    After following Tesla faithfully since 2008, I finally was able to afford one. Took delivery at end of November. Dual motor. Wore my vintage Roaster T for the occasion.

    Congratulations Rolo!

    I also have followed Tesla closely since 2008. Back in the day I saw more of your posts, and I appreciated the insight you provided.

    I am super happy that you now have your own Tesla. Enjoy!

    I remember meeting you at TMC Connect 2017 but had no idea you didn't own a Tesla at the time. Congratulations!

    Interested in details. What did affordability look like? What do you think of FSD?

    I had needed a new car and we needed AWD (living in Minnesota now). I finally am getting my house in the Seattle area sold off so we could finally afford the upfront costs. If not for that, it would have been a serious stretch initially. The only option we took was the blue paint because the children were adamant about it. FSD seems fun, but it'll be awhile before I have that kind of money to spare.

    Also the root beer flowed like water over a dam in the spring...
