East (SF) Bay EAA Chapter
Life with a Tesla Roadster
Saturday, June 26, 2010
Attendance: 24 members
Paul opened the meeting with discussion
Gordon shared news clipping of how EVs are covered by the media. Lots of coverage about the Tesla/Toyota venture with the NUMI facility in Fremont. Interesting that the Wall Street Journal didn't consider this to be news-worthy.
Then our main speaker, Dan Rondou, owner of Heatsource and and solar contractor, stood up and presented his experiences with the Telsa Roadster.
He explained about his history with EVs, from electric toys to EVs displays to leasing of the EV1 and then the Roadster.
We went outside to admire the craftsmanship in the car.
At the end of the meeting there was a drawing for 3 lucky people to receive a test ride in Dan's Roadster.
As usual, we ended up in the parking lot to look at the various EVs members drive.
