From the not even possible file... I have been on vacation for a few weeks and went to play golf at a course in Irvine CA this am..
There was a SLS Coupe when I pulled in and a SLS Roadster when I pulled out!!

I'm not sure Webster's Dictionary wrote this meaning but.. A Car spotter is a person who is typically strongly interested, in an amateur capacity, in car spotting, which is observing or photographing interesting, vintage, rare, modified, and/or exotic supercars on public roads. Car spotters can be found worldwide.

I was literally behind my SLS twin while driving my SLS. I was so excited and thought he would be amused as well. I got next to him a couple of times in traffic and he would not acknowledge me whatsoever. Maybe he felt like we showed up to the same party wearing the same outfit and was embarrassed. lol

I have had a ford Gt for nearly 10 years now and drive it often in the 10 years, I have only run into another fellow ford Gt owner on the road just once by accident. Now going to car shows or event there are usually other Ford Gts there but to run into one by chance is indeed a rare event, I assume it will be just as rare for the sis

Those red cars do look good and I'm not a big fan of red on any cars.

Not sure if you saw this shot but the Mars Red on the SLS is the right kind of red.

Ha ha, I take my 5 year old son there usually once a week as his ritual drive in "daddy's car". After a couple of rides, he wanted to start/stop the car and even throws it in reverse when it's time to back up(that one caught me off guard the first time). I think he likes the car more than I do.

It's nice to have that father/son time together. My uncle took for me a ride in his Austin Healey 3000 when I was close to your son's age, and I've been addicted to sports cars ever since...

I'm in the North Beach district of SF once or twice a month working with a non-profit if you are nearby let's grab coffee or lunch sometime and talk SLSs.

Stay dry! I've never seen an SLS Roadster on the road here in Northern California. I guess the 900+/- roadsters sent to the US are mostly down your way.
