Here's the three red roadsters that I know of in Chicago. We had them together last September at a local show. So, there must be another one lurking on the North Shore...

I think this was Long Beach. It is a sighting by proxy from my son.

No photos, but I spotted a Roadster at the Golden, CO Super Cruise on Saturday evening.

It was ivory or off white. Send me a PM if it was you.

Lived in So Cal all of my 62 years. Both my Buddy and myself commented a couple weeks ago about what is the last time we saw a Roadster on the Road ?? Can't remember, 15+ years. (obviously mine isn't on the road)

I saw this report of a Roadster left abandoned running last week in the Arvada / Wheat Ridge, CO area. Looks to be a ‘68. Does it belong to anyone here?

Saw this on Neighbors: https://neighbors.ring.com/n/VkXRb2WUbz

Interesting. If my car is ever found stranded, it's most likely because my wife found how much I spent on it. Then I would be missing for sure.

Flew up to Oakland (and ultimately Berkley) last week to pick up the new toy. The last time I did something like this was in my Roadster and oddly enough, just as I got going on the freeway I saw a Roadster coming up. I slowed down and got the camera. After snapping the pic, I realized it was none other than Mike Young himself! ... small world...

@theunz those are wonderful plates. Not sure I'll be keeping this wagon, just havent really gotten too excited about it yet even though its a great car.

Really? What part of So Cal? I’m always out and about (typically cruising PCH on the weekends). I also know there are many others down in Laguna Niguel/Laguna Beach area.

Nick, we have group in south OC that likes to gather once a month. Pm me your number and we can try to hook up next month (M-July) for our next outing.
