    The Oldsmobile is now the car to drive with Trump in office and all the fracking!
    I would be tempted to take a car like this in partial trade on my roadster and then drive this around with a "traded my tesla in for this car!" bumper sticker. I have decided trading is actually not a bad idea with all of the fraudulent ad activity.

    It is hard for me to imagine that anyone would trade their Tesla for a vintage ICE, but I suppose it's possible.

    Suggestion: seems like it would be much easier to sell your Oldsmobile and then use the cash to buy a Tesla.

    I would consider doing it is as a protest! The cost of power from Pacific Graft and Extortion and the cheap fracking gas makes a Tesla Roadster Sport not that much better on energy cost per mile!

    Please tell me that drive-in really exists. If so, I have a new addition to my bucket list!

    I was actually serious about trading. Someone make an offer and take the black sport beauty away. I don't deserve it and I have 24 tons of rock coming to block the garage Saturday morning! It will be in hibernation for a month or more!

    I would seriously consider this if it was a 1970 with a 4-speed. That was my dream car before the Roadster was even imagined.

    The 442 are stunning cars, I teach our local high school auto class, they helped restore it and now I would like to get the students acquainted with a cool EV.
