    Grab your rep and take Em for a ride!

    I grabbed my Congressman and took him for a ride while explaining what was going on with the dealers associations. I suggested that sooner or later it will be an issue he will see and wanted to "arm" with the Tesla grin to be able to address his peers. The ride is here:

    Tesla Test Drive - YouTube

    Cheers!

    Watching that video from Bloomberg with Elon talking about "perverting democracy" you can see how angry he is. A very rare display of genuine anger and frustration.

    I'm sure Fisker owners will have something to say about how helpful their dealers have been. Disproves the whole argument.

    I'd like to formally announce my candidacy for the North Carolina House of Representatives. :biggrin:

    Honestly I think I'd prefer to be in the passenger seat with you driving. I bet that would be a fun ride!
