    Ever notice how whenever there's a Tesla Roadster in a video or film you never see the people getting in or out? That's because most people don't look so good doing it.

    Rachel makes it look easy:

    Two things: She's wearing pants and the car is topless.

    Well, it's not going to happen the other way around.

    Well, it would be much more difficult if the car were wearing pants.

    But I think that she should try it anyway... you know... for science.

    Yeah, I was hoping this kind of banter would have been in the car ad models thread, which is why I double-posted.

    You'd think they'd be happy someone was still paying attention to Roadster, but no. This is a tough crowd. A video of me getting out of my Roadster, even with no top and the wind at my back, would probably make America's Funniest Videos.

    Unfortunately, Rachel's going out of town before I can reshoot. Next time she's back, I'll see if she's up to the challenge.

    Check out Elon's (ex)wife getting in his Roadster in "Revenge of the Electric Car." With arms full of packages to boot. Made it look easy.

    Even the slight height difference with the Mesh Top makes getting in/out easier.

    Nice Tesla grin!

    I think the most difficult thing is wanting to get out of the car! :wink:
