Model Y delivery anxiety? The wait is worth it

This place does feel like a place where people come to tell their victim stories lately. So sad. Lots of people waiting to get their cars. I don't see this happening so much with the other car manufacturers. Wonder if their CEOs know what is happening. What will be the outcome in the coming years for the other car manufacturers? I saw an article about blackberry and how they didn't know or adapt to apple and Android so they just phased out and lost all of their market share.
Doubt that’s gonna happen. There’s too many tesla fan boys and girls out there and by the time one actually gets the car the rimming they received prior is just a memory in the past…even those with production issues that need to schedule a service appointment that will take weeks to book don’t mind. From what I’ve read and keep reading, people will just drink the juice and follow the great leader Elon.

now it’s in your head too.

You’re welcome.
Any VIN luck yet? Your order 1 week after mine, and wondering if you have had luck?
"If you're VInless and you know it.... clap your hands.." (love it)
