In a city where I see all sorts of exotic cars regularly, I wondered how long it would take to spot my first Tesla Roadster at random. Finally, this morning, on my walk to work, a little, black Roadster passed by on Little Santa Monica Blvd. That's my first. I didn't recognize the driver, a man in late middle age, wearing a sport jacket and no tie.
And I was encouraged to see another electric car, some kind of NEV, a few cars behind the Roadster.
Given that I am in a non-exotic area I wonder how long it will be before I see one at random. Granted I am in a LARGE city so that might help but I am also on the East coast ....
VP21 parked on Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC (Cleveland Park area):
I really love this last photo. DC is my home town, and the best movie theater was always The Uptown (one of the last great theaters... a single huge screen, as opposed to a bunch of tiny screens once multiplexes became popular). Consequentially, I spent a lot of time around there as a kid. This area is right next to the Cleveland Park Metro station and walking distance to the National Zoo.
Anyhow, seeing the Roadster in this context oddly makes it seem more real and yet simultaneously surreal. Connecting my former East Coast life with my current existence on the West Coast. For me the Roadster is definitely a California icon, so it's strange to see it in my old stomping grounds.
So goes California...
The world loves to be deceived.
