    Selected the first option. I read that as keeping it but treating it as a hanger queen. I'm pretty sure I'd still configure and buy my own car. Wife would probably think I'm crazy; why have TWO cars that you can't put in the garage? Hmmm... now that I think it over some more, maybe I'd sell it. <Ray runs off and puts more money into the Omaze kitty.>

    Since I'm taking delivery soon, I would donate it or sell it and give the proceeds to a charity.

    Probably give it to my daughter (she's waiting for her invite). Is that considered a charity?

    Interesting question. I'd probably sell it, to be honest, since I can't really think of why I'd want to keep it over my current one and the taxes would be annoying if I kept it.

    THAT SAID, I might swap the headliners and pillars from it into mine since it's got the microsuede.

    I would keep it for good causes such as giving test drives, clean energy rally's and events, basically use it as a show car. I would still keep mine as a daily driver and trade it in on a Model Y in a few years.

    I'm pretty sure that they are covering the taxes. On a similar note, has anyone heard if there Is there going to be another Perfect Tesla Raffle this year? The Perfect Tesla Raffle

    If they cover the taxes, that'd potentially change a few things.

    My own Model 3 should be here soon (fingers crossed) so I would definitely add this one to the garage so that I would never have to discuss with my wife who gets to use the Tesla.

    From the Omaze webpage:

    "This Tesla hasn’t been to space, but it’s still out of this world. With the taxes covered too, it’s time to buckle up and hit the road."

    About a 1/4 of the way down the page.
