year it could cover. Add Tesla's planned Southern (~Kennebunk/South Portland) and Northern Maine (~Bangor) Superchargers and that'd take care of other 1,500.

    "That's the second one this week."

    If I lived closer to Boston, it would be "That's the second one today."

    No Model S is boring! I think I've seen a white one around town, but not silver yet.

    Yesterday evening, I was in line at a traffic light (with my engine turned off, naturally) and there was a black Model S right next to me. The thing is, I didn't realize this until the light turned green and they pulled away. I usually see them at a distance, and I recognize the front and the back - but not the side up close. :)
