    Tonight I took race car driver Jeff Andretti, Mario's youngest son, for a ride in my P85+. His comment? "Amazing" :)

    Job well done! I believe I have sold 5 or 6 so far, including a boss. Life is good with our cars!

    I haven't sold any as the most people my age don't have the means for a Tesla, however I believe I have sold several future Tesla's (GEN III perhaps.)

    Cool:)
    We had our end of the year auto x banquet last weekend. I mentioned I had your autograph on my helmet to a group and our fastest female driver was kinda jealous and really excited. Cute girl w/pink hair and a miata w/pink racing stripes :)

    That's very cool. Years ago, I used to work course control at the Toronto Molson Indy back when Mario, and later Michael were driving. In the early days, I was even able to be on the track when they were gridding the cars for the Sunday race. It was cool seeing Andretti, Fittipaldi, Unser etc. getting buttoned into their cars.

    He was drinking, so he didn't ask to drive.
