    I like the way mine turned out. Total cost about $60 bucks (from local Hobby Lobby)

    I've been thinking about it, but I want to go the DIY route for the frame.

    Think I'm going to do the same, I'll post when I have some pics. I hope one day I can get it signed by Elon, Franz or JB maybe all three.

    That's a good point do we all get one or is it just those who queued up before reveal?

    Did not get one, as I did not stand in line. Ordered online 4/01. I just copied the jpeg, & printed on home printer on photo paper. Taped up on the wall in my cube for motivation to save $$ for down payment / options. Not as high quality as what line-waiters got I'm sure, but serves its purpose.

    I did not wait in line but did order in-store, pre reveal on 3/31. I wasn't expecting to get anything but was pleasantly surprised when it came in the mail.

    I have come close to throwing this away. The only thank you gift I want is the car delivered on time.

    It's not even everyone who queued up. Both my wife and I placed pre-orders in store, but I'm the only one to get a thank-you gift.
