    That must be such a great feeling to know that your son played such a huge part in the development of the best car of the 21st century....and you're driving down the road in it.

    Life is grand!

    I've talked with Frank at a few Tesla EVents. He's a cool guy, and proud Pop.

    Neat. Franz has turned out a lot taller than Frank.

    A rather restrained compliment from father to son: "Much of the work he's done, I think very highly of."

    Is this the first Model S to be delivered in New England or have there been some founder cars delivered in New England already?

    @mikevbf: I haven't heard of any earlier delivery nor seen a MS on the road. I guess Franz sidestepped the "batching" requirements (as well he should).
