After hanging out and having good conversations inside the Tesla Motors Chicago store I headed outside to capture some more footage. My timing was just right since the service center was closing up for the evening and putting away a bunch of Model Ss for safe keeping.

I hadn’t seen a Tesla Model S in person until my revisit to the Chicago store last Saturday. My last visit there was the public Grand Opening event in 2010.

Not sure if I just got lucky – but I definitely hit the Model S motherload. From a Tesla Motors Club forum thread I read – not sure of the date – it made it seem like it was hard to come across a Model S at the Chicago store.

I find that odd considering there were at least 12 at that location on Saturday. 1 within the store, 2 with dealer plates out front, 3 in back of service door, 3 inside the service center and at least another 3 being pulled in.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to take a ride in any of them. On my visit in 2010 I got my one and only ride inside a Tesla Roadster.

Not sure how the Tesla service center employees get all those cars into what is a fairly small space.

I did my best to avoid recording what I thought was a potential sale going on out back. Over the years I have mixed reactions when people see a video or photo camera in use.

Disclaimer – I am a very minor Tesla Motors stock owner. Unfortunately I didn’t have near the amount of money I wanted to invest in this company. But I do own a few shares.
