    Driving through a parking lot this morning and always looking for Teslas parked or on the road. Kind of like to get a feel for how many of each model I see out there in my area. Did a double take on this one.

    I think that is the strip from Evannex. I have the strip but no M3 yet. The RPM version was removed from their site.

    A lot of these vendors that were illegally using the Tesla Logo or Name plate got slapped with a Cease and Desist from Tesla.....a big no no.

    I think it would be funny to add exhaust pipes to confuse people. :)

    My lady says " No way in h## is the Tesla going to have a Firebird on the hood!" That was a popular car and decal of Iranians when we were in college.:) I have always teased her about doing that to our cars! Great picture and choice!

    I'm going to the track to do quarter miles against my brother on Wednesday, now that he's got his TransAm back on the road. This might be just enough to make the difference.

    You are right! The Trans Am were equally as popular and with the bird on the hood. In fact, I still own a 1979 Trans Am as well as another 81 hard top convertible Camaro. My son still also owns one of my other 1979 Camaro's.

    Yeah. Pretty much like that. Except I would have bubbles come out the exhaust to further confuse the public. I just had a random thought....imagine rush hour with hundreds of Teslas on the freeway spewing out bubbles out of their exhaust pipes. It would strangely make me smile.
