Last night that row was full. There were 3 red ones out of 24 total.
I remember when no one wanted the 1500s......

Me :). Why do you think I counted?

The discussion was how "most Roadsters are red"

I disagreed (and still do)

Look at the BAT discussion, I mention being here with my 1500

Actually I was the one on BaT (Dat2000) that wanted to take the over at 3. I hope to collect that adult beverage. Maybe next year at the Glen? Cheers!

I wish I could say Im happy to hear that I am right, but honestly I love the variety and would love to see more colors other than red or silver.

I didn't get to spend a whole lot of time with you guys but it was awesome seeing all the roadsters together! I grabbed a couple pics while I was hanging around that I can share. I don't know who's car is whose and I hope you don't mind me and my daughter posing a bit. Maybe next year I'll have a roadster of my own.

Thanks Dave for the shirt. I will wear it with pride!

We had a wonderful time at our first Roadsters at the Glen. Thank you to Dave & Linda, Joe & Suzanne, George & Sherry and everyone else that put in so much effort to make this event a success. This was the longest trip for my roadster in over 33 years and we were a bit apprehensive on how it would perform. Other than spinning the lock on the trunk (Dave, thanks again for the fix) the car ran great. There was some very spirited touring on Saturday over some great roads lead first by Joe and then by Dave that we even managed to keep up with. Sign us up for next year!
